COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Daily Health Self Assessments REQUIRED

  • No player should attend POLL activities if not feeling well or displaying COVID-19 symptoms.
  • All parents/guardians shall self-assess their respective player(s) prior to bringing them to the field.
  • If a player becomes sick, is exposed to someone who is sick or if anyone in the household is pending COVID-19 diagnostic test results related to symptoms, close contact or possible exposure, you must notify the division commissioner in order to reduce further exposures.  
  • If a player or anyone in the household tests positive for COVID-19, the player will be required to quarantine and will not be allowed to rejoin their team until they produce a negative test to the division commissioner and follow CDC guidelines.  

Masks/Face Coverings REQUIRED

  • Masks/face coverings are REQUIRED for anyone entering/exiting the POLL facilities.
  • Players are not required to wear a mask/face covering while practicing or competing in games.

Social Distancing - Spectators

  • To minimize the number of people on or around the fields, parents/guardians should remain in their vehicle during practices and until 10 minutes before games time.
  • By exception, if a parent/guardian chooses to be closer to the practice, they shall observe the masks rules, stay at least 6 feet from others, and observe only from outside the field.
  • Any spectator who is considered ‘at-risk’ to COVID-19 should not attend any POLL activities.

Equipment/Water Bottles/Personal Gear

  • Each player should bring their own water bottle and should not share with other players.
  • Dugout coolers and team snacks will not be allowed.
  • All balls will be provided by POLL.
  • Helmets and batting gloves should not be shared amongst players.
  • Catchers gear is never to be shared; each player who wishes to play the catcher position must provide their own gear. 

Greetings/High-fives/Handshakes/Celebrations

  • Extra contact should be avoided. Avoid handshakes, high-fives, hugs, etc.
  • In lieu of traditional greetings or celebrations, clapping, ‘air’ high-fives, hat tips and other respectful, non-contact gestures are acceptable.
