AA County Return to Play Guidelines


Updated 8/18/2020


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.


● Everybody must have a mask on when entering an athletic facility.


  • Participants (players/coaches) are not required to wear a mask when in the field of play. However, whenever possible it is recommended as safe physical distancing is suggested. 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.


  • Spectators must wear a mask at all times.


● 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:


  • 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 Medical tents. Beach / golf umbrellas are allowed


● New or rescheduled events for July and August will be considered on a case by case basis by the Recreation & Parks Department.
