Governor DeWine released the Responsible RestartOhio guidelines specific to Phase II – Contact for Sport Practices.   Of particular emphasis in the new guidelines are the following:

  • Contact in training may resume for soccer on June 22, 2020. This does mean contact in small groups, team scrimmages or intra-club.
  • Scrimmages against outside teams are NOT permitted at this time.
  • Sanctioned League and/or tournament play is NOT permitted at this time. Travel to out of state tournaments is also still not permitted at this time.

Ohio South has created a Return to Activity page on their website. This includes a collaborative PowerPoint between Ohio South and Ohio North on Mandates and Best Practices, USYS Best Practices and examples of fellow State Association guidelines on Return to Activity.

As a coach of the Dublin Soccer League’s DSX Soccer Club, I agree to abide by the following code of conduct:

  1. A Coach’s 1st priority during every contact with players under his supervision is the health and safety of the players. Players will not be penalized for parental concerns regarding inclement weather.
  2. Coaches will recognize that the greatest threat to players of serious physical harm or death in soccer occurs from the use of unanchored goals during games or practices and will refrain from using them under such circumstances. Moving previously anchored goals is grounds for misconduct.
  3. Coaches will treat all players, parents, coaches, referees, and others associated with DSL programs with respect including addressing players and referees in a positive manner. Under no circumstances will a coach use physical force and/or verbal abuse with players from any team.
  4. Coaches will refrain from the use of alcohol, smoking, vaping and profanity around children.
  5. All coaches are expected to assist in maintaining proper sideline decorum by parents/spectators, specifically abuse of referees. Under no circumstances will a coach use or tolerate physical force and/or verbal abuse with players from any team. No profanity is permitted.
  6. Coaches will provide players with an atmosphere that develops an appreciation of the game of soccer; which emphasizes the value of sportsmanship, effort, and the fun of the game; and which keeps winning and losing in proper perspective.
  7. Coaches will ensure that each player receive 50% playing time over the course of the season (except where an injury has occurred), significant experience at all positions, and equal opportunities to start games for each player.
  8. As a DSX Coach, I will be financially responsible for any fines I incur for violating the Coach Code of Conduct.
  9. The roster is not for public disclosure by either direct duplication or via posting on a website.
  10. Coaches shall conduct themselves in the spirit of sportsmanship and fair play in an effort to benefit all DSL participants.
  11. Coaches shall follow guidelines established in Ohio South’s Zero Tolerance Policy Against Abuse, particularly those included in item number six.
  12. Coaches shall ensure that each child is in the custody of an adult parent/guardian following games or practices.
  13. Coaches are urged to exercise caution in the use of first aid and not dispense any type of medication.
  14. Coaches will adhere to the policies, rules and regulations of the Dublin Soccer League.
