COVID 19 – Safety Protocols for Silver Spring Lacrosse

The safety of our players, coaches, parents is our number one priority.  Below are guidelines (not limited to) that will be in place to help keep everyone as safe as possible while participating in practices/games/clinics.

Part One: CDC Guidelines:

  • Please be vigilant in preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus by practicing good hygiene as recommended by CDC guidelines. CDC guidelines can be found here:
  • Please stay home if you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or if you have been exposed to someone who has had signs or symptoms of COVID-19. Please see CDC guidelines for specific COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Coaches and players, please check your temperature prior to leaving for scheduled Silver Spring event. If your temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher, you are not permitted to participate in an Silver Spring activity for a minimum of 14 days.
  • As per the CDC: If you are immunocompromised, the best way to prevent COVID-19 is to avoid being exposed to the virus. We strongly urge you to consider the risk that you would be taking by participating in a group practice, as you will be putting your health at risk. Therefore, you may consider not participating in practices at this time.
