Gainesville Youth Lacrosse will follow the CDC’s guidelines, US Lacrosse, and local guidelines for youth sports. There are several recommendations we will be following to keep participants and spectators safe.
Screen yourself and any participating child for symptoms before coming to field/facilities with the following questions:
Have you or the child been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19?
Are you or the child experiencing a cough, shortness of breath or sore throat?
Have you or the child had a fever in the last 48 hours?
Have you or the child experienced a new loss of taste or smell?
Have you or the child experienced vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours?
Parents need to screen participants for a fever of no higher than 100.4.
Anyone who exhibits COVID-19 symptoms (answers yes to any of the screening questions or who is running a fever) should leave the sporting event immediately, or not go to it, and seek medical care or COVID-19 testing or both.
Increase hygiene practices: wash hands frequently, avoid touching your face; practice proper etiquette when coughing or sneezing.
Players should arrive to the field dressed with protective gear on and ready to play
Must not share equipment, towels, or water bottles
Players are highly encouraged not to touch their mouthguard once it has been placed in their mouth and to sanitize their hands after it has been touched
No-touch rule: Players should refrain from high fives, handshake lines, and other physical contact with teammates, opposing players, coaches, etc.
