COVID-19 Policies

Evanston AYSO is a volunteer community organization, not a program of the City of Evanston.  Our COVID-19 safety policy is based on what will allow the maximum number of people to participate and what we think is best for our organization.  Our policy may differ from official city, IDPH, or CDC guidance.


For Divisions 12U and under

All Players and Coaches are to wear masks during AYSO activities (practices, games, etc.).  We understand the IDPH guidelines do not require masks for soccer.  We want to err on the side of caution to make sure those with compromised households feel safe and able to participate.

For Divisions 14U and older

Vaccinated players are recommended to wear masks, but not required.  Coaches are asked to wear masks regardless of vaccination status.  Unvaccinated players are required to wear masks.


Unvaccinated spectators should also be masked based on City of Evanston guidance.  Vaccinated spectators are free to use their best judgement. 

Safety protocol

Parents are asked to voluntarily disclose any COVID-19 symptoms in their children within the previous week. Players, coaches, referees, and other volunteers who are not well, or have any COVID-19 symptoms, are asked to stay home from all activities.  Unvaccinated players with siblings or family members with COVID-19 symptoms are also asked to stay home.

If a participant tests positive: Contact Tracing is mandated and must be reported to [email protected].  If a player, coach, referee, or other volunteer tests positive for COVID-19, you must report this to [email protected] so that those potentially exposed can be notified.

If a participant is exposed to someone who tests positive: Unvaccinated individuals must follow CDC quarantine and testing guidelines as indicated by IDPH.  Vaccinated individuals must follow IDPH guidance for vaccinated individuals.

Safety checks on Gamechanger app are not required as they were in Spring 2021. 

The COVID protocol will be under consistent review and may be updated based on changing circumstances—including high temperature conditions.  We will review all policies one month into the season.
