COVID-19 SOFTBALL GUIDE LINES

GUIDELINES FOR WESTWOOD YOUTH SOFTBALL

Umpires, Coaches, Players, and parents are strongly recommended to adhere to State of Massachusetts COVID19 regulations and guidance except when the ball is in play. These safety measures must be strictly adhered to by all players, coaches and spectators to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

For all divisions, the defensive team will supply the ball. For our Junior Division, coaches must remember to sanitize their hands before entering to coach pitch. Coaches must also wear a face covering while pitching.

No more than 25 players on any playing surface


No more than 100 people including participants, players, coaches, spectators, etc

Spectators must wear facial coverings AND maintain six feet of social distancing at all times

Face coverings are required when participants are not actively engaged in an activity (e.g. on the bench, in the dugout)

Coaches must wear facial coverings

No touch rule when the ball is not in play– players should refrain from high fives, fist bumps, handshake lines, and other physical contact with teammates, opposing players, coaches, umpires and fans.

Each player will have a designated personal space. Players can bring a chair or stand. Players will always be in these assigned spaces when they are not playing. 

Players will wear a facial covering in the dugout when unable to social distance.

Players must wear a facial covering when up at bat.


No spitting or eating seeds, gum, other similar products.

No team water coolers or shared drinking stations - players should bring labeled individual water containers.

Whenever possible, equipment and personal items should have proper separation and should not be shared. If equipment must be shared, proper sanitation should be administered between users.

Each team will have its own set of game balls to be used only when that team is in the field.

Each team will be equipped with two/three sets of catching gear. Face masks should be sprayed with disinfectant after every use.

Parents are encouraged to supply their child with their own hand sanitizer.
