Stated by the VDH :

Soccer is permitted, however, players should not practice throw-in's or use their hands.  Gloves must be worn for Goalkeepers.


Additional Guidelines :

  • Assign a “station” for each player to place their equipment, and that they should return to during breaks.  Players should not pile bags on top of each other and should place their bags / equipment at a minimum of 6ft apart.

  • All players are to be responsible to bring their own bottle of hand sanitizer with them and should be used directly before and after practice.  For players who forgot to bring their hand sanitizer, there will be a station located at the Pavilion.
