In an effort to lessen the spread of Covid-19 and keep our environment safe for all participants and spectators the following protocols are now in place until further notice.
Every team participating in the 2021 Spring Season of the El Paso Premier League is to upload the COVID-19 Waiver for every player.
Our referees and field marshals are following proper pre-screening protocols prior to attending our events. Players and any spectators should not be attending any games if they are exhibiting any symptoms related to Covid-19. This includes but is not limited to a fever of 99 degrees or above, shortness of breath or cough. If you or anyone on your team has been exposed to Covid-19, please do not attend any league event for 14 days.
Face Coverings are mandatory for everyone that is entering the league venue.
Players may remove their face coverings while occupying team benches, on the field of play during games, during warm-up activity on fields, or prior to games in designated warm-up areas. However, all other people entering the West Side Sports Complex must wear a mask at all times. ***Coaches must be wearing a face mask during games***
Failure to comply with the face covering requirement could result in penalties for your team which could include your removal or your Coach’s removal.
Consequences for teams not complying with established guidelines/protocols would range from an initial conversation, reiterating the guidelines and protocols, then asking the offending party/parties to leave the complex, possibly removing the coach and under severe situations forfeiting the game and asking team to leave.
In order to manage the social distancing requirements at our venues, we ask that only ONE PARENT attend each match per participant. If at any point social distancing is not manageable on your sideline, the team coach and or manager will be responsible for reducing the number of spectators, in order to stay compliant. (If at any time, State or Local orders require us to reduce the number of spectators, each team must comply.) At risk spectators including elderly or those with underlying health conditions should consider not attending our events.
All participants including Team Officials and spectators are to bring and or supply their own hand sanitizer, towels or disinfectant of choice.
