Guidance for All Sports Permitted to Operate During the COVID-19 Disaster Emergency to Ensure the Safety and Health of Employees, Athletes and the Public
Issued June 10, 2020, last updated September 2, 2020
Recreational and Amateur Sports
Recreational and amateur sports organizations and teams (not affiliated with a public or private PK-12 school), including, but not limited to basketball, hockey, field hockey, football, soccer, swimming, baseball, softball, lacrosse, gymnastics, and kickball, are permitted to conduct in-person activities, including games and practices, if they strictly adhere to the requirements of this guidance, including the limits on total occupancy outlined below (25 or fewer people indoors, 250 or fewer outdoors).
The administration is, however, concerned that holding recreational and amateur sports before January 2021 presents significant health risks to participants and the public. Similar to school sports, the administration strongly recommends that youth recreational sports be postponed until at least Jan. 1, 2021. The administration is providing this strong recommendation and not an order or mandate. This recommendation:
- Applies to youth team and individual non-school recreational youth sports;
- Allows conditioning, drills and other training activities on an individual basis to continue; and
- Includes competitions, intramural play and scrimmages.
Youth sports should also follow CDC guidance.
