Plans for 2021 Season

The DLYLA board met on November 24 to discuss plans for the spring 2021 season. We have set up tentative plans for boys and girls programs that fully incorporate Covid-19 precautions. This is based in part on feedback from our recent survey to parents. Thanks to the over 70 families who participated in the recent survey.

Covid-19 precautions: Recognizing concerns over Covid-19, the board will implement precautions recommended by CDC (see: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/youth-sports.html) and U.S. Lacrosse (see: https://www.uslacrosse.org/return-to-play) as follows:

  • Players or parents feeling ill should stay at home, seek the appropriate medical attention and not attend games or practices
  • Players and coaches shall have their temperature measured upon arrival at practice/game. Those measured at 100.3 degrees or higher shall not enter the practice/game area.
  • Social distancing of 6 ft or greater shall be employed during drills and group briefings
  • Face masks are required for staff, coaches, and designated adults serving as hygiene support for all practices and activities. Parents/fans are encouraged to wear masks at all practices/games.
  • Athletes must wear a facemask while on sidelines and during coach briefings. Players may wear a face mask during lacrosse activity.
  • Face coverings should cover nose and mouth. 
  • Players arriving at field should be dressed in equipment and uniform. No bags or other items, with the exception of water bottle may be brought into the practice/game area
  • Players should bring their own water bottle marked clearly with their name.
  • No water bottles shall be shared.
  • No equipment shall be shared
  • No handshakes, high fives, fist pumps, chest bumps, huddles, group celebrations, spitting, etc.
  • No pre or post game handshakes between players, coaches & officials – teams should continue to show good sportsmanship by clapping or cheering for the opposition team
  • All players & teams are advised to sanitize equipment regularly and carry & use hand sanitizer

Girls and boys programs (ages 14U, 11U). Tentative plans have been made to participate in separate programs for boys and girls. Each program will feature games at a single location during the season. Details on practice times and locations are not available because of issues with field availability. Registration fee of $160 will include a custom neck gaiter for Covid-19 protection. Players registered and paid for the spring 2020 season will be credited with registration fees for spring 2021 season.
