As restrictions nationwide are gradually lifted – and the pursuit of a new normal is under way – one of the most pressing questions is how youth sports can safely return in our communities.
In the coming weeks young athletes in several states will be back on the field, but how those practices will work and look, and whether games can be played while protecting all those involved remains to be seen.
On Friday, May 22, at 4 pm EST, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is conducting a webinar for youth sports stakeholders. (REGISTRATION LINK)
The National Alliance for Youth Sports recommends that all groups follow the guidelines set by the CDC while making programming decisions, as well as your state’s public health department.
Protecting our young athletes, as well as volunteer coaches, parents, officials and staff who conduct the programs is of utmost importance, as we all understand the challenges tied to group settings.
Below are links to the CDC, leading health and sport organizations, and various resources to assist with your decision making – and we encourage the careful review of their recommendations:
