Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we are taking additional steps to protect participants and carry out our mission in a responsible and thoughtful manner. We are committed to minimizing any exposure to or transmission of COVID-19. We will adhere to national, state, and local guidelines. To do so, we need total cooperation from parents and players. Below you will see some of the steps we are taking, and also what we are asking of parents and players. As this pandemic continues to evolve, and as additional information or guidance becomes available, these guidelines may be updated. Please carefully review these guidelines – the greatest WIN we can all achieve is staying healthy and defeating COVID-19.
