8April Covid Quarantine Requirements

Copy of email sent to all families 4/8/2021:


Good morning NYLA families and coaches,

This is a clarification of our Covid quarantine requirements:

-If a player is required to quarantine due to having close contact with someone that has been tested positive for Covid-19, that player must quarantine for a full 14 days.  There are currently no options to reduce this 14-day period.  

-If a player tests positive for Covid-19, they are required to be cleared by their Primary Care Physician prior to returning to play.  

These requirements are discussed in the attached document outlining the CT Department of Public Health Updated Guidance for the Operation of Interscholastic, Youth and other Amateur Sport Activities during the Covid-19 Pandemic, dated 19 March 2021.  (page 5)

I've also attached the CT Interscholastic Athletic Conference 2021 Spring Sports Plan, updated 24 March 2021.  Although we are not governed by CIAC, their recommendations for close contact quarantine and positive Covid-19 players mimics the CT DPH guidance that our local Health District follows.  You can read this guidance on pages 2 and 3.  

This is in place until further notice.  

Thank you for your cooperation.

MANDATORY Health Checks

March 26 email to league:


Good evening Newtown Youth lacrosse families, 

It's been a long time, but practices for our season start tomorrow!

This email is to inform you that before every NYLA event this season, until further notice, we will require a completed Health Check for all players and coaches via the TeamSnap application.  You should have received an invitation to join TeamSnap for your assigned team for the Spring season.

CT Department of Public Health's latest guidance mandates we conduct a health screening before every event, and track who attended the event.  TeamSnap is a convenient way to do both. 

I've attached a tutorial on how to do this on the app.  We wrote it for our Winter Clinics, so please ignore where it says 'clinic', and insert practice or game.  

The window to conduct the check opens up no earlier than 8 hours prior to a scheduled event.  

Please read this carefully: without a complete health check on TeamSnap, your son/daughter will NOT be allowed to participate in that day's event.  

As a trial, we used this system for our winter clinics, but took temperatures as a backup.  Each week, 25-35% of participants did not take the time to complete the check on the app.  It honestly takes a minute to open the app, select the day's event, and complete the 5 questions.  

We will not be taking temperatures at the field.  The only way to complete the check is via the app.

It will help your coach greatly if this is complete no later than 30 minutes prior to the beginning of practice, or showtime for games.  

Please don't drop off your player and leave unless you know you've completed the check.  Again, if not complete, your son/daughter will be isolated from their team, and not permitted to participate.  Obviously this is NOT what we'd prefer, but it is required.  

I know there will be growing pains with this, but we need your help to conduct this season safely, and in compliance with local covid mitigation strategies.  

First practice is tomorrow morning for our Senior 7/8 Girls.  Let's have a great season!!
