At a time when games and tournaments are usually in full swing, many players and parents are eagerly awaiting news on when (and how) they'll get back to the game they love. And, while most of us don't have definitive start dates, one thing is for sure: the return to sport is on the horizon.

Game on Tip of The Week

Get prepared before games and practice, check your kids' temperatures as well as their symptoms before heading out the house. 

Just so you know...

We asked sport parents like you about how they felt about safety during practice, games and tournaments. Game and practice days should look different as health screens and temperature checks are expected by the majority to be a new role for team volunteers, with 45% agreeing with eliminating locker room time and having physical distancing between kids enforced by staff.
