We are excited to finally be able to play some lacrosse. We realize that some of you may not be able to attend but we had enough interest based on our survey that we wanted to offer something. We are asking that even if you can only attend one, please still register online.
The schedule for each team is at the bottom of this email. Girls will practice at Bruce Park and boys will practice at Sullivan Field.
We will do our best to keep the environment safe for the kids. Although the risk level for them is very low, we can never fully guarantee that there is zero risk.
Our coaches will have masks to wear and will have them on whenever they are within 6' of a kid. If they plan on yelling or speaking loud, the mask will be on if they are within 12' of a kid.
Our coaches will self assess and take their temperature before each practice. If they have any symptoms of any illness, they will stay home. We encourage each player to be assessed prior to coming as well including temperature check.
Masks are not required for the kids, but if you are more comfortable having your kid wear one, please do so.
We will keep the kids as spread as possible throughout the drills, but the state's guidelines do allow for normal play of the sport within the drills so there will be contact. I don't want this to be a surprise to anyone prior to the first practice.
In between drills (getting water, getting dressed before and after practices) we will do our best to keep them separated. Our huddles will be spread out, our stretching and other drills will be spread whenever possible.
Our coaches will not pick up a ball with a bare hand if at all possible.
Please start prepping your kids with some of the distancing expectations that they'll have at practices. We understand they'll be excited, but if they know the rules ahead of time it will help.
If for any reason you feel uncomfortable with the situation, you can pull your kid out. No questions will be asked. We are in a crazy time right now and everyone handles things differently.
Attached is a Covid-19 waiver as well as our general waiver. We will need you to sign and bring both to practice on Monday or your kid cannot participate.
We have also attached our Return to Play Guidelines.
