In order to resume play, there are some specific Return to Play Safety Protocols we'll all be required to follow. Highlights are below:

Practices are limited to 1.5 hours

  • Check-in and symptom screening for everybody before each practice. 
  • No spectators. Essential personnel only. 
  • Coaches and managers wear face coverings all the time; kids wear them at minimum when on the sidelines and on breaks
  • No contact, close drills, scrimmages or anything that brings kids closer than 6 feet

Participants are required to carefully read, agree to, and acknowledge that parents/guardians and players understand all aspects of the protocols. and to sign a COVID-19 specific waiver. Click on the links below to take care of those tasks:
