COVID-19 Update

Return to play on January 4th! 

Athlete and Coach Masking: 

This section is copied directly from the COVID-19 Sports Practice Guidance for Youth and Adults and will be updated as there are changes from the Governor’s executive orders.

• “Face coverings must be worn by all persons at all times, including practices and, when allowed, games.” It is important to note that the only exceptions allowed are for wrestling and water sports.

• “Face coverings must be worn in accordance with MDH guidance and Executive Order 20-81.

  •  Types of face coverings can include a cloth mask, a neck gaiter, a scarf, a bandanna, or a religious face covering. CDC recommends using two layers of fabric when making a cloth face covering. Face coverings that are made of thinner single-layer fabric such as certain types of masks, scarves, neck gaiters, or bandannas may not be as effective for blocking droplets that come out when speaking, coughing, or sneezing and should not be used unless there are no alternatives
  •  A face covering must cover the nose and mouth completely. The covering should not be overly tight or restrictive and should feel comfortable to wear. 
  •  Any masks that incorporate a valve that is designed to facilitate easy exhaling, mesh masks, or masks with openings, holes, visible gaps in the design or material, or vents are not sufficient face coverings because they allow droplets to be released from the mask.  
  • Face Coverings Requirements and Recommendations under Executive Order 20-81
  • People are not permitted to remove their face coverings during activities that involve a high level of exertion.” If you have an exemption for wearing a face-covering due to a disability, medical, or mental health condition, you must provide a doctor’s note to your coach.
