Season Resumption Guide - Play

If your league leadership has been able to prepare and confirm that your league’s activities adhere to the guidelines set forth by the state and local government and health officials in terms of public gatherings and sporting events when determining when it is safe to return to normal activities, here are some best operating practices for resuming play in your community.

As we work together to provide the most opportunities to as many children as we can, in a healthy and appropriate manner, it’s important to be flexible with what your league offers. Each opportunity is going to be dependent on state and local guidance, and your league should try to adapt its offerings to fit those guidelines.

In the event that your league and/or community experiences a COVID-19 outbreak and/or is connected to a positive COVID-19 diagnosis of one of your participants, visit for additional information.
