Pinnacles FC Return to Play Plan Updated May 25
As you may have heard or seen, today the BC government announced its Restart Plan. We are pleased
that the plan includes the easing of restrictions for sport and soccer, some that take effect today and
ease further over time.
We received zero lead time to these announcements; therefore, we are still working through the details
on what is allowed. Below we share the Restart Plan chart information relating to travel and sport.
Based on the chart and information available on the BC Government website, we are sharing what we
know today and are advising all members and affiliated clubs that as of today, the following applies to
sanctioned soccer activity in BC:
- Outdoor soccer can occur for both youth and adults with the following restrictions:
o Travel must be kept to the travel regions as defined by the BC Government:
▪ Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley
▪ Vancouver Island
o Players can participate in contact training (within their travel region):
▪ With their home club/team, and/or
▪ With another organization offering supplemental training.
o Organized gameplay must be “local”.
▪ ViaSport has advised that “local” is currently defined as “in-club”.
o Spectators are not allowed yet for outdoor soccer.
o Soccer activity must occur on the assigned field.
