Summer Lacrosse Clinic Starting!
Massachusetts began Phase 2 of its re-opening on June 8th, and Phase 2 allows youth sports to start.  After reviewing the guidance provided by the State of Massachusetts, the City of Medford Board of Health, and the MBYLL, as well as consulting with many of our lax parents, Medford Youth Lacrosse has decided that the Lacrosse Clinic will be held from Tuesday, June 23rd to Thursday, July 30th.  Practices will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7 pm up at Edgerly Field  behind Medford High School.
 
As excited as we are for the opportunity to play lacrosse again, please note that we have a list of strict rules and restrictions (listed below) that we will abide by to ensure safety for everyone. We will embark on a "new normal" where parents, spectators and coaches need to wear masks -- this is non-negotiable.  Note: players will not have to wear a mask.  We anticipate things will continue to fluctuate, and we will closely follow any changes in guidance by the state, city, and MBYLL.
 
We still have a few spots open for interested kids who have just graduated from 1st-4th grade. Go to Online Registration on the left of this page. 
Equipment required: helmet, gloves and lacrosse stick.  Total cost: $140 ($100 to play in the clinic, $40 for MBYLL registration).  Any questions, please contact us at  .

Return to Play Rules

We have received guidance from the Medford Board of Health, the State of Massachusetts, and the MBYLL on what rules we need to operate under to keep everyone safe while returning to play. Those rules are attached below.

Please read through all the rules and familiarize yourself with them

We will be designing drills that allow us to work on the fundamentals of lacrosse while abiding by the distancing rules.

The fields at MHS opened June 8th, and we will be starting our clinic on June 23rd. 

==============================================

Players and Coaches: To participate or attend, organizers should ensure that participants, volunteers, coaches and spectators must show no signs or symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days. Current list of symptoms is available here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptomstesting/symptoms.html 

High Risk Population: Players, coaches, volunteers, parents/guardians in high risk categories should not participate or attend organized sports activities. List of high-risk categories available here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/people-at-higherrisk.html

Stay Home When Appropriate: Players, staff, parents/guardians, and spectators should stay home when they are showing signs of COVID-19, have a temperature, or have had close contact with a person with COVID-19.

Groupings On Fields: Programs must separate participants into groups of no more than 10, including coaches and staff. Larger playing areas and surfaces, such as athletic fields, tracks, tennis courts, and fullsize basketball courts, may be used by more than one group of 10 at one time, provided that adequate social distance and group separation can be maintained. To ensure group separation, groups must be spaced at least 20 feet apart while sharing a playing surface or field. (Massachusetts Youth Sports Re-Opening Guidelines)

Before Practice: Team staff should wipe down and sanitize any sideline seating areas. Ensure that athletes arrive dressed for practice.
 
After Practice: After practice, the team staff should remove and dispose of all trash. Players must leave immediately after practice: no recreational play or loitering is allowed, and any locker rooms must remain closed. Teams completing practice should not stay to watch other practices before or after their practice session.

Social Distancing (Players): Limited sports activity is allowed for players; players must maintain 6 feet of distance at all times and there should be no contact between players. If maintaining physical distance is difficult or impossible because of the nature of the sport, coaches should limit players to workouts, aerobic conditioning, individual skill work, and drills. (Massachusetts Youth Sports Re-Opening Guidelines)

Social Distancing (Coaches/Parents): All coaches, parents/guardians and spectators not of the same household should practice social distancing of 6 ft. whenever possible.

Face Coverings – Players: Players may remove face coverings while participating in practice and drills, provided they are able to maintain at least 6 feet of distance from all other persons present.

Face Coverings - Coaches: Face coverings should be worn by coaches, volunteers, other staff, officials, youth chaperones, and spectators in accordance with MA guidelines to prevent against the transmission of COVID-19 throughout the duration of the activity.
 
Face Coverings – Parents/Spectators: Spectators must be limited to ensure social distancing on the sidelines or other observation areas. Spectators should be limited to one adult chaperone per athlete. All spectators must wear face coverings.
 
No Contact: No Handshake Policy: Athletes should be discouraged from high fives, fist bumps or other social contact during practice.
 
Personal Hygiene: Staff, players, parents/guardians, and spectators should practice proper hygiene, wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol), abstain from touching their face (mouth, nose or eyes), refrain from spitting, and cover their cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw tissue in the trash. In addition as a back up, players and staff should carry their own hand sanitizer.
 
Player Equipment: Player provided equipment should be kept in a bag and should be spaced to encourage social distancing. Players should bring their own disinfectant wipes to wipe down their own equipment between use.

Food & Concessions: No shared food or drink may be provided during any activities for participants or spectators (e.g., concession stands or team snacks).  
 
Water/Drinks: No use of public water bubblers, fountains or bottle fillers if present on site. Participants and spectators should only drink from their own containers. Organizers must provide individual, dedicated water bottles for children if they do not have their own.
