The South Whidbey Youth Soccer Club has suspended activities for a week after a player tested positive Friday for COVID-19.

The affected player was part of the girls U-14 group, and the family identified that the exposure likely came from “outside the soccer fields.”

The SWYSC board of trustees suspended practice Friday, then made the decision to go further with a shut-down.

“We have decided that the safest thing for us to do at this point is to halt the Academy for a week,” SWYSC said in an email sent to parents.

“We cannot be certain that exposure did not extend beyond the GU-14 group, so with a roughly 10-day break before we could be back on the field, families can take steps to make sure they are all safe and healthy.”

SWYSC hopes to extend play through the week of May 10-14, to make up for the missed week.

The board has been in contact with the Island County Health department, and has reviewed all CDC guidelines.

“This is an unfortunate situation, but we appreciate the understanding and support for our actions on Friday,” the email said.

Dr. Jo Moccia, the Superintendent for South Whidbey Schools, also addressed the matter in an email sent to parents in her district.

“The students in the impacted family have not participated in our hybrid program or attended SWSD in-person learning,” she said.

“The soccer club leadership assured us that all players followed protocol at practice and during games, so exposure is unlikely.”

South Whidbey schools require a daily wellness screening for all students and staff members coming on campus, and Moccia called on all to “please continue to practice all safety protocols.”
