U.S. Soccer "Return to Play" Information 
Thank you to everyone who filled out and submitted an online survey to help shape our "return to play" information. Among members, referees, coaches and fans, we received more than 13,000 responses, which gives us a solid base upon which to collate and create relevant information to distribute to all of you.

We are working quickly and diligently to provide detailed information about actions you can take to return to the field in a safe manner while encouraging a healthy environment. Once we have our Phase 1 guidelines, we will distribute to all members and also schedule multiple webinars with our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. George Chiampas, to review the information and answer any questions that you may have. Keep an eye out in your inbox for that forthcoming email.

In the interim, if you have any questions,  please let us knowand we'll do our best to assist.
