COVID-19

Tempest Lacrosse is committed to the healthy and safety of all players and participants.  In accordance with local government and state regulations, Tempest Lacrosse has developed COVID-19 protocols for tryouts, practices and clinics.  Protocols will be reviewed as additional guidance is released and will be updated to reflect the most up-to-date sector-specific requirements.  If you have questions, please contact us. 

TRYOUT PROTOCOLS

1. Waivers must be signed by all players before participation will be allowed. Players may bring signed waiver with them to the tryouts or sign one upon registration online.

2. All players to check-in at the tent and table when arriving to tryouts. Maintain 3’-0” between you and the player in front of you. Hand sanitizer will need to be used and temperature taken. Temperatures over 100 will be required to leave the tryout area. A make-up tryout will be available if needed.

3. After players check-in and are cleared to participate, they must remain at their “gear cone” until the tryout begins. Cones will be placed 8’-0” apart.

 

4. Players are expected to do self-symptom checks before arriving at tryouts. Any player that does not feel well should stay home. A make-up tryout will be available if needed.
