Weekly Update: July 4th Return to Play Protocols

july 4th

Dear BRYC Elite Academy Families,

Effective July 1, our Governor announced the move forward with Phase 3 for reopening the State of Virginia.  BRYC Elite Academy will continue to impose adjustments to this third “phase” to ensure the safety of our players and staff

Per VYSA and the Governor’s office, clubs are permitted to play matches, however BRYC Elite Academy will introduce scrimmaging at practice sessions on a gradual basis.  From 7/6 to 7/19, we will emphasize social spacing and other Phase 3 RTP protocols (www.brycsoccer.com).  If all continues to go well, we will introduce Rondos, small-sided play (no 11v11), beginning 7/20. 

Starting Monday, our coaches will offer limited full-team training sessions under the restrictions/guidelines of our adjusted Phase 3 RTP protocol.  Players, Coaches and COVID Ambassadors are still required to complete the pre-training questionnaire before every training session.  To simplify the process, the club has created a Google Form to capture the responses.   

We would also like to remind you to review the Parent & Player Responsibilities located in the RTP Protocols.  These have been updated for travel outside the state.

Please continue to enjoy this time with your family and stay safe.  We appreciate your continued patience and look forward to getting everyone back on the field.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
