There are certain segments of the population who are at an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 including individuals who are 65 years of age or older, those with heart, lung, kidney, or liver disease, those with diabetes, and those with immunodeficiencies. These individuals should not attend Next Level Lacrosse programs this summer.
If You are Sick
If you are sick on the day of a program (e.g., sneezing, coughing, sniffles, have a fever, or don’t feel well), please do not attend the program. Anyone repeatedly sneezing or coughing may be asked to immediately leave the premises. Those returning from a country with ongoing COVID-19 infections should monitor their health and follow the instructions from public health officials.
Water will not be made available at each field. Athletes, spectators, and coaches will be responsible for bringing their own water bottles. Water bottles should not be shared between individuals.
Social Distancing Measures
Social distancing means that individuals maintain a distance of at least six feet from one another. Six feet is approximately the distance that virus droplets can travel when an individual sneezes or coughs.
All players, coaches, staff, and spectators should practice social distancing of six feet when feasible – particularly in common areas. All spectators on the sidelines must sit or stand at least six feet apart from one another. To lessen the number of people at the field, only one parent/guardian per player may attend the clinic. Players and coaches must refrain from handshakes, high fives, fist/elbow bumps, chest bumps, or any group celebrations.
There will be no access to restrooms.
Personal Protective Equipment
All Next Level Staff will have PPE such as face masks and gloves. All attendees including staff, coaches, and spectators must have a face mask with them. Face masks must be worn when in communal settings and when in close proximity to others. All attendees will be responsible for bringing their own facemask. A guide for making your own facemask at home can be found HERE.
*This does not include players while playing or coaches when officiating a game.
Everyday Preventive Actions
All attendees should practice everyday preventive actions – including, but not limited to:
*Washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
*Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) if soap and water are not available
*Abstain from touching their face (mouth, eyes, or nose)
*Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw tissue in the trash or use the inside of your elbow
*Avoid touching frequently touched surfaces (railings, doorknobs, countertops etc…)
