Masks with one-way valves may not be used.
    • Players must be given a break from exercise if any difficulty breathing is noted.

    • Players must stay within a stable cohort (same group of students, no interaction with other students). Each cohort should be no more than 10 players and 2 coaches. 
    • For contact tracing purposes, coaches must maintain a daily attendance log of which players and coaches are present and interacting with each cohort. All individuals who interacted with each cohort must be clearly indicated.
    • Each cohort must be supervised by an adult coach. Coaches may not supervise more than one cohort at a time.
    • In the case of a coach or player becoming ill or being exposed to COVID-19 or COVID-19 like symptoms, the District COVID-19 Response Team will determine which cohorts of players need to be sent home to self-quarantine and/or be tested for COVID-19.

    • Practice among players of same team are allowed for non-contact sports only and must maintain physical distancing (singles tennis, golf, some track and field for example).
    • Seating has been reconfigured to create space for players and coaches to maintain physical distancing.
    • Players cannot share equipment except in limited circumstances (kicking a soccer ball back and forth, throwing a ball to each other) and this can only be done in designated pairs within the cohort.
    • Equipment must be disinfected between use by different people.
    • No unnecessary physical contact (high-fives, handshakes, fist bumps, etc.).
    • Indoor facilities (bathrooms) may only be used for hand hygiene, changing, and utilizing the rest room. Facilities are to be supervised and access staggered to allow for physical distancing. Masks must be worn at all times inside the facilities.
