    • What if it is sunny?  Wear a hat...
  • No community seating will be provided
  • Teams are required to bring their own sanitizers, masks, personal protection items. 
  • Sideline substitutes must wear a mask and maintain 6ft of social distance between teammates and must maintain 6ft distance from other participants off the field.
  • No team pre-match walkouts
  • No pre-post-match handshakes/high fives/hugs/kisses or anything else that requires touching.
  • Team manager is responsible for monitoring social distancing from sidelines.
    • Keep equipment/personal items/chairs 6’ apart.  
    • Those not residing in the same dwelling must be distanced by 6’ on the sidelines. 
  • Teams need to leave the fields as soon as reasonably possible after completion of the game.  Must be off fields and out of the pods no later than 15 minutes after completion.  Following teams may not enter until entire fields are empty.  
  • All games will be spread out with 30 minutes in between to ensure limited number of participants in field pods at any given time will not exceed State of NV requirements. 
  • No spectating of other matches inside the field pods will be allowed.  Must be registered with a team currently playing to be in the field pod area or registered spectator. 
  • Teams are required to provide their own ball and are responsible for properly disinfecting as necessary.  
  • Players should avoid referees by 6ft.  

All participants need to respect the 6’ rule.  When talking to tournament staff, when seeing your buddy from another team, when waiting in line for the restroom, all of it.  SIX FEET SOCIAL DISTANCE AT ALL TIMES.  

Warm up/Relaxation areas – Due to the obvious and the guidelines as stated here you are limited to the amount of time you can warm up on the field.  This soccer complex is still in construction phase so the pretty fields you see that we aren't using are still "under construction", no we cant open them up, we don't have access to them.  If we did you would be playing on them.... 

There is a large grass area for teams to use outside the field pods.  In this area you must maintain proper social distancing from those not residing in your household.  Teams will be warned if not following these rules and potentially penalized.  


No Animals (this is a park rule all the time at James Regional Park).  Leave your dogs, cats, goats, etc. at home.  

All participants should follow the guidelines below to protect against infections.

  • Wash your hands with disinfectant soap and water for at least 30 seconds
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Cover coughs/sneezes with a tissue and throw directly in a trash container.
  • Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Wear a facemask for added protection
  • Avoid sharing food, drinks, towels
  • Wear a clean uniform to each match
  • Use adequate field space for social distancing 

 
The Bottom Line – We aren’t putting up with any nonsense!

  • We have no interest in being the social distance police but if need be, we will be.  
  • We do not want to penalize teams for not following these guidelines, but we will. 
  • We don’t want to be the wear a mask police, but we will be.
  • You are legally an adult if you are playing in this event.  Don't act a fool and play around, be a responsible adult.
  • Don't waste your energy fighting the rules, use that energy for good like spreading compliments.  Don't go on a 5 minute rant about wearing the mask or being 6' apart, nobody wants to hear it. We get it, nobody wants to do these things but until this virus is gone it's how we roll. 


We are extremely lucky to be given the opportunity to hold this event in the first place.  We will abide by ALL the guidelines given to us by the State of NV and we are not going to mess it up.  All of these things are put in place to keep BOTH of us safe (not to mention the tons of people you come into contact with on a daily basis).  Yes, we want to hug (most) of you, but not this time around.  Can we still laugh and have fun and catch up?  Absolutely, but just from 6’ away.  If it seems hard to do, then forego the deodorant and perfumes and people will be less likely to get closer than 6’:)

​​We were regisitered and paid for a spring tournament that was postponed.  Can we use that payment for a future tournament.  

  • Yes!  Emails have been sent to team managers. 


Will we be refunded for a previous payment?

  • No. Please read on....
  • Your payment can be able to be applied to a future tournament (fall 2020, or any event in 2021).


Women's I was scheduled to be at Silver Bowl and Women's II at James Regional, will this be the same when rescheduled?
We have decided to just postpone the Women's I & II until 2021.  We will not know (as usual) what park permits we will get in 2021.  Our hope is to hold all events at James Regional Sports Park but it is not up to us.  As soon as we know it will be posted on the tournament page. 

Will there be a price difference?
Possibly.  If your initial event was planned for Silver Bowl Park and the new event you want to attend is at James Regional then most likely yes. This answer is specific to each event. 

What if my team can't make it to any of the postponed tournaments?

  • We will apply your previous payment to any event in fall of 2020 or any event in 2021.  Teams managers have been sent info regarding their event.


We were registered in the Coed Tournament (May 2020) when is this being postponed to?

  • We have rescheduled the event for 2021
  • Teams can opt to use the previously paid May fees for any of the fall events or any event in 2021.


My team won it's division in 2019 and we didn't get to play in the spring...

Your team can register for any event in fall 2020 as a replacement to the spring event.  If your team wishes to wait until 2021 to play your team will be issued a $300 credit towards a 2021 tournament entry.  Women's I O55, O60, O65, O70 teams have automatically be been pre-registered in the 2021 event as those divisions are not options in the fall events.


Will the November tournament still happen?

  • YES!!!........
  • Registration IS OPEN
