In order to play the 2021 lacrosse season, the following protocols must be followed by coaches, players, and parents:
1 All players will wear masks when they come to and from the fields and while on the bench. Masks will not be required during the flow of the game.
2 Players will do their best to socially distance (while masked) on the benches by maintaining a minimum of three feet distance, as feasible.
3 Players will supply their own water bottles. Water bottles are not to be shared under any circumstances.
4 Players will not share equipment.
5 Players will not attend team functions if they have any symptoms on the COVID checklist.
