“Alexandria Soccer returned to play in fall 2020 and is operating under guidance from the City of Alexandria and the local health department,” the organization said on its website. “While we are thrilled to offer our tournament series at this time we will continue to operate with the safety of participants as our number one priority.”
The tournaments are scheduled for:
- Boys and Girls ages 13-19 — March 6-7, $900-$975 per team
- Boys ages 9-12 — March 13-14, $775-$850 per team
- Girls ages 9-12 — March 20-21, $775-$850 per team
Registration for each tournament closes a month before the tournament.
Alexandria Soccer has a list of guidelines aimed at mitigating the threat of COVID-19, like one spectator per participant and no physical contact between players like handshakes or high-fives. While some steps can help reduce the likelihood of COVID-19’s spread, sporting competitions like soccer are still considered a potential risk.
“If a tournament is cancelled due to COVID-19 please note that full refunds will be provided,” Alexandria Soccer said. “With this risk free policy we encourage you to apply early so that schedules can be created in a timely manner. (If your team needs to pull out of the tournament for any reason, the regular cancellation policy will be observed.)”
