Montana Youth Soccer has outlined some return to play protocols and QCFC will be strictly following these protocols. Please familiarize yourself with the protocols below. These are zero tolerance policies so make sure you are following them.
We will not be allowing the use of pinnies and will not be giving out balls at this time. Each player needs to provide their own ball.
Montana Youth Soccer has created the following Return-to-Play Protocols based on Governor Bullock's Reopening the Big Sky plan, recommendations from local health departments and guidance from the US Youth Soccer Return-to-Play Committee. The measures outlined within this document are intended to keep both our soccer families and Montana's general population healthy and safe. The knowledge and circumstances around COVID-19 are changing constantly and, as such, Montana Youth Soccer makes no representation and assumes no responsibility for the completeness of this information.
