HSC Travel and Elite Families – Game Information  


The Fall Soccer Season is here!  At the forefront of our thoughts is the safety of all individuals participating (players, coaches, and officials) as well as the enthusiastic spectators that support our HSC teams.  


Due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will make some necessary changes to the Fall 2020 season to make it a safe and successful Fall season.  


Anyone feeling unwell or exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms should not attend and stay home. Think safety first!  


Coaches must wear masks when on the sideline for the whole game.


Coaches should maintain social distance (six feet) from the touchline to avoid contact with players or game officials.  


Players on the field and game officials during the game are required to wear masks.


Players on the sideline must wear masks and keep a social distance of 6 feet.


Players cannot share water bottles and they should bring their own ball for the warm-up.  


Only 2 coaches are permitted on the touchline per team.  


Teams will be on one side of the field, and spectators should be on the opposite side of the field in the same half as their team’s coaches.


Players and coaches are to use hand sanitizer frequently.


Post-game there are no handshakes, and each team can clap / applaud or cheer for the other team from their half of the field.  


Players’ bags and equipment are not to be piled into one small area (social distancing courtesy) but should be distributed at least 6 feet away from each other.


Teams should not use team benches or tents for players on the sideline.




Anyone feeling unwell or exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms should not attend and stay home. Think safety first!
