PLAY ON Indoor Soccer Guidelines
Last week, we released the PLAY ON Indoor Soccer Guidelines on the PLAY ON information hub. These guidelines are meant to me used on when it is considered safe to play soccer indoor based on your state and local guidelines.
The guidelines advise the use of larger indoor facilities for acceptable social and physical distancing, as well as higher frequency air exchange rates to reduce risk. Shorter training sessions with fewer players on the field and no throw-ins can also help decrease risk, while players and coaches should continue to wear a mask when not physically active.
On the webinar this Thursday, our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. George Chiampas, will join to answer questions about the PLAY ON indoor guidelines.
