2020-2021 Lacrosse Covid-19 Guidelines
All Players must wear masks when entering and exiting fields of play and maintain social distance at all times before and after the games. All players/parents must sign the Covid Waiver before their first game and turn in to the Field Commissioner.
All players will be required to have their temperature checked (forehead thermometer) before each game as they enter the field, so please arrive early to every game. Any player or coach or parent that is feeling sick or been exposed to Covid virus in the past 14 days is not allowed to play and must stay home.
During games, players do not have to wear masks but can if they want too and are highly encouraged to wear masks during competition and must maintain 6 ft distance when on the sidelines during games and avoiding contact as much as possible during games. We have reduced the number of players on the field during games to maintain spacing with limited contact as much as practical. Players can wear clear plastic shields over the helmet facemask or goggles if they want but must be attached very securely.

Considerations for Recreational Sports
During times of substantial COVID-19 activity VDH strongly advises athletes to wear masks at all times during group training, competition, and on the sidelines.
All coaches need to wear masks at all times and maintain social distance from players and parents. All coaches will be required to have their temperature checked (forehead thermometer) before each game.
All Referees need to wear masks before and after games and maintain social distance from players and coaches as best they can during the games. Refs do not need to wear masks during games in order to blow whistles, but can if they want to. All Refs will be required to have their temperature checked (forehead thermometer) before their first game.
NO SPECTATORS ALLOWED INSIDE THE TRACK FENCE AT MCLEAN HS.
Only one parent is allowed to attend and watch the Box games (no siblings or dogs) from the bleacher/stands outside the Track fence, no exceptions, and must social distance from the other parents at all times. All parents must be wearing masks at all times!
Hand sanitizer will be available at each scorer’s table. Players must bring and use only their own water bottles.
After games, only team cheers allowed, no player hand shakes or elbows or sticks. No high-fives or chest bumps after goals.
After games and a team cheer, coaches and players must exit the facility right away and meet parents/guardians outside the Track fence and not congregate by the entrances or in big groups.
We expect to see County Officials at our weekend games so we need everyone’s cooperation with these guidelines or the County will revoke our Field Permit and no allow us to offer this great outdoor Lacrosse opportunity.
