A Note from Leadership

The health and safety of our athletes, coaches and parents, is and will continue to be our top priority. We have set forth these guidelines to create the safest environment possible for the Triple Threat Lacrosse Community. We will continue to adapt these guidelines as new information is provided to us by national, state and local authorities, as well as CDC and US Lacrosse guidelines.

We strongly advise all members of our community to follow CDC and government guidelines regarding good hygiene, including frequent hand washing. In addition, we recommend that you not only practice social distancing on the field, but off the field as well where possible. These measures are imperative to a successful return to play and will allow us to continue to provide a place for all Triple Threat Elite athletes to reach their full potential and grow in the sport of lacrosse. We look forward to a safe and successful return to play very soon!

General Health Guidelines


Triple Threat Elite Return to Play Overview

Within this document you will find information geared to Triple Threat Elite return to play guidelines. 

Guidelines follow state and CDC recommendations, specific questions should be directed to health care specialists. These guidelines do not override any medical professional guidance received or other state and local health requirements.  

Our top priority in creating a return-to-play plan is enabling players, families, and coaches to get back on the field in a safe and healthy environment that promotes good habits. The health and safety of our players will continue to be our number one priority.  

We want our players, families and coaches to feel confident in returning to play. Anyone who is not ready to return to the fields should wait until they do feel ready, without penalty or repercussions. If you are not confident to return. Don’t.  

This is an ever-evolving environment and plans could change as a result of new information. We are all very excited to see our players return to the field and we know they are just as ready, but it is extremely important that these guidelines are adhered to by all. Our current return to training activity start is June 22nd, 2020.

 Return to Play Responsibilities

Each of us have responsibilities upon returning to the field. The club, parents, players and the coaches. Please help us make the new normal as easy of a transition as possible.





 Responsibilities Regarding Injuries

The potential reaction to a player getting injured is more complicated during the COVID-19 pandemic. The immediate safety of the player must remain top priority, but care should be taken when addressing small injuries (e.g. handing out band-aids). When possible, a parent/guardian should assist in any care necessary.

Rules for A Safe Socially Distanced Practice

48 hours prior to practices starting: *All athletes, staff members and adults dropping off/picking up must certify the following:

  1. They have not had a fever or other COVID-19 symptoms over the previous 2 week period.
  2. They have not tested positive for COVID-19 over the previous 2 week period.
    1. If they have tested positive during that time, they must produce two consecutive negative tests in a 48-hour period to attend practice.
  3. They have not been exposed to someone who has COVID-19.
  4. All athletes and parents must sign a waiver that they are aware of COVID-19 and understand our current situation.
  5. All athletes and parents must agree to follow our safety policies and guidance for attending our practices, outlining our safety protocols.
