In order to ensure the health and safety of all athletes, coaches, parents, referees and spectators, the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) has outlined Return-to-Play Rules that include face covering requirements. Important points to note from MYSA:
- Each participant will be required to have their own face coverings.
- Players are not required to wear face coverings during soccer activities, but must wear them when arriving and leaving a practice or game.
- For non-contact practices face gaiters, bandanas and face coverings that attach around the ears will be acceptable.
- When games and/or tournaments are permitted only a face covering which attaches around the ears will be allowed, so as not to cause any injury if accidentally tugged or pulled on.
- No around the head or neck face coverings will be permitted during contact play.
- Coaches, staff, referees and other officials, and spectators are required to wear facial coverings and maintain social distance of 6 feet at all times.
- All players will be required to wear a face covering, when not actively playing and when a player cannot abide by the physical/social distance requirements from coaches, other players, and parents.
