TORSO Covid-19 Policies

TORSO follows the guidance of our national organization, USSF. We can move out of phase 0 when Harris County has had 14 days of declining COVID-19 case numbers.

The Covid-19 Lockdown Phases are as follows:

Holistic approach with both COVID and physical wellness in mind

Phase 0: Stay and Shelter

  • No recreational organized activities

When there have been 14 days of declining case numbers, move to phase 1

Phase 1 - Individual and Small Group Training (4 - 6 weeks)

  • Small group practice
  • Players haven't been playing, need to get back in shape and develop habits
  • No throw-ins or headers
  • Maximum of 9 players and 1 coach allowed (or less, based on state/local social distancing guidelines)
  • No refs
  • Maintain COVID-19 mitigation and incident action plans

Phase 2 - Larger group practice (3 - 6 weeks)

  • Small sided games possible
  • No refs or extra people
  • Maintain COVID-19 mitigation and incident action plans

Phase 3 - League play can begin, with refs and regular rules (throw-ins, headers allowed)

  • Player gear stations 6 ft apart, not the usual camps
  • Masks until playing, back on right after
  • Leave field immediately after game
