The Damascus Sports Association is closely monitoring the progress of Montgomery County and the State of Maryland reopening guidelines and restrictions for Youth Sports. DSA is excited to get back to youth sports, but want to ensure a safe playing environment for our members, volunteers and parents. In conjunction with Montgomery County and State of Maryland guidelines/restrictions we've included applicable guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
DSA Board has developed the following return-to-play guidelines and procedures:
DSA COVID-19 Return to Play Waiver:
- Participants parent/guardian must sign and return the waiver to the coach before first practice.
- DSA return to play: coaches
- DSA return to play: parents
- DSA return to play: exposure guidance
DSA COVID-19 Practice Guidelines:
- Coach and Assistants Coaches participating in practice must sign and return to commissioners. Guidelines will be adjusted to coincide with the Montgomery County phased re-opening guidance.
- Phase 1 Guidelines
- Phase 2 Guidelines
- Phase 3 Guidelines (Awaiting MoCo Executive Order)
DSA COVID-19 Activity Screening Questionnaire:
- Screening questionnaires will be filled out before the first practice activity. Signed by parent/guardian and coach.
DSA COVID-19 Screening Log:
- Screening log will be used for subsequent practices after the initial screening questionnaire is completed by the athlete's parent/guardian.
