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.
For indoor soccer: masks are required for all spectators, coaches, and players when they are not on the court.
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.
Return-to-Play Protocols COVID-19
All players and spectators should check in at the designated checkpoint before going to the playing field. At the checkpoint, each person needs to attest that they are not having any symptoms of COVID-19 and have not knowingly been exposed to COVID-19. All players must take a squirt of hand sanitizer and spectators are welcome to have some as well. Each family is asked to not bring more than 2 spectators per player to help QCFC keep the spectator count under 250 people per event. Spectators should keep at least a minimum of 6' between households and should stay at least 6' from any field of play. Please see the field map to know where the spectator area is for each field.
