Security hired to watch B.C. parents angered by COVID rules at youth soccer games

BY , Oct 28, 2020 11:18 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Parents of a youth soccer club in Chilliwack are being warned they face expulsion from the club or their children could be banned from practices or games if families violate COVID-19 rules.

The warning is posted on the Chilliwack FC website after what the club's chair describes as borderline violent confrontations between some parents, volunteers and club officials.

Andrea Laycock says the club must enforce provincial regulations on the number of spectators and players at a game but some parents are so upset that they have created potential ``violence in the workplace'' issues.

Laycock says a security firm has been hired to patrol the sidelines of the club's games and ensure parents are complying with the rules.
