EDP Soccer continued its Return To Play with its second weekend of tournaments this summer. The EDP Cup Spring and Central Jersey Invitational both took place at Tuckahoe Turf Farms in Hammonton, NJ over the weekend. Following strict health and safety protocols, teams played four games throughout the weekend of competition.


Innovative scheduling that included back to back game times also provided for important social distancing protocols and the ability for tournament operations staff to properly sanitize as needed between groups leaving and entering the facility. The EDP Soccer Operations Team and Medical Team monitored the heat index all weekend and water breaks were used to follow the US Soccer Heat Guidelines. EDP Soccer also used a new field layout for the weekend that created more space between fields that ensured teams and spectators had the ability to distance themselves.


“I spent the last two mornings at the Tuckahoe Turf Farms for the EDP Cup Spring 2020 Tournament. Great to see the kids back playing in a safe competitive environment. Protocols meant the teams stayed on opposing sides of the fields which gave the families peace of mind with regards to commingling with spectators from opposing teams. All players and coaching staff had their temperatures taken on entrance to the fields, parking was super convenient and the EDP on-site staff were as helpful as ever. Great way for all of the Wall Soccer Club players to get back to play after a very difficult time.”
— Michael Turtle, Wall SC Director


“I could not have been more impressed with how the EDP has organized their tournaments the past two weekends. The health and safety protocols were absolutely first class. We all as coaches are here to serve one thing, the players, and EDP could not have done a better job to help us get back on the field!”
— Luke Tyler, Deptford Premier FC Director
