Soccer – Youth

Whether your child is 2 or 12, the Peoria Park District has a great soccer program available for them!

Our community’s health is a priority for us. We have put a number of health precautions in place to this seasion to keep you and your children safe. These include:

  • Limits on the number of spectators allowed at practices and scrimmages
  • Each family will have their own socially distant circles to sit in
  • Participants are encouraged to bring their own soccer balls, in order to cut down on sharing equipment. (We will have soccer balls available for participants without access to their own.)
  • Coaches will carry hand sanitizer in their coaching bag for players to use. Each player is encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer as well.
  • There will be no “bench” this season. Any players not currently in the game will sit with their families in their socially distant circles.
  • Participants and coaches will be allowed to wear a mask if they choose.
  • Fields will be more spaced out than usual, to support social distancing.
  • We will not be playing games with other teams this fall. Instead, Park District teams will break into smaller squads and have scrimmages once each week.
  • Scrimmage times will be staggered and will include a 15-minute window in between sessions to allow teams to exit the field after their game without crossing paths with the incoming team.
