JSSL Singapore – Covid-19 Precautions & Protocol Update March 17, 2020

In light of the evolving situation of the Coronavirus around the globe, and in-line with MOH guidelines, JSSL Singapore has introduced the following updated measures for all JSSL training sessions at all JSSL venues:

  1. Regular trainings will continue at all JSSL’s training venues at normal times.
  2. Training sessions will be held behind “closed doors” with now parents attending or watching:
    • save for the u3 to u8 children’s age groups
    • for the u3 to u8 children we would request only 1 parent attend
  3. Parents are requested to drop off and pick up their children and NOT stay and watch the training sessions unless 100% necessary for medical reasons.
  4. All coaches, staff, players, officials and any parents who do stay and watch, will have their temperatures checked at all JSSL training venues prior to training sessions.
  5. Players, coaches and parents are to proceed to the JSSL registration/information tents at each venue to have their temperature checked before they start their session, practice, game or warm up, and will receive a sticker showing their temperature. The sticker must be worn on their t-shirt at all times.
  6. Any individual with a temperature of 37.5 or above will be sent home and are encouraged to visit their local GP.
  7. We strongly encourage all parent/guardians to perform temperature checks at home prior to coming to their sessions or games.
  8. All coaches will check their players stickers before the sessions to ensure that their temperatures have been taken.
  9. Coaches will split their training groups in smaller groups from the start of the session.
  10. In line with MOH guidelines, any player and or parent who has returned from the countries listed below, commencing Monday 16th March at 11pm, must remain at home for 14 days from the date of entry into Singapore, and cannot attend the JSSL Leagues.
    • In addition, if the traveling person is staying in the same household as a League player – we request that the player also remain absent from the JSSL Leagues for a 14 day period.
    • mainland China, South Korea, Iran, Italy, France, Spain and Germany
    • Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam
    • Japan, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

With school holidays approaching and many travel restrictions in place, and many new cases seeming to be imported from abroad, it may be best and prudent to remain at home rather than travel at this time.

Our goal is to create a safe and secure environment for our children to be active in. Just like schools are acting, these measures would be best served at this time without parents in the venues.

We appreciate everyone’s support and we hope that all parents can cooperate with these steps as we look to enhance our safety measures.

Kindly note that we ask all parents to be socially responsible and keep their children at home if they are unwell.
