Game On Tip of The Week

Reduce physical closeness between players when possible. Maintain at least 6 feet between teammates, coaches, supporters, competitors, and officials while actively participating in the sport. Also try to avoid physical contact such as high fives, handshakes, fist bumps or hugs. Check out our new normal back to sports checklist for more information. 

Just so you know...

Families are ready to return to sports but with a new playbook: Parents expect mandatory temperature checks, locker room time to be eliminated and mandatory face masks as we as physical distancing enforced by staff.
