The Guidelines for Red Raider Lacrosse Club, LLC Training
In order to make this a possibility and to make it safe for all of our families we have created a list of non-negotiables. Please know this is our heartfelt attempt to be smart and safe as we learn more from experts on best practice for doing so. Playing is currently a privilege and we are doing our part in respecting it so we can have more of it.
No player will be allowed on the field without a signed Red Raider Lacrosse Club, LLC release waiver form which has been provided via email.
Have you travelled to anywhere that NYS requires a 14-day quarantine upon arrival in NYS in the last 14 days? (Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Nevada, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah)
Players should come dressed and ready to go to practice when stepping out of the car. NO BAGS, or extra gear should be brought to the practice fields. Players will be assigned to their field where they will remain for the entire practice. Coaches will be present to meet the players. All of our coaches will be required to wear masks, especially when in-close instruction is needed.
We are asking parents to take your sons Temperature before each session.
All players and coaches will be required to fill out the COVID-19 Athlete/Coach Monitoring Form
before each session starts. See attached form for the questions.
Players should bring an adequate amount of water with them to practice – there will be NO refilling stations and NO sharing of water amongst the players. We ask that every player in attendance brings a reusable water bottle, and not a single use bottle of water. This will prevent waste, which trash collection becomes a far riskier proposition. Water should be spaced out 6-10 feet from one another as to avoid contact. Look to the coaches for proper guidance on where to put your water bottle upon entry to the field. Anytime a player is not on the practice field, he should be practicing the social distancing guidelines of 6ft or more.
Parents/ Chaperones/ Drivers must stay in cars and not enter field space. Only players participating are allowed on the playing field. It will be a “Drop Off “– “Pick Up” style.
Balls may NOT be touched by any player with their hands at any time. Your stick is the only way you are allowed to pick up the ball.
Only ONE player will be allowed in the net at any point when ball hunting. Other players will be responsible for rolling the balls back to the goal or to the area where the balls will go for the next drill.
Players must be aware of each other and move in unison as to maintain the proper distance. Bathroom breaks must be coordinated as well, with only 1 person going to use at a time, if available.
Upon entering and exiting the field, we will have hand sanitizer provided and we ask that everyone sterilize their hands before re-entering their car.
“No Touch” Rule – players and coaches should refrain from high fives, handshake lines, and other physical contact with teammates, opposing players, coaches, officials and fans. Players should also refrain from touching any lacrosse ball with their hands and only use sticks to pick up balls.
All Players, Coaches are to conduct symptom assessment self-evaluation and if experiencing any symptoms must stay home. *Per CDC, symptoms include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headaches, and new loss of taste or smell*
WE APPRECIATE YOUR ADHERENCE TO THESE STRICT GUIDELINES FOR THE HEALTH, SAFETY, AND ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE FOR ALL!!!
