COVID-19 Considerations

As player safety is the primary consideration we encourage all volunteers and players to be vaccinated.

Player Safety Guidelines

1. No player or volunteer should participate in a practice or game if they are not feeling well
2. All players and volunteers may wear soft fabric masks during practices and games
3. All spectators should maintain a 6 foot distance from the field and players during games
4. There is no requirement for teams to shake hands or have sportsmanship contact with players or volunteers before, during or after the game. Any such contact must be based on agreement from both parties.
5. A coin toss is optional and referee may choose to have visiting team select starting side and home team kick-off
