COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC players returned to training this week in limited small group settings.

Players had to wear masks to practice, and get their temperatures taken before hitting the pitch.

While on the field, players had all the equipment wiped down after use.

The full-sided training moratoriums will now coincide with any potential adoption of a return to play model. While it's the United Soccer League's hope that a decision on resumption of play can be made in the coming weeks, all options remain on the table for the USL Championship.

Additional updates will be made available as soon as possible. In the meantime, we continue to extend our support and best wishes to all the individuals and communities who have been impacted by COVID-19.
