  11. Do the players need to wear masks during their off time?
    1. This will be up to the parents, We have received different recommendations for young people with wearing masks. All adults MUST wear a mask when not in their car and dropping off players to the entrance.
  12. If we want to return only when field practice returns, how do we communicate that to you?
    1. We will be keeping all players on a separate roster outside of TeamSnap. We will let everyone as we return through different stages, so parents will have the flexibility to return at a time when they feel safest.
