For all SBSC Staff, masks will be worn at all times. For Players, masks are REQUIRED during arrival/exit, check-in, and ANY TIME social distancing cannot be maintained.
Parents / spectators are only allowed to watch from the Ice in Paradise side of the field. All parents are required to wear masks when in public spaces, per the County of Santa Barbara. NO PARENTS OR VISITORS ARE ALLOWED ON THE FIELD OR INSIDE THE GATES OF GIRSH TURF.

Drop off is ONLY at the Phelps Road Parking Lot; Pick up is ONLY at the Ice in Paradise side. There will be no exit on the Phelps Gate, and no entry at the Ice in Paradise gate. To reduce crowds entrances and exits are one way only.

Players driving are to park in the Phelps Road parking lot. Coaches will know who is needing to retrieve a vehicle from the Phelps exit and will escort players out of the facility.

Water. Players will NOT be allowed to use their own ball. Please limit what you bring to training camp. Each player will have a designated space to place his or her belongings. Equipment for Goalkeepers will be communicated directly from the Director of Goalkeeping.

  • If a player develops symptoms of COVID-19, outside of camp participation, you are to contact the Executive Director immediately. From there, an assessment will be conducted, and if need be, the contract tracing and notification protocols will be activated.
  • If a player becomes symptomatic during training camp, that player will be moved to an isolated area, and the Potential Exposure Assessment & Response plan will be activated immediately.

Santa Barbara SC has developed an approved response plan to address this issue should it arise. While every precaution will be taken, in the event that a player does fall ill, parents or any player who had, or could be reasonable assumed to have had contact, will be notified. This would include all players on any given team, as well as any players on the field before, during, or immediately after a known exposure, and prior to sanitization of facilities and equipment.
