Hello Coaches, Team Managers, Referees, Parents, Players and all our spectators.
We received our one and only WARNING about supposed non-compliance with COVID 19 protocols. If we DO NOT COMPLY, WE LOSE OUR PERMITS.
The letter below was sent by one parent to Washoe County Health District.

Dear Great Basin Youth Soccer League Administrator,
I am writing to inform you of unsafe COVID-19 behavior I witnessed at my daughter’s first soccer game Saturday, April 17th at the Moana Fields.
1. Our soccer coach wore a mask around the chin when shouting directions to the kids and wore it that way most of the game and most of the times at practice as well.
2. The opposing team’s coach never wore a mask.
3. Both coaches spoke with each other at very close distance; both not wearing masks.
4. Our coach was constantly double high fiving our kids with bare hands going directly form one child to the other.
5. At the end of the game, the coach made each child put their hands-on top of each other’s hands in a tight circle and had the yell “go team” into each other’s faces while no child was wearing a mask.
6. At the conclusion of the game, spectators formed a gauntlet tunnel with hands touching overhead for the children to run underneath past many unmasked parents who were cheering loudly into the center of the group of running children.
As you must be aware, Covid-19 variant B 1.1.7 is highly infectious and very contagious. Children are being infected now at high transmission rates. Outbreaks are mostly being attributed to youth sports in Reno and around the nation. I was appalled to see the behavior that was occurring at the first game of the season. You would have thought that there was no ongoing pandemic. I was very hesitant to enroll my children this season but went ahead with the understanding that there were Covid safe practices being implemented. I just reviewed the posted protocols on the GBYSL website and was dismayed to see that they were mostly being ignored and there was no enforcement.
I ask that coaches receive a special training going forward on safe Covid-19 protocols and that the rules be enforced to keep my children and the community safe from unnecessary disease spread.
A very concerned parent whistleblower
Effective immediately we are enforcing the following:
Coaches must wear masks at all times during practice and games.
High five and huddle after game is prohibited.
No handshaking with other team or referees
No celebration after the game.
Please exit the field area immediately after your game so we can clean the area and get ready for the next game.
No gauntlet tunnel.
All parents and spectators must wear masks at all times and practice social distancing. If you feel you cannot follow this guideline then please don’t attend the game. This is NOT a GBYSL rule. Governor Sisolak issued Directive 024 last year and it is still in place. His last speech he was VERY clear as to mask for the time being, they are to be worn. This is not a political platform; we respect your opinions however we have to follow COVID guidelines. If you forget a mask don’t worry, we will have them available at the entrance of each field.
Social distancing on the bench, tactical area and spectator areas.
If the above is not followed, we are not going to allow spectators into the field. We are confident it won’t come to this.
We have to totally enforce the guidelines set by our Governor. You will be asked to leave the field if you do not wear your masks properly, over mouth and nose. Please don’t get mad at us or take it out on staff, we’re all in this together.
We are aware of the CDC announcement yesterday. If the mask protocol changes, we will follow accordingly and let you know ASAP. We are receiving a lot of calls as to this issue. We understand and our staff is doing the best they can given the circumstances. We know some of your children play other sports and they have varying degrees of mask protocols. We are following the guidelines given to us.
The league is asking for your cooperation for our children to continue playing the game they love. Remember this is for the kids and a return to a sense of normalcy. Let’s not ruin it for them, we all in this together. We will return to fully normal games.

Gov. Sisolak announces emergency directive, guidance related to youth sports
LAS VEGAS, NV — Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced that he will be issuing an Emergency Directive lifting restrictions on youth and adult sports and adjusting the COVID-19 statewide guidance on sports.
The new Directive and accompanying guidance will allow for practice, training and competitions for non-contact and minimal-contact sports statewide for both youth and adult sports. Sports leagues must first submit a Preparedness & Safety Plan and comply with all health and safety protocols outlined in the guidance, including strict adherence to social distancing, sanitization and capacity limitations on spectators at sporting events.
“As I have said before, sports are paramount to the mental and physical health, growth and development of leadership skills among our youth,” Governor Sisolak said. “We are enacting these new standards so that those who enjoy competing can begin safely returning to play.”
The Directive does not pertain to professional or collegiate sports, and it retains the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association’s (NIAA) existing authority over when high school sports will resume and the guidelines under which those competitions will resume. Not all sports will be allowed at this time – only minimal- and non-contact sports as defined in the
Directive may commence. The sports allowed have been categorized based on contact level and associated risk.
The full list of sports allowed to continue - and the accompanying guidance for this Directive – can be found at the following links:
• Nevada Guidance for Adult & Youth Sports
o COVID-19 Screening Guide - SPORTS (See document posted above)
o COVID-19 Screening Check In - SPORTS (See document posted above)
