We are aware of the current news and updates on the Coronavirus Disease. Please read below on important information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • If you (as a parent, coach, player, etc.) are sick, stay home.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

That being said, we will have hand sanitizer readily available at all score tables and tournament desks at the large venues. If you are sick, please stay home. In an effort to minimize contact, we ask no teams high-five, handshake, or have hand to hand contact during pre and/or post game.
