AA COUNTY RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES

  • ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY REC & PARKS RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES
    Updated 8/7/2020

    Based guidance from Anne Arundel County Department of Health please find the updated Recreation and Parks guidelines for ‘Return to Play’ below. We are requesting cooperation from all and compliance to the current guidelines in an effort to make sure everyone will remain safe. Your cooperation will and communication of the guidelines to players and parents will allow the progress that has been made to continue.

    As practice and game play return, it is important that everyone continues to observe ALL social distancing guidelines.

    ● Coaches, players and spectators should wear a mask until they enter the field of play and follow physical distancing guidelines (6 feet away or more) whenever possible. In addition, coaches, players and spectators should adhere to the State Guidance on Sports Best Practices.

    ALL coaches and spectators must wear a mask.

    o When on the playing field players do not need to wear masks,  however when they return to the sidelines, if they cannot practice safe physical distance they should wear a mask. Players on the sidelines should be spaced out. Players should place their bags, water, etc. at a reasonable distance apart and return to their bag during breaks. Each player should remain at their bag until they return to the field or leave. It is very important that coaches reinforce this throughout the training sessions.

    ● When scheduling multiple teams on the same fields we recommend that you allow at least 30 minutes between the beginning and end of each practice.

    ● Players/coaches should avoid or limit contact, such as:
    o high fives, team huddles, arms around players, snacks, sharing water bottles/drinks, etc.

    When attending sporting events (practices, games, etc) there are to be NO tents other than those approved at the time of       scheduling.

    Tournaments/Sporting Events that were scheduled for July and August prior to COVID19 will be allowed to proceed as scheduled after JULY 1, 2020.

    o New or rescheduled events for July and August will be considered on a case by case basis.

    ● For more information on the Best Practices guidelines please go to: https://commerce.maryland.gov/Documents/BusinessResource/FAQs_Social%20Gatherings_final.pdf
