Ontario Soccer, in consultation with Canada Soccer and governmental sport and public health advisors, continues to monitor the most recent developments surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Government of Ontario announced recently that it is increasing the social gathering limits from 5 to 10 people and that it will be taking a regional approach, in their Stage 2 plan, for the re-opening of the economy.
Also included in this announcement was the directive that Outdoor Amateur Team Sports can begin “training” under Ontario Soccer Phase 1 in specific regions of the province.
As of June 24, 2020, the following Districts are able to enter Phase 1 of the Ontario Soccer Return to Play plan:

Please be advised of the following critical sport specific steps that your organization must now take to begin Return to Play and the directives from Ontario Soccer, in alignment with Canada Soccer on soccer’s implementation plan.
