Cape Cod Lacrosse has been an opportunity for me to give back to the community that helped me start a career in the sport of lacrosse. I have two main objectives in the programs I run with CCLax: to provide top-notch instruction in all of our programs and
The following procedures must be adhered to during all Cape Cod Lax camps and clinics by all staff, campers, and camper families.
All camp locations will adhere to state and local guidelines on participant numbers, group sizes, mask protocols, and social distancing.
Cape Cod Lax Camps staff, campers, and any camper family members must sign the Cape Cod Lax COVID-19 screening waiver before lacrosse camp confirming they have not been sick or have reason to believe they have been exposed to COVID-19 within the 14-days prior to camp. Any staff member or camper who does not comply will not be allowed at camp.
Symptom screening: Cape Cod Lax Campers will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the lacrosse camp facility each day. Campers who pass the symptom check will be cleared to attend camp.
Face Coverings: All Cape Cod Lax Staff will be required to wear a mask at all times during camp, except for when eating or drinking. Parents must provide a face covering for their youth lacrosse player. Masks must be worn by campers and parents/guardians at all times, except when eating and drinking.
No-contact check-in/check-out: Parents/guardians must maintain 6-feet social distancing requirements during check-in and check-out times and avoid congregating in groups before, during and after lacrosse camp. Parents will verbally acknowledge the child’s name for attendance purposes.
Lacrosse Parents and other family members will be unable to stay during the camp to observe the lacrosse training sessions, unless otherwise specified by Camp Director and social distancing guidelines are adhered to, including the use of face masks.
Lacrosse Equipment: Camper’s personal equipment will not be shared and should be properly sanitized after every lacrosse camp training session. All shared equipment will be sanitized after each camp session and during sessions as needed by lacrosse camp staff.
Lacrosse Camper and staff physical interaction including high fives, fist bumps, hugs, and other camper-to-camper/ coach-to-camper contact will not be allowed.
Strict handwashing practices: Before and after snack breaks and meals, staff and lacrosse players campers must wash hands for at least 15 seconds with soap and water. When soap and water are unavailable, staff and campers will be required to use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cape Cod Lax Camps will provide hand sanitizer as an extra precaution, but parents should provide their child with their own bottle which should not be shared with other participants.
Snack and mealtimes: Sharing of food or drink is not allowed. Snack and lunchtime will be taken in groups adhering to state and local guidelines for social distancing.
Group sizes will be based on state and local guidelines.

Cape Cod Lax Camps procedures if staff or camper reports positive COVID-19 test or symptoms
* Procedures may vary depending on local, state, and CDC guidelines.
While our approach to preventing COVID-19 is expected to reduce the likelihood of transmission at lacrosse camp, if there are any reported cases during or within 10 days after camp, we will be required to relay that information to camper families, staff, partner organizations, and the local health department so the appropriate steps can be taken by all impacted parties.
In the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case (of a camper or staff member) during lacrosse camp, the director will immediately notify local health officials, staff members, camper families, partnering organizations. Health officials will help determine a course of action for the program. We may need to close the site where the exposure was reported for a time, allowing time for local health officials to gain a better understanding of the COVID-19 situation.
If it is made known to Cape Cod Lax that a staff member or participant tests positive for COVID-19 within two weeks of completion of a camp, staff members, campers, partnering organizations, and the local health department will be notified.
If a Cape Cod Lax staff member or camper tests positive for COVID-19, they will be placed in an inactive status until they are symptom-free and at least 10 days have passed since their last symptom or they provide a doctor’s note stating a negative test result.
If a Cape Cod Lax staff member reports symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., fever, cough, shortness of breath), they will be placed in an inactive status until a negative COVID-19 test result is confirmed and at least 24 hours have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms. If no test is taken, Cape Cod Lax staff must wait until at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
If a lacrosse camper reports symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., fever, cough, shortness of breath) during lacrosse camp, they will be quarantined until their parent/guardian arrives and removed from the camp. All camper families will be notified the same day. The child will not be able to return to a Cape Cod Lax program until a negative COVID-19 test result is confirmed and at least 24 hours have passed since recovery, which shall be defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms. The child may be allowed back to the lacrosse program as soon as the next day if a doctor’s note is provided that states the condition was not related to COVID-19.
Cape Cod Lax will follow COVID-19 social distancing and safety guidelines as set by the CDC and local government authorities.
To help your family understand COVID-19 and the steps you can take to protect yourselves and the community please reference the CDC website and/or the following CDC fact sheets:
