Registration for Boys & Girls Fall Ball programs is now open!
After registering for Fall Ball 2020 you will receive an email with the NYL Covid release form. All parents must print, sign and deliver the Needham Covid Release Form to the first practice that their player attends.
The health and safety of our athletes, coaches, and volunteers remain our highest priority. Below is a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our athletes to play.
All players must arrive leave their cars fully dressed to practice. There will be no changing on the field.
All Parents will need to sign a NYL Covid release form and sign their player/s in at a registration table located at first practice for contact tracing purposes. The NYL COVID release form will be parent signed once, however player attendance check in/time stamped will be mandatory for each practice.
No bags on the field. All bags must remain in the car they came in and water bottles must stay with players at all times.
Players will be separated into small groups of ~10 players and will remain in their assigned group for the duration of the practice
All practices will be limited exclusively to non-contact drills and we will not engage in any scrimmages or games approved by the Governor and the EEA.
Players will maintain a distance of 6 feet apart while waiting in any drill lines.
All coaches are REQUIRED to wear a cloth face covering during practices. Players may opt to wear a cloth face covering on the sidelines and during play if feasible.
Parents will not be allowed on the fields and may watch practice from their vehicles. Parents are expected to abide by all social distancing requirements and are REQUIRED to wear a cloth face covering when they are outside of their vehicles.
Anyone who is sick or has been in contact with someone who has COVID-19— including players, family members, coaches, staff and spectators — should not attend practices or games. Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.
