COVID 19 Protocols & Guidelines for Youth Soccer

Friday Harbor FC COVID-19 Protocols for Games and Practice

In accordance with Washington State Health Orders and Washington Youth Soccer protocols, Friday Harbor FC has the responsibility to keep our players, families, coaches, referees, and spectators safe throughout the season.  Considering that all age groups include unvaccinated children, FHFC has adopted the following health and safety protocols.

  • During games, FHFC respectfully asks all players, coaches, referees, families, and spectators who are not actively playing in a game to wear a mask with the usual exceptions for those under 2 or those with health conditions that prevent mask wearing. Everyone on the sidelines that can be masked, should be masked.

  • At practices, coaches should be masked at all times.  Players should be masked and maintain distance before and after practice.  The only time masks are not requested is during active practice time.

  • Physical distance should be maintained whenever possible.  Accordingly, changes should be made to the following activities to avoid close contact:

    • Team huddles

    • Team cheers, celebrations, thank yous, handshakes, and high fives

    • Player line up for referee

  • Players will not share water bottles or snacks.

  • During games, we ask that teams and their spectators occupy opposite sides of the field.

  • U10 and U8 game schedules will have 30 minutes between games to allow time for teams and spectators to clear the field area before the next group occupies the field.

  • U12/11 and U14/13 traveling teams should also follow the guidance from SKVYSA, link below.

FHFC would like to thank everyone in our community for helping to make this soccer season safe and fun for our kids. 


FHFC will be following these protocols on-island as well.  Please be aware there may be additional requirements or restrictions based on local jurisdictions.  Game scheduling will likely include time for teams and spectators to clear the field before the next game begins.
