The health and safety of athletes, volunteers, and employees continues to be SOSC’s number 1 priority. Based on our understanding of the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases throughout Southern California and the growing concerns regarding COVID-19 variants in our communities, SOSC will remain in Phase 1 at least until October 31, 2021. We are making this extension to exercise an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of the athletes and volunteers that participate with SOSC. In accordance with our Return to Activity plan, we will provide another update by Friday, September 10.
What does this mean?
We will continue to offer training opportunities in Athletics, Bocce, Golf, and Team Wellness in small group settings of 10 or less individuals. The emphasis in Phase 1 will continue to be on general fitness and conditioning, followed by equipment introduction, and skills development. There will be no competition opportunities in Phase 1. For those athletes and coaches who are not ready to return to in-person activity, we will continue offering virtual events and activities; learn more at www.sosc.org/hlc.
How do I get started?
- Athletes and coaches need to complete two new forms, the COVID-19 Waiver and the COVID-19 Code of Conduct. You can find these on our website at www.sosc.org/rta.
- Athletes with an expired medical must renew their medicals.
- Volunteers must be current with Class A clearances.
- There will be some COVID-19 related training that you must complete to understand the health and safety practices that must be observed so that everyone stays healthy.
All of this information can be found at our Return to Activity website: www.sosc.org/rta.
What if I do not have access to a computer or I need help?
You can call 562.502.1103 to leave a message if you want assistance or to request that we send you the Return to Activity materials by mail. You can also contact your local SOSC office for assistance. We will respond to your inquiry within two business days.
All of us at SOSC look forward to seeing you back on the field/court soon.
