I attest that I and my parties will be follow the CDC guidelines and will do all that we can to keep everyone safe during this time. 

We have provided CDC key terms below:

The CDC does encourage social distancing in youth sports programs, if feasible. There are several strategies for this. For instance, programs can:

  • Encourage players to wait in their cars with guardians as feasible until just before the beginning of a practice, warm-up, or game, instead of forming a group. Never leave children in a parked car and follow CDC’s Tips for Preventing Heat-Related Illness to keep children safe.

  • Increase the size of the practice field or court.

  • Create physical distance between players when explaining drills or the rules of the game.

  • Provide physical guides, such as signs, paint and tape on floors or playing fields.

  • Space players at least 6 feet apart on the field, when possible, while participating in the sport (such as during warmup, skill building activities and simulation drills).

  • If keeping physical distance is difficult with players in competition or group practice, consider relying on individual skill work and drills.

  • Discourage unnecessary physical contact, such as high fives, handshakes, fist bumps, or hugs.

Older youth might be better able to follow directions for social distancing, while younger players may need reminders. Youth sports programs may ask parents or other household members to monitor their children and make sure that they remain at least 6 feet away from others outside their household and take other protective actions (for example, younger children could sit with parents or caregivers instead of in a dugout or group area).

You can also institute strategies during gameplay that may reduce contact between players. For example, consider banning defensive walls in soccer during free kicks, work with the opposing team to substitute cohorts together to ensure that the same players are on the field at the same time, or limit the number of scrums in rugby.

For a full list of strategies, refer to CDC’s considerations for Youth Sports.

Youth sports leagues and teams should communicate with players and families about the importance of social distancing, wearing cloth face coverings, and other protective measures they can take before they attend group events, such as games, competitions, or social gatherings.

 

Youth sports organizations should also limit any non-essential visitors, spectators, volunteers, and activities involving external groups or organizations as much as possible – especially with individuals not from the local geographic area (e.g., community, town, city, or county).

During times when players are not actively participating in practice or competition, encourage social distancing by increasing space between players on the sideline, dugout, or bench.

Consider posting signs or visual cues on the ground or walls to indicate appropriate spacing distance.

 

Additionally, coaches can encourage athletes to use downtime for individual skill-building work or cardiovascular conditioning, rather than staying clustered together.

We appreciate your understanding and your willingness to help us keep everyone safe by following these guidelines.
