All programs will be operated under provincial COVID-19 phase 2 restrictions.

According to BC Soccer, the key aspect of soccer’s phase 2 is an introduction of soccer cohorts, which is an identified group of 50 players, or four teams, that will remain together for a specific period of time. Phase 2 for soccer is the same as phase 3 for the B.C. sport sector.

A group of 50 players (or four teams) can play unlimited games amongst themselves, with contact.  A new soccer cohort can be created after a two-week break. An example, for league scheduling purposes, could see one cohort of four teams play each other twice (once home, once away for a total of six games). A two-week break would then precede an entirely new cohort group of four teams or 50 players, which could play in the same six-game model.

Coaches and team staff do not necessarily need to be counted within a cohort; however, physical distancing and field capacity guidelines will still be in effect, which may vary by municipality.

The only on-field modification during soccer’s phase 2 is that throw-ins will be replaced by kick-ins from the touch line in order to limit hand to ball contact.
