2020 Summer Soccer
UPDATE: 7/1/2020 Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate these unique and challenging times.
We have been continually monitoring local and state health guidelines, and have been working closely with other local and state recreation organizations to best interpret the current guidelines, and apply those guidelines to our various programs. In addition to current health guidelines, we are also needing to factor in budgets, staffing capacity and community impact, when making decisions about our summer recreation leagues.
Although some of the rules and guidelines around outdoor and adult recreation have loosened in the past month, there are still many hurdles and restrictions that make hosting large group gatherings extremely difficult, if not impossible. At this time, group sizes for adult sports leagues are limited to 25 people, social distancing of 6 feet or more is still required, masks are encouraged during recreation, and it’s highly encouraged that games only take place every two weeks. There are also specific guidelines recommending that people do not participate in high-contact sports, such as soccer. In addition to these rules, we’ve also seen a significant uptick in COVID cases over the past two weeks.
We have spent a great deal of time over the past few months developing proposed mitigation plans and brainstorming numerous scenarios in which we could safely host an abbreviated summer soccer league. After weeks of thoughtful discussion and debate, we have decided NOT to move forward with the City of Steamboat Springs Summer Soccer Leagues this season. While we know that many of you will be disappointed by this decision, we feel as though this is the best course forward for the health and safety of our staff, our participants, and the community as a whole.
We appreciate your participation and hope to see you on the field again soon.
Summer Soccer Leagues will not be offered this year due to current state and local health guidelines concerning COVID-19.
