Stillwater Lacrosse Return to Play (Boys/Girls) COVID 19 Guidelines

We are excited to get our players back on the field for the activities we can provide. We ask that parents and guardians be patient and understanding as this is not going to be like what they have grown accustomed to.  We are going to work with our players in all areas and provide some unity and familiarity.  We need everyone to do their part in making this as safe as possible for our players to return to the field of play.

Skills and Drills

Pre-Lacrosse Screening

  • Players and coaches will be screened prior to every training session for COVID-19 symptoms.
    • Designated Screeners will be on the field for the arrival of training taking temperatures.
  • If a player or coach has been in contact with a family member or person with COVID-19 they are not to attend training sessions.
  • Any person who has positive symptoms should not participate in training and should contact their primary care provider.
  • It is highly encouraged for players parents to screen their players prior to any training sessions
  • Masks will not be required for our players to participate.

Screening Process Upon Arrival

  • Players and coaches will take their temperature at home and report their temperature to the coach prior to training.  If the temperature reflects a fever (100 degrees or higher), the participant must stay home from training.
  • Any player or coach that has had any of the following symptoms within three days of their session will not participate in training for that day:
    • Dry Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fever (100 degrees or higher)
    • Chills
    • Muscle pain
    • Sore throat
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Fatigue
  • Coaches and players will be held under the same regulations for screening and recording of symptoms.
  • We request that all temperatures are taken prior to arrival and if your player does not pass initial screening they will not be allowed to participate in activities.  Those players will be asked to leave the fields immediately.

Arriving at Training

  • Players are expected to come dressed for all lacrosse events, NO LACROSSE BAGS, leave them in the vehicle.
  • Clothing worn for training should be clean and freshly washed.
  • If the player has arrived before the coaches, stay in your vehicle with your parent until coaches/screeners have arrived.
  • Do not interfere with any participants that are on the field before our training.
  • Absolutely No shooting or playing catch of any kind prior to being screened.
  • Do not share any sort of equipment or sticks.
  • After being properly screened by the coach, always maintain a 6-foot distance from other players, and await further instructions from the coach.
  • Players must BRING THEIR OWN WATER BOTTLE, drinking fountains at the High School are closed and there can be NO SHARING OF WATER BOTTLES
  • PLAYERS ARE NOT TO TAKE TO THE FIELD UNTIL 5 MINUTES PRIOR TO THEIR START TIME

During Training

  • We will run controlled scrimmages and competitive drills that will involve contact and the inability for social distancing.  We will not be inviting outside associations to our home fields.
  • Groups will intermingle when controlled scrimmages are being held.
  • Parents will be allowed to observe but they must recognize the 6-foot social distancing guidelines while observing our players on the field.
  • There will be no food or drink allowed on the fields except for water.  If there is a health need please let us know so we will be able to make accommodations.  However, it must be a documented health need.
  • No sunflower seeds or chewing gum will be allowed on the fields, and please refrain from spitting on the fields.
  • If a player becomes ill during practice we will place that player in an area away from others and contact the parents for pickup.
  • If a player shows a total disregard for our policies and procedures, they will be asked to leave.  If this behavior is repeated, they will not be allowed to return.  No refunds will be issued for this very condensed season.

Post Training Instructions

  • Players are encouraged to immediately return home, shower, and wash clothes worn during training.
  • It is highly recommended to also sanitize equipment after each training session.
    • As new information comes out it has been said that midday sunlight is capable of inactivating 90 percent or more of the COVID 19 virus after 34 minutes of exposure.  Please if weather permits
  • IMPORTANT: If a player contracts COVID-19 or has developed the symptoms that could be attributed to COVID-19, please contact your primary care provider for instructions for testing and care.  Also, please contact Mark Sargent markdsargent@gmail.com 651.895.2241 so that other players and coaches that were involved in the training session can be made aware and kept off the field for future sessions.

 

 

2020 Fall Season Boys Registration

Hello Stillwater Area Lacrosse Families,

We know many of you have been waiting eagerly for us to get the fall season up and running. We have yet to receive an actual game schedule, but our practice fields are secure, and our registration is live! With that said, here are some details for the upcoming fall season.

Registration:

Registration opens today and we will need to put a hard close of 09/08/2020 at 11:59 pm. Because the fall season is very short we will NOT be able to accept registrations after 9/8/2020. Please be sure to get your player registered as soon as possible. Also, we ask that your player use the jerseys that were issued for our summer season as we will not be ordering jerseys specific to fall this year. If you are a new player, please contact Mark Sargent markdsargent@gmail.com or Dan Duffee duffeedan@gmail.com and we will work with you to get your player a jersey.

Fall Season Practice:

All practices will be held at Oak Land Middle School.  Currently, we are scheduled to start at 7:00 pm and go until 8:30 pm on Wednesday, September 9th. All practices will be Wednesday nights. As sunlight becomes an issue we will dial practice end times back by 15 minutes. Our goal is for practice to be no less than 1 hour and 15 minutes. This will require us to change the start time as well to 6:45 in the near future. We will send out a notification when that needs to happen.

Games:

All games will be played on Sundays, the schedule is still TBD. We may play in the morning or afternoon. Locations for games will be held at Concordia, St. Paul McMurray fields, or St. Paul Central High School.

Tournament:

This year's Great Pumpkin Shootout will be held at the National Sports Center in Blaine on October 10th – 11th. 

We were hoping to get the registration out sooner, but we wanted to issue the boys and the girl's fall season registration at the same time. Unfortunately, with this being the first time that a fall season has been offered to the girls that play association, the leagues are still working all of that out. Our girl's season has not yet been finalized. Please plan on our girls starting practice on September 9th, at Oak Land Middle school from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm. The girl's end time will also get dialed back as we adjust for sunlight. Please be on the lookout for the girl's fall season registration to be issued very soon. 

Thank you,

Stillwater Area Lacrosse Association

2020 Fall Season Girls Registration

Registration for the Girls Fall Lacrosse Season is now open!!

If you plan to participate, please register ASAP so we are able to plan accordingly.  Additionally, we need to cap the number of players at each age level (U10-U14) given the 7v7 game format.

Practices:  Practice will begin Wednesday September 9th from 5:30-6:30pm at Oakland Middle School.  Practices will then continue Wednesday nights through early October, last day of practice will be October 7th.

Games:  We will be playing in the GNLL for Fall - despite the low number of teams/associations that registered it looks like we will get a few 7v7 games in for U10-U14, unfortunately no games for U8.  Game schedule will be provided as soon as it is finalized, but plan for some games to start as early as September 13th.  Most games will be played at Concordia Seafoam Stadium on Sunday mornings.  We've worked with GNLL to minimize the amount of overlap between these games and hockey commitments.

CLICK HERE FOR LINK TO GAME SCHEDULE

Tourney:  We are also planning/hoping to play in the Pumpkin Shootout if we can get enough players, Oct 10-11th at the National Sports Center in Blaine.  More information to come...

Registration:  With the 7v7 format we will have to cap registration at around 14-15 per division for U10-U14.  Cost for U10-U14 will be ~$165/player which includes practices, games, and the tourney.

U8 will be available for practices only at a discounted rate, $50/player.

Please reach out to any SALA Board Member with questions!

We look forward to a fun Fall Season!
