Update 9/27/21

Soccer is a contact sport and we want all to ensure everyone on the field is healthy while playing so we are requiring all players (referees and staff included) in the November Tournament must provide proof of vaccination OR negative Covid-19 test results (within 48 hours of Nov 5th check in) to play.  Flu season is on it's way, Covid is still here and spreading its new variants, and nobody needs, or more specifically, wants the cooties.  We successfully held 5 events through this pandemic without outbreaks and we plan to keep it that way. Click here for all the details. 


All of the safety guidelines as listed below are subject to change to stay 100% compliant with the State of Nevada guidelines for sports events.

​​Masks 
Masks are currently mandated in all indoor places in Nevada.  We will be masked up as we will be dealing with 2,000 people, and if you want to mask up then we encourage you to do so as well.  We will have extra masks at the tent if you choose when you arrive that you want one and don't have one. 



SANITIZER.  Each team will need to supply enough hand sanitizer for their participants and spectators for the entire weekend. 

  • Teams are responsible for sanitizing balls, see game rules.  Referee to verify with each team before start of play

  • Goal posts.  Goalies are encouraged to spray sanitize these at the completion of each game. On-site referees will have sanitizer at the field that can be used for this.

  • Additional sanitizer (for hands) will be placed throughout the facility for all to use.  

  • Additional sanitizer (for equipment) will be available for use upon request by asking on site field staff.  We will be using state approved sanitization products that require 5-minute contact for full protection, please be aware of contact time on label for proper use.  



Spectators

At this time there are no rules around having spectators.  If this changes per local guidelines then we will update it here. At this time we will not be requiring proof of negative vaccine for spectators.  Again, if things change locally so will this to be in compliance at all times.  



Prior to Play – While Playing – After Playing

  • Teams may not enter the scheduled field pod to play, more than 15 minutes prior to scheduled game (if departing team has vacated prior to the 15 minutes, teams can enter their sideline early). 

  • Teams will be designated a specific side of the field to use for personal set up.  Home team occupies the East sidelines, Away team occupies the west sideline.

  • No community seating will be provided

  • Teams are required to bring their own sanitizers, masks, personal protection items. 

  • Sideline substitutes are encouraged to wear a mask and must maintain 6ft of social distance between teammates and other participants on the sidelines.

  • No team pre-match walkout

  • 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

  • ​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. 

  • No spectating of other matches on sidelines will be allowed.  Must be registered with a team currently playing on that field to be on that sideline.

  • Teams are required to provide their own ball and are responsible for properly disinfecting as necessary.  


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.  

There is a large grass area (James Regional) for teams to use outside the field pods.  In this area you must maintain proper social distancing from those not residing in your household.  


Dogs - we all love them and want them around but rules say no.  The furry friends are not allowed at any time at this park. If, as a player or spectator, you require a service animal we advise you to sit out as we can't allow it.  We don't have the approval or ability to verify validity of service animal documents. It's a HARD NO on animals.

  • At James Regional Park this is a permanent rule.  At no time will animals be allowed at this facility.
  • Leave your dogs, cats, goats, etc. at home.
