  • Organized youth or adult recreational sports leagues in groups of up to 50 players, excluding coaches and referees/umpires, are permitted.

**Some counties are only 25 players

  • Spectators, like parents, are permitted for youth sports, so long as members from different households maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from each other.
  • Maintain contact information and team rosters and be prepared to support local public health contact tracing efforts if exposures occur. 
  • Do not share snacks or water, except in emergency situations.
  • Games that require extensive travel are strongly discouraged.
  • Practice social distancing of 6 feet from other households during drop off/pick up of players.
  • Masks are encouraged where feasible (i.e. by coaches, by spectators)
  • Temperature checks are encouraged before practices and games
  • Face Shields/Splash shields are encouraged for every player.

 

 

Participants

  • Continue to physically distance, staying at least 6 feet from members of other households.
  • Stay home other than getting  tested if you are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Avoid recreating in public spaces if anyone in your household is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Encouraged to wear a mask while recreating.  Abide by local health department orders.
  • Bring hand sanitizer to clean hands when soap and water is not available.

 

 

Player/Coach testing positive for COVID during the 2020 season.  

The AYL Football Policy is:

  • Should a Player/Coach test positive they are to be are to be in quarantined for 14 days and return only after a receiving a negative test
  • Team Coach will inform team (without naming child) that there was a player/coach that tested positive so Parents can be aware of the potential exposure
  • AYL Board will not assume the balance of the players have been exposed since there is no way to determine where the child did get exposed.  Thus the team can continue to practice/play as scheduled and does not need to quarantine.
  • Parents will continue to be responsible to watch over their child for any symptoms and should stay home if the child is sick.
  • Parents always have the right to decide if their child will continue to participate or not

A BETTER SAFER GAME

Last year, USA Football completed a two year study that determined actual facts surrounding injuries associated with youth football.  This year, USA Football continued their study by evaluating the impact of the USA Football's Heads Up Football program on youth football injuries.  The results are amazing - this independent study found a 76% reduction in injuries for leagues participating in the USA Football program vs. leagues that do not take part in the program.  This year's study by the Datalys Center involved over 2,100 players, ages 5-15, across 100 teams and 10 youth organizations spanning four states.  The number of players from leagues committed to using USA Football's Heads Up Program were over 1,400 players while those players from leagues not using the Heads Up Program were just over 700 players.  The two-to-one difference in players using the Heads Up Program vs. players from leagues that did not use the Program was used to balance its youth football safety surveillance data for the 2012-13 study.

Some additional important results from the study are as follows:

Players in Heads Up Football leagues were 57% less likely to sustain a time-loss injury, while more than 90% of youth players in Heads Up Football leagues did not sustain an injury in games or practices during the 2014 season.

In three years of research (2012-2014) encompassing more than 6,000 players ranging in age 5-15, only 2.8 percent of all players had sustained a concussion.  Bruises were the most common injuries reported (27% of all injuries), followed by ligament sprains (22% of all injuries).

As many of you already know the CCYS Bruins and the AYL are total committed to making football a "Better Safer Game."
