Late Friday, the San Diego Board of Supervisors announced that California would be allowing “youth camps” to begin. When California Governor Gavin Newsom released his guidance for counties, recommendations for “camps,” under which youth sports fall, were a start date no earlier than June 12th:
San Diego Soccer Players, However, Can Hit the Practice Fields NOW!
On Saturday, June 6th, San Diego County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar sent the following email to San Diego youth sports leaders:
Hello San Diego Sports Leaders!Kristin Gaspar
Great news! The County has successfully added day camps to our open for business list! Attached is the finalized safety protocol under which to operate a youth sports camp. Please post at your facility and distribute to your families. Yes—it should replace all prior versions. If you can adhere to these guidelines, you are good to go immediately!
If you are a soccer family in San Diego, expect to start hearing for your coaches and teams. Don’t be surprised to see practices described as “camps.” Since California health officials have given the green-light to “day camps,” youth sports will operate under the umbrella of “camps.”
Many clubs are working with their cities, schools, and parks departments to secure fields. Teams and clubs are also busy setting up safety protocols for their staff, players, and families. If you haven’t heard from your club or team yet, don’t worry. Rest assured that they are working hard to prepare for practices (ahem… CAMPS) to begin as soon as they can!
And if you need gear after month of training at home, soccerloco is here for you!
soccerloco stores in San Diego and Carlsbad are open on Wednesday!
