Westside soccer's #1 priority is the health and safety of our participants.  In response to the recent large increase in COVID cases, deaths and hospitalizations, we are changing our face covering policy effective Monday 8/30/2021.  The new policy is:


At all Westside team practices, players are required to wear a face covering at all times, regardless of vaccination status.

At Westside Micro games (Kinder and 1st grade), players are required to wear a face covering at all times.

At league games for Grades 2 through High School, we will use the league mask policy that masks are strongly recommended, but not required when players are playing on the field (see below).  Players on the sidelines are required to wear a mask.

Coaches are required to wear a face covering at all times during both practices and games, regardless of vaccination status.

Spectators are required to either wear a face covering or maintain 6 feet of distance, regardless of vaccination status.

All participants are allowed to remove their mask to eat or drink.  Please maintain 6 feet of distancing when you are eating or drinking.

THJSL mask policy

For the fall 2021 season, THJSL and it's member clubs will follow OHA guidance that masks are strongly recommended for unvaccinated or at-risk individuals in outdoor crowded areas.  All youth soccer games qualify as an outdoor crowded area.  Exact text and web link below  Thank you for your cooperation.

The Oregon Health Authority strongly recommends that: 

• In outdoor crowded areas or large gatherings, individuals who are unvaccinated or who are at risk for severe COVID-19 disease continue to wear a mask or face covering and maintain physical distancing of at least six (6) feet from other individuals. Crowded areas and large gatherings of individuals include but are not limited to venues, event areas, sports events, fairs, festivals, parades, graduation ceremonies or wedding receptions.
