LA County has updated the Youth Sports Protocol to clarify the recommendations for teams traveling to LA County from outside of the County. They are encouraged but not required to submit negative COVID-19 screening test results but must continue to comply with all other aspects of the Health Officer Order and this Protocol.

No screening testing is required for athletes of any age, coaches, or support staff on moderate- or high-risk sports teams IF the team is only engaged in conditioning or skill-building activities where 6 feet of physical distance is maintained between participants at all times.

Staff/volunteers whose role/functions do not include direct interaction with players are exempt from testing requirements. Volunteers that interact with teams only periodically (e.g., volunteer referees) do not need to engage in weekly testing but must provide either proof of full vaccination or a negative test result within 3 days of their volunteer time.

They have also created a landing page specifically for parents: COVID-19 Prevention at Youth Sports Information for Parents & Guardians, dated September 27, 2021. Please feel free to share with your families.

We are in the process of vetting a potential tracking app. If you are interested in viewing the demo tomorrow evening (Thursday, September 16) at 6pm ET, please email me and let me know.

Also, please note that we have vetted a Mobile Testing company, Covid Testing Appointments and their info is below along with other FREE testing sites at pharmacies and Walmart. Here is an example from Region 20 of what message they sent out to their members.

Per Legal Commission – You NEED TO SEE a copy of Player/Volunteer official vaccination status, or if they are not vaccinated, they will need to provide proof of negative test that can be seen by the appointed person in a Region/Club in order to participate that week. If that proof is not produced, the person(s) will not be able to be involved with AYSO activities that week. Remember, you do not need to keep a copy of the proof once it is seen and documented.

As I noted yesterday, there is an issue in obtaining results from LAUSD and Santa Monica school districts in regards to testing results of their children. Right now, parents are encouraged to contact the school for the results if you are not receiving them. The County is working with the school districts to see how this can be more accessible.

In addition to Mobile Testing options that we are vetting, the County has sent out more info today that highlights other places that are offering FREE testing. Please visit these companies’ websites to learn more about their efforts to provide timely and accessible COVID-19 testing or to schedule an appointment.
No-cost testing is available at local health centers and select pharmacies:
