Additional Safety Precautions

  • All participants and staff must follow the CDC good hygiene practices:
    • Use hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, or no-rinse soap.
    • Avoid touching your face.
    • Sneeze or cough into a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
  • Athletes, organizers, and coaches will NOT participate if they feel under the weather, sick, or have come in contact with someone that may be sick.
    • All close contacts1 of a known COVID-positive person “will be removed from the event regardless of vaccination status.” 
  • We will have an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) and handwashing stations for all participants to use regularly throughout the event.
  • All players, coaches, and spectators should practice social distancing of 6 ft. wherever possible and activities that are not conducive to the required 6 feet of physical distancing will be limited throughout the day. 
  • We request that players space equipment accordingly to prevent close contact.
  • No Handshakes or group celebrations and spirit circles
We will be following USAU's new mask protocols they recently issued which states that all on-field participants (e.g., players, coaches, observers) will be provided with the option to report their vaccination status as part of the event registration process (or testing status) and the state guidelines that states that any individual, age eleven (11) and older, who is not fully vaccinated, is encouraged to wear a medical or non-medical cloth face covering that covers the nose and mouth when entering or within an indoor space where members of different households are present or in circumstances when six feet of distance cannot be maintained or whenever in an enclosed space (e.g., restrooms, tents). **

a. On-field participants who provide proof of completed vaccination (i.e., two weeks after final dose) will not be required to wear a mask on the field of play, unless otherwise required by state or local regulations.

b. On-field participants who submit proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test will not be required to wear a mask on the field of play, unless otherwise required by state or local regulations. The test must have been performed within 72 hours of the start of the event and submitted prior to participation.

c. On-field participants who do not meet the criteria in 2a or 2b above may participate provided they wear a mask when on the field.
 
The option to provide proof of complete vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test will be a part of each player's USAU membership profile and we will be checking registration via the USAU event rosters of participating teams and individuals. Players and/or teams that don’t comply with these or other event rules are subject to removal from the event.
