Soccer Quebec has confirmed that the measures recently announced by the government will allow games and activities with contact for all participants of all ages and from all over Quebec. The nature of contacts in soccer, which are short and sporadic, makes it possible to play games.
“Our players will be delighted by this wonderful news! This announcement means that not only can we start playing games, but also that our young players aged 4 to 6 will be able to start playing on the province's soccer fields, ”said Soccer Quebec general manager Mathieu Chamberland.
Several health and sanitation measures will also remain in effect, such as washing hands before participating in activities, using a personal bottle of water, players distancing while sitting on the bench and banning handshakes before and after games.
