Update / Return to Practice Timeline and Guidelines

Update: Thursday March 26th 2020

Dear DFA Club Coaches Players Managers Families,

I hope everyone is doing well through these unprecedented times.

We want to provide you with some up to date information regarding the current DFA club practice season.

With everything that has been going on over the past 2 weeks DFA has been closely monitoring the Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization’s statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following the recommended guidelines from these agencies and local health departments as well as updates from US Youth Soccer and Ohio South Youth Soccer.

In addition to this, we have been closely monitoring the recommendations from local, state and regional authorities, on how we should proceed based on the current public orders that are in place.

We are also speaking with local medical advisors on an action plan regarding a return to practice procedure for DFA Club Players.

Therefore as of March 27th we have set the following timelines and guidelines for our DFA club players to return to practice.
