WHWSC COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS FOR 2022 SEASONS
WHWSC is excited to welcome players back on the pitch for the upcoming Spring and Fall 2022 seasons. Currently, there are no COVID protocols required while playing for the League; however, the League reserves the right to require compliance with any health screening, travel restrictions, mask mandates, or any other COVID related rules required by the Town, the State, or our governing soccer associations (CSSA, USASA). By registering, every player agrees to comply with any COVID protocols implemented at any time during the season. There will be no refunds issued for failure to comply with COVID protocols. Any failure to follow COVID guidelines, implemented at any time, could result in a player being barred from participating in league games.
However, as the Covid pandemic continues into the third year, it is still important that players take certain precautions to minimize the risk of potential exposure to COVID-19.
The league asks that any players who develop any COVID like symptoms to avoid playing until they obtain either a negative COVID test or are symptom-free for 5 days.
It is essential that all players self-report to the WHWSC league secretary Sofia Villagren-Whitcomb (firstname.lastname@example.org) if they develop COVID like symptoms or have a positive test for COVID-19 within the 2 days following a game. Failure to report a positive COVID test could result in suspension from league play.
Any player who learns, after playing in a game, that they were exposed to COVID-19 in the 48 hours prior the game agrees to get a COVID-19 test as soon as practicable and will report a positive COVID test to the league secretary.
Additionally, WHWSC reserves the right to update, revise, or amend these protocols in accordance with any requirements by the State of Connecticut, the Town of West Hartford, and/or the Connecticut State Soccer Association. Past safety measures and protocols adopted by the league have included mask requirements for players while off the field, mask requirements and other restrictions on spectators; health screening and travel certifications, temperature checks, and social distancing requirements.
