FC Berna

Return to Play

FC Berna is excited we returned to on-field soccer activities!

The safety of our players, staff, and families is of the utmost importance to us.
We have planned for a controlled, careful, and gradual transition from our virtual to an on-field training environment.
We followed federal, state, local, and NJ Youth Soccer guidelines to bring a safe & phased return to play approach.

All FC Berna Legacy & Travel teams resumed on-field non-contact activities on Monday, June 22 or Tuesday, June 23, 2020.
We moved slowly through a progressive plan from June 22 through July 6, to introduce small-sided scrimmage games.
On July 6, we introduced full sided scrimmage games and following NJ Department of Health guidelines, permitted participation of our players in normal competitive matches.  

Winter 2020/2020 UPDATE: FC Berna remains committed to providing a safe environment for all of our players, coaches and family members.  We are continuing to monitor and review the potential of hosting any safe indoor soccer events during the January - February 2021 time period.  This would include the potential of hosting Futsal, Total Soccer, and indoor soccer training sessions for existing teams.  Please visit back our site in early December for additional details.  

Spring 2021 Update:
On Monday, May 17, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order No. 241, which eliminated the requirement to wear masks in outdoor spaces, including youth soccer activities. The order took effect immediately.  This announcement reflects the recent guidance from the Centers of Disease and Prevention (CDC).  Please note  the indoor mask mandate in public spaces remains in effect.

In addition, also on May 17, Gov. Murphy announced lifting the travel advisory. Travelers to New Jersey are no longer required to quarantine.  Please continue to follow local health and safety protocols when traveling and adhere to international travel guidance from the State Department and CDC.

Also, beginning on May 19, there will be no attendance limitations on outside gathering events, including youth soccer activities.

We understand the challenge this may pose for parents and, nonetheless, urge us all to adhere to these parameters that currently provide an opportunity for players to train and compete during this difficult time.
