THUSC RETURN TO PLAY PROTOCOL v2
 
updated Sept 2020


In response to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Tualatin Hills United (THUSC) and Crossfire United (CU) continue to monitor state and local authorities guidelines and mandates  for a safe and responsible return to play.
 
We know that everyone is excited to be out there training again, however, it is imperative that all coaches, players and families adhere to these current guidelines. Our plan addresses many critical details which must be followed by all players, parents, coaches, staff, etc. to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved with our club and community.


Our main priority is the safety of our members as we continue the  return to play process. We will continue to follow the guidelines set by our soccer governing bodies as well as health officials.

These guidelines are intended to help keep us safe and members will be promptly notified of any changes as they occur.
