Corona Virus Updates

 

 

 

 

 

 

The spring soccer season will be postponed through April 24th.

We will continue to work closely with the local rec soccer groups, referee association, school districts, city/county, and government agencies to make any determination about our ability to start practicing on local area fields.

Our hope is to be back to normalcy as soon as we can. We love the beautiful game of soccer; we love the positive impact it has on each one of our members. Safety of our members is our ultimate concern.

We encourage each player to begin training and conditioning at home during this time.

Please keep watching our Facebook page and website for updates

Please visit the OPS FC website for some videos your player can use to train at home and hone their technical skills during this down time.

With the recent cases of the COVID-19 Coronavirus virus in Washington state, we wish to communicate to all teams, players, coaches, game officials & families about best practices to protect everyone at soccer events.

At this time, all soccer related activities ARE POSTPONED. We will continue to monitor the situation, and update if there are any changes to this plan. In addition to the CDC & Washington Department of Health recommendations.  We will monitor our governing body US Club Soccer, our local competitive club PSPL and the Cascade School District for guidance on this matter.  

On March 17, US Club Soccer announced a suspension of all soccer activities 

This suspension includes all soccer activities. This includes not only activities directly operated by US Club Soccer, but also those US Club Soccer-sanctioned and related activities operated by member organizations, such as league and tournament play, scrimmages, practices/training, tryouts, team travel, large group meetings and related off-field activities.

To help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, please follow these important tips:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • All adults and children should stay home when sick. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional
