Dear Warner/ASG Members,
We are all missing our teammates, coaches, parents and yes, we even miss the meadows. As promised we have been closely monitoring the progress of the COVID-19 virus; In conjunction with the national and state guidelines, we have pushed our potential starting dates back to April 30th.
In the next few days we will be contacting each participating member directly with information specific to your program; please ensure that you have not ‘unsubscribed’ from Warner Soccer’s emails AND if your program email includes a google forms survey PLEASE fill out all questions ASAP to help us plan accordingly.Additionally, we would love for you to join us on our social media platforms to keep up our development as best we can. We currently have two social media programs going with another one coming soon! This is a great way to stay involved with our ASG Family while social distancing.You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and now Youtube.
Because we know there are things much more important than soccer at a time like this we will be adding a page on our website called Community Connection. This page will be a place that all of our ASG members that own/work for local businesses can identify their business and service. This will help all of our ASG Family support each other in this trying time. If you would like your business on that page please email Coach Chris with the following information:
Your business’ name, location(s), hours of operation and what product or service you can provide.
In our 30 years we have never faced a challenge like this with such an uncertain outcome; but knowing that we have each other both on and off the field is a great comfort.
Keep the ball moving, Stay safe and healthy
GO ASG, GO USA,
Warner/ASG President and DOC

Our goal for the 2020-2021 is to limit the dislocation of our program, teams and families. We will once again focus on the US Club Soccer I-10 Alliance League, competitive play with NO overnight stay and competitive youth tournaments.
We have maintained our club partnerships for next year and are looking forward to getting back, on the field.
Another email will be coming for returning players who will be receiving a credit for a portion of the spring season. This credit will be applied toward player development fees in the fall.
Registration and Administration fees for the 2020-2021 seasons will be due at sign up for the fall season.

PHASE 1: We will continue to enforce social distancing guidelines per the CDC. Phase 1 will limit any training sessions to groups of 4-6 players to one coach. There will be no contact between players and these sessions will be more technical based. Players will not be allowed to congregate before or following the training session and will be ased to immediately return to their vehicles following the session. Players will be asked to leave their personal belongings and water bottles on the perimeter of the field with at least 10 feet between players. Coaches will be required to wear masks if they are within 10 feet of players and there will be no physical contact such as "high fives" or "fist bumps." Parents will also be asked to remain in their vehicles during the duration of the session.
PHASE 2: Phase 2 will be initiated once FYSA and USSF guidelines become more relaxed. During this phase we will grow our small groups to 10 players maximum. Small sided games such as 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, and 5v5 within these small groups will be allowed. During this phase, the rest of our guidelines will still be in place.
PHASE 3: This will be our final step before our full return to play in the fall. Phase 3 will including slightly larger interclub matches with numbers up to 7v7. All of our remaining guidelines will remain in place.
1) Group Size
Each small group will be between 4-6 players to one coach.
Each small group will arrive 10 minutes prior to their starting times. Designated drop off locations will be adequately marked at the practice site.
Parents are not permitted to attend these small group sessions and can either park and wait in their cars or return once their player is finished with the session.
4) Physical Contact
Coaches will ensure that all players and coaches avoid “high fives,” handshakes, or other types of physical touching.
Coaches will be required to wear masks during training sessions. Players will also
be allowed to wear masks while training, but this will be a personal choice of the player’s parent of guardian. Hand sanitizer will be available but players should also have their own for personal use.
6) Necessary Equipment
Players will need to provide in their soccer bags, a ball, their own water bottle, hand sanitizer and a towel if necessary. Players will place their bags in assigned areas that will be spread at least 10 feet from each other. Please have your player arrive fully dressed in shin guards, socks and cleats.
Pennies (if needed) will be provided from the club to each player and then collected to be laundered at the end each session. Pennies will not be shared with other players.
7) Coaching Restrictions
Coaches will handle setting and cleaning up all training items including cones, goals, etc.
Coaches will also avoid having players stand or assemble in lines or small groups. Coaches will alter their training methods to incorporate appropriate social distancing (maintaining 6’ distancing between players when providing instruction, etc.).
8) Special Thoughts
ASG will assign staff to be physically present to monitor fields and facilities and ensure that players maintain appropriate social distancing throughout the small group training. All training equipment will be sanitized after each session.
9) Pick Up
Players will be dismissed at designated pick up areas. Parents may drive and pick up their player or walk up while maintaining social distancing from others to pick up their player.
ASG has the right to ask your player to leave a session if they are sick, have a persistent cough, running a temperature or displaying any symptoms suggesting that they may be ill will be prohibited from attending the training and asked to leave. Our first priority is the health and safety of our staff, coaches and players. Any player that does not comply with the guidelines will be asked to leave and no money will be refunded.
ASG also has the rights to cancel or postpone the training due to COVID-19. ASG will follow all state and city guidelines in regards COVID-19 and will update any procedures as they are added.
