EDP Summer Classic 2020
8U-19U Boys & Girls |  July 25-26
Tuckahoe Turf Farms: Hammonton, NJ

EDP Soccer continued its Return To Play for the third consecutive weekend of tournament competition with the EDP Summer Classic. Tuckahoe Turf Farms in Hammonton, NJ was host to 9U-19U boys and girls teams, as many clubs continue to come back to competitive play. Following strict health and safety protocols, coaches and players were excited to be back on the field.

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. EDP Soccer also used a new field layout for the weekend, which created extra space between fields ensuring teams and spectators had the ability to distance themselves. Home teams and their supporters were positioned on one side of the field and away teams and their supporters on the other side to limit commingling of participants. In addition, home teams stayed on the same field for both of their games. This technique reduced the need for team movement across the facility.

“Our club has always looked to EDP for quality matches and competition, the Summer Classic was no different. As our teams have returned to play, EDP was our first choice coming out of the COVID-19 shutdown. Their safety protocols at the fields were well thought out and executed, they exceeded our expectations. They have put procedures in place from temp monitoring and seating arrangements to field layouts and group scheduling.  Great job by EDP looking out for the safety of our teams, parents and coaches.”
— Sandeep Mehtani, SJEB Rush Director

“The event ran very smoothly. The social distancing was maintained and a safe environment was created for the players, coaches and spectators. Being able to provide this event safely for the players has been huge and much appreciated.”
— Jordi Meijer, NJ Premier FC Director
