COVID-19

General COVID-19 Assumptions, Policies, and Procedures

Note: As of June 2nd, all previous public health orders have expired.

 

As of June 2021, MSSC will be operating under the assumptions, policies, and procedures listed below. These policies will be revised and updated as necessary. Players and officials will be notified of material changes as appropriate.

  • Our leagues are 100% voluntary activities, and no one is forced to participate in them
  • Our leagues generally cater to a younger, lower risk population
  • Everyone who participates in our leagues will have to complete a new waiver (reflecting COVID-19 concerns) before their first game
  • MSSC will not require players to wear face masks during league play. Anyone who chooses to wear PPE during league play is responsible for ensuring it is kept with the player’s belongings and not left in common areas
  • No one should participate in our leagues if they are uncomfortable being around players who are unmasked
  • The possibility exists that we will be forced to reschedule, postpone, or cancel games or entire leagues for any number of reasons associated with this virus. This includes, but is not limited to: regression in the metrics used to move from phase to phase by the Forward Dane plan, changes in public health policy, lack of available referees and umpires, etc. The city ultimately controls our ability to use their parks. If leagues are unable to continue at some point, all teams will be reimbursed for games not played. However, no prizes will be awarded
  • If an individual tests positive for COVID, he or she is expected to notify MSSC promptly. Upcoming games may be cancelled in the event of a positive test if the person testing positive was considered "infectious" per public health guidelines at the time the most recent game involving that player was played. No refunds will be issued to a team with a player who tests positive and forces the cancelation of a game that cannot be rescheduled
  • Lastly: Use common sense. If you’re feeling the slightest bit sick, stay home. If you’ve been around someone who is/was recently sick, stay home
