September 2021 update

In light of the recent surges of COVID infections and changing state guidelines, SYSA decided to put to a vote a number of policies to be adopted for Fall 2021 games and practices. The outcome of this vote has resulted in the following guidelines:

To reduce Covid-19 transmission, SYSA requires that all players and coaches in unvaccinated age groups (B/G U10-U12) in association play wear a suitable face covering during games and practices for the 2021 Fall Season and City Tournament.

Full details can be found at the following link: https://www.sysa.org/return-to-play

To be consistent with SYSA, all SC Queen Anne players and coaches participating in ANY unvaccinated age groups will need to wear a mask during all club activities.

Players and coaches in U13 and up, as vaccine eligible, are advised to follow state guidelines.

We appreciate your support in having your team player follow these guidelines.
