Return-2-Play

Dear Greenfield Area Soccer families,

We would like to thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this time of uncertainty. Throughout the months of quarantine our Board of Directors, in collaboration with our club partners, have faced difficult decisions to ensure the safety of our athletes and families. As Indiana moves forward with the Back on Track plan, we are excited to move forward with our return-2-play.
 
As Indiana's Back on Track Stage 3 begins, you might wonder what it will look like to return to the soccer fields, and if it will be a safe environment. We have provided guidance for you below. 

Indiana Soccer Assoc. has implemented a detailed plan with protocols and guidelines and allows her clubs to Return-2-Activity.  This plan then leads to Return-2-Play.

Return-2-Activity is still No-Contact and social distancing.  This is a tough challenge for soccer players.

IMPACT Soccer just completed its first week of Return-2-Activity training.  It has been with much happiness to both players and parents, a great success. The implemented plan of orchestrated actions from parents, coaches and players worked to outstanding effect.

It is because of this success, that we are so pleased to announce that our Strikers FC Academy family is set to Return-2-Activity.

By knowing and following the protocols and guidelines set forth, we are most certainly up to the task of getting back on the fields.

Knowledge of these working standards is a must. A must for parents, players and coaches.

We have no doubt that our athletes can show the discipline, control, and order that will be needed during the completion of a session.
