RE:                Youth Sports COVID-19 Guidance & Requirements

On August 3, the California Department of Public Health issued guidelines for youth sports returning in a modified format. Youth sports and physical education are permitted only when the following can be maintained: (1) physical distancing of at least six feet; and (2) a stable cohort, such as a class, that limits the risk of transmission.

Ventura County Public Health Specific Youth Sports Guidance

The California Department of Public Health has issued Youth Sports Guidance. Youth sports training, conditioning and physical education is now permitted in Ventura County when those activities include continuous physical distancing of at least six feet and a stable cohort, i.e. the same children at each meeting, practice, class etc.  Teams, classes, and other youth sports activities that involve contact, competitive or team play are not permitted.

The State guidance document may be found at COVID-19 Industry Guidance: Youth Sports .

As an example, team sports such as football, baseball, volleyball, and soccer are currently prohibited under the state order, whereas sports such as surfing, singles tennis, golf, and singles rowing are allowed if conducted outdoors and six-foot physical distancing is maintained.

Any team or entity conducting youth sports training must register under Youth Sports at and follow the state issued guidance.

Please note that physical distancing must be maintained under the guidance, which precludes scrimmages, games, and team drills from being performed at this time. Further, all outdoor and indoor sporting events, assemblies, and other activities that require close contact or promote congregating are prohibited, including tournaments, events, or competitions and regardless of whether teams are from the same school or from different schools, counties, or states.

Since Ventura County is currently on the state’s monitoring list due to elevated case rates of COVID-19 all sports activities including conditioning, training and physical education must be conducted outdoors.

As most of you had been gearing up or running a Camp many of these items are probably already completed; however, if not these are the items which need to be completed prior to the District issuing field permits.

As a reminder each organization is required to follow the below steps per the State and County Guidance:

1.     Review Youth Sports guidance published by the State of California

2.     Upon reviewing the guidance, complete a detailed risk assessment of your business in accordance with the state guidelines

3.     Complete a written worksite-specific COVID-19 Prevention Plan and post it at your business or in this case make sure your agency has a copy on site in a notebook should you be asked.

4.     Implement the prevention measures identified in your worksite-specific COVID-19 Prevention Plan

5.     Designate an on-duty employee responsible for monitoring compliance with your plan

6.     Complete the attestation form

7.     Upon completing your attestation, an official from your local jurisdiction may conduct a site visit

8.     Post the hotline flyer form at your business so that it is visible to customers and employees. (COVID-19 Hotline Flyer)

Additional District Requirements:

·       Copy or email confirming your Youth Sports COVID-19 Business Compliance – (provide the 4 digit pin to District staff).

·       Insurance requirements must be updated and complete

·       Signed agreement meeting insurance requirements as well as confirming your agency will comply with all applicable law, rules, and regulations

·       Copy of your adopted practice and procedures for reopening

I appreciate your continued understanding and flexibility as we continue to navigate the public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the changing orders and guidance.  Furthermore, I appreciate the work you are doing to support your commitment to serve the community.
