(*Please note these guidelines are subject to change as guidance evolves)

With Illinois moving to Phase 5 and no updates by IDPH to the All Sports Policy in line with that change, effective immediately all IYSA members should follow their local guidelines for sports activities.

The Illinois Youth Soccer Association still requires COVID-19 waivers, but has no additional requirements at this time. Subject to change.

We encourage all eligible coaches, players, referees, administrators, volunteers and spectators to get vaccinated to keep us moving forward towards the soccer experiences we were used to pre-COVID.
