Arlington Youth Baseball and Softball Covid-19 Compliance Guidelines

Spring 2021

 

 

AYBSA is taking all necessary steps to ensure a safe and fun environment for our kids this spring, especially with regards to state guidance and orders relative to the state’s COVID-19 safety and reopening plans.

Currently, Massachusetts remains in Phase IV, Step 1 of the state’s reopening plan and the following guidelines are in effect for all player activities (e.g. practices and games) organized by AYBSA. We will continue to closely monitor all updates and revisions to the reopening plan and adapt according to any and all subsequent modifications.

 

Masks:

  • Players are required to wear masks at all times.
  • Coaches, and umpires must wear a mask at all times.

 

Dugouts:

  • All players should maintain 6ft social distancing including while in the dugouts.
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided and must be applied at the beginning and at the ending of every practice or game.

 

No Touch Rule:

  • Players should refrain from high fives, handshake lines and other physical contact with teammates, opposing players, coaches, umpires and fans.
  • A “tip the cap” can be used following the game instead of the handshake line.

 

Spectators:

  • All spectators are required to follow the Massachusetts outdoor protocols.
  • Masks are required.
  • Spectators from different households should maintain 6ft social distancing.

 

COVID-19 Symptoms or Known Cases:

  • If any player or coach experiences symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of a AYBSA activity, the player should inform his / her coach and the league’s director before returning to any AYBSA activity.
  • If any player or coach has a known exposure to COVID-19 or tests positive for COVID-19, the individual should inform his/her coach and the league’s director before returning to any AYBSA activity.
