Return to Play Guidelines

For SYC General Guidelines: *Read SYC General Return to Play Guidelines and Updates.

SYC OUTDOOR SPORTS COVID POLICY (games/meets and/or tournaments hosted by SYC):

1.  Masks are highly encouraged but NOT REQUIRED for all spectators/coaches/volunteers/referees that have been fully vaccinated. This is consistent with the Governor’s guidance. 
2.  Players may choose to wear masks or not wear masks while playing.  That is a family decision. 
3.  No sharing of personal equipment (water bottles, gloves, etc.)
4.  Recommend wiping down playing equipment (balls, etc.) at least twice a game (beginning and halftime or between quarters/periods).
5.  Players/spectators/volunteers do not show up more than one-half hour before game time.
6.  Teams/volunteers/spectators are to vacate the playing field within 15 minutes of the end of the contest.

7.  Report any positive COVID cases associated with youth sports to the SYC Office Manager (still a County requirement).

SYC OUTDOOR COVID POLICY (SYC teams attending games/meets/tournaments hosted by other clubs/venues):

Traveling SYC Teams will follow the established COVID policies of the host club/venue while participating in their games/meets/tournaments.

Please note this policy/guidance is fluid.  The SYC RTP Committee will re-visit SYC’s COVID Policy/Guidance and adjust accordingly, as state COVID guidance is updated.

If you have any questions, please email the SYC Return-to-Play Committee at

For Specific Sport Guidelines, see below. 

NOTE: Not following any part of this policy will cause the games, or the entire season, to be stopped and discontinued until such time as the Governor’s guidance changes.
