Playing youth sports is a great way for children to be active and learn important socialization skills. You can take a number of steps to help lower the risk of COVID-19 exposure and reduce the spread while playing sports.

Wear a mask if feasible, especially when it is difficult to stay less than 6 feet apart from other people or indoors, for example in close contact sports such as basketball.

The more people a participant interacts with, the closer the physical interaction, the more sharing of equipment there is by multiple players, and the longer the interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.

Therefore, risk of COVID-19 spread can be different, depending on the type of activity.

What you need to know:

  • Stay home if sick.
  • Players should bring their own equipment, like gloves and bats, if possible.
  • Reduce physical closeness and keep 6 feet of space between players when possible.
  • Wear a mask if possible.
  • Players should clean their hands before and after practices, games, and sharing equipment.
  • Tell a coach or staff member if you don’t feel well.
  • Limit nonessential visitors, spectators, and volunteers. Ensure they wear masks and maintain social distancing.

Check the league’s COVID-19 prevention practices before you go to make sure they have steps in place to prevent the spread of the virus.
