AYL Families,

The health and safety of our families is our primary focus and the COVID-19 situation is disrupting life throughout the world. 

While there is a lot of uncertainty, we all believe that getting back onto the field is a critical step for our families and the healing process.

AYL Football 2020 COVID Safety Guidelines


Organized recreational sports

  • Organized youth or adult recreational sports leagues in groups of up to 50 players, excluding coaches and referees/umpires, are permitted.

**Some Counties allow only to 25 players

  • Spectators, like parents, are permitted for youth sports, so long as members from different households maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from each other.
  • Maintain contact information and team rosters and be prepared to support local public health contact tracing efforts if exposures occur. 
  • Do not share snacks or water, except in emergency situations.
  • Games that require extensive travel are strongly discouraged.
  • Practice social distancing of 6 feet from other households during drop off/pick up of players.
  • Masks are encouraged where feasible (i.e. by coaches, by spectators)
  • Temperature checks are encouraged before practices and games
  • Face Shields/Splash shields are encouraged for every player.


  • When not in active play continue to physically distance, staying at least 6 feet from members of other households.
  • Stay home other than getting  tested if you are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Avoid recreating in public spaces if anyone in your household is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Encouraged to wear a mask while recreating.  Abide by local health department orders.
  • Bring hand sanitizer to clean hands when soap and water is not available.

Player/Coach testing positive for COVID during the 2020 season.  

The AYL Football Policy is:

  • Should a Player/Coach test positive they are to be are to be in quarantined for 14 days and return only after a receiving a negative test
  • Team Coach will inform team (without naming child) that there was a player/coach that tested positive so Parents can be aware of the potential exposure
  • AYL Board will not assume the balance of the players have been exposed since there is no way to determine where the child did get exposed.  Thus the team can continue to practice/play as scheduled and does not need to quarantine.
  • Parents will continue to be responsible to watch over their child for any symptoms and should stay home if the child is sick.
  • Parents always have the right to decide if their child will continue to participate or not
