Annapolis Soccer Club Annapolis, Maryland

Return to Play Overview

On this page you will find Annapolis Soccer Club's return to play policies as Maryland, Anne Arundel County, and the City of Annapolis have loosened restrictions related to the COVID 19 pandemic. The environment is still very fluid and with that, ASC will update and modify this site when needed.

As an organization, Annapolis Soccer Club will continue to follow the guidance of state officials, Anne Arundel County, and the City of Annapolis to ensure the safety of our participants, families, staff, and our community. Our goal is for players and their families to have a comfortable and enjoyable season while adhering to the Safe at Play Guidelines.

Please note, implementing ASC's Safe at Play Guidelines will require a collaborative effort. We understand that players enjoy interacting with their teammates, but it is imperative that every player understands, adheres to and respects the social distancing requirements and no-contact guidelines that have been established.Each of us must be diligent at enforcing and following these protocols for the health and safety of our community. Players/families unwilling to adhere to the safety standards will be asked to remain at home. 

Please take time to read through each of the following documents provided so you have a full understanding of expectations.
