Implementing the DSAU Return-to-Play Guidelines will require a cooperative relationship between the Club, Coach, Parent, and Player. While the Club and Coach must create a safe environment, the Parent must make the decision for their child to return to play. If, as a parent you are not comfortable in your child’s returning to play – DON’T. And finally, Players must be responsible to adhere and respect the social distancing requirements and contact guidelines that have been established.

Below is a national guide of the return to play phases. In Maine, the guidelines are slightly different but still relatable. For example, Maine suggests 6 ft apart compared 10 ft apart and Maine allows for groups of 50 in phase II. We are currently in Phase II and moving towards the introduction of controlled scrimmages in Phase III.
