Clubs located in counties designated "Green" by Governor Wolf may conduct soccer activity.
CDC guidelines for COVID-19 must be followed during the "Green" phase as we continue to battle to limit the spread of the virus.
Gathering size in PA is adjusted by Governor Wolf
- Under 2,000 people - 25% of max occupancy
- 2,001-10,000 people - 20% of max occupancy
- More than 10,000 people - 15% of max occupancy up to 7,500 people
- Under 2,000 people - 20% of max occupancy
- 2,001-10,000 people - 15% of max occupancy
- More than 10,000 people - 10% of max occupancy, up to 3,750 people
The limits are based on standards set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Life Safety Code and goes into effect on October 9, 2020.
PA West Soccer is currently in Phase IV of returning to play.
Phase IV means activity is open to include full-size matches and travel to play soccer beyond county or state lines. Clubs/teams must still follow the state/county/local directives for their county/community regarding mitigation of virus spread (mandatory masks, gathering size limits, etc.).
This does not mean clubs/teams can gather in a manner that is unsafe or in violation of state, county, local directives. All PA West Soccer RTP mandates must be followed and we strongly encourage the adoption of our RTP recommendations.
Current "Green" Counties can resume activity: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Bedford, Blair, Butler, Cambria, Cameron, Centre, Clarion, Clinton, Clearfield, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Fayette, Forest, Fulton, Greene, Huntingdon, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence, McKean, Mercer, Potter, Somerset, Venango, Warren, Washington, and Westmoreland.
Current "Yellow" Counties no activity permitted: None listed
