The safety of players, parents, coaches, referees, spectators, and volunteer staff are our priority. Additionally, we want to ensure your players have fun playing soccer! 

We hope the 2020 fall season will be locked in and kids will get to play soccer. As of June 15, 2020, the State of Alabama is allowing competitive play for recreational sports teams per the amended Safer at Home order. This order is in effect until further notice.  

We are following the State of Alabama's Guidelines for Adult and Youth Athletic Activities to the best of our ability. The following pertains to all players, parents, coaches, referees, spectators, and volunteer staff:

  • Anyone entering the field of play (pitch) during a practice or game are doing so at their own risk.
  • Anyone entering the field of play (pitch) during a practice or game must sign the COVID-19 ASSUMPTION OF RISK , WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY AGREEMENT (A parent/guardian must sign the liability agreement anyone under the age of 19). Download agreement by CLICKING HERE
  • NO ONE CAN ENTER THE FIELD OF PLAY (PITCH) OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY PRACTICE OR GAME UNLESS THE COVID-19 WAIVER LIABILITY AGREEMENT IS SIGNED. (The waiver was added to the online registration process on June 18, 2020. If you registered your player on or after June 18th, more than likely you have already eSigned the COVID-19 Waiver Liability Agreement. If you registered your player prior to June 18th, you will need to download the waiver liability agreement and sign, or drop by Soccer Central when open and pick up a form there and sign. After signing,please give the waiver liability agreement to your player's coach. To download, CLICK HERE
  • Prior to leaving your home for practices, games, and any other AYSO event, everyone must check themselves for COVID-19 symptoms by taking the self-test. Parents, please self-test your children (playing and spectating) if under the age of 19:

--  Have you had a fever (100.4 and up) in the last 48 hours?
--  Have you experienced new loss of taste or smell?
--  Have you experienced vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours?

  • If you answer "yes" to any of the questions above, please stay home and quarantine yourself for a minimum of 14 days.
  • Individuals can return with documented Covid-19 test results showing negative symptoms, or a doctor's note written on practice letterhead or script stating the individual no longer has Covid-19 symptoms. 
  • PARENTS AND ALL VOLUNTEERS, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING YOU AND/OR YOUR PLAYER(S) DOES NOT HAVE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS. If anyone displays symptoms of COVID-19, you will be asked to leave the park. To return to the park, you must have a doctor's note on medical practice letterhead stating there is no COVID-19 present. No 2020 fall season refunds will be given.
