Fall 2020 Soccer Information

Illinois Governor Pritzker has just announced a new All Sports Policy effective August 15.
Note from CSI:

Essentially this policy currently classifies soccer as a medium risk sport. This classification therefore prohibits any competitive soccer games from August 15 until further notice.

We were hoping this fall season would occur with help from the Carbondale Park District, but because of this new policy, no soccer can occur. We do not interpret this current policy to allow any other football, volleyball, or soccer programs the ability to play either.

To help you fully understand this policy we are including the following information. We have pasted a link to the Illinois government website (scroll down to read this on the website). A link to the pdf as a whole (so you could view or download). You will need to copy and paste into a web browser to view the State of Illinois Website and PDF Document. Please scroll down to continue to read more.


From the website and pdf document is the following information.

Guidelines for Youth and Adult Recreational Sports

On July 29th, Governor Pritzker announced guidance for youth and adult recreational sports, including, but not limited to, school-based sports (IHSA & IESA), travel clubs, private leagues and clubs, recreational leagues and centers, and park district sports programs.

The guidance was developed in coordination with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO), and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).

The newly released guidance categorizes sports into three risk levels, low, medium, or high, based on the amount of contact between athletes and their proximity during play.

The guidance sets four levels of play allowed based on current public health conditions. In level 1, only no-contact practices are allowed and they must be outside. In level 2, indoor and outdoor practices and intra-team scrimmages are allowed but there can be no competitive play.

In level 3 intra-conference, intra-region or intra-league play is allowed and there may be state- or league-championship games allowed for low-risk sports only. In level 4, tournaments, out-of-conference play, and out-of-state play are allowed. State championship games would also be allowed in level 4.

Beginning Saturday August 15th, low risk sports can be played at levels 1, 2, and 3. Medium risk sports can be played at levels 1 and 2, and high-risk sports can be played at level 1.

Please see the guidance for youth and adult recreational sports document for more detailed information.
