Return to Play Guidelines

Boca Raton Youth Sports / East Boca Tackle Football is committed to ensuring all reasonable precautions and procedures are taken in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19. 

In accordance with the CDC, State, County and City, EBT will return to play with strict adherence to these guidelines:

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and exercise equipment (including balls).
  • Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from non-household members as possible.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with tissue when coughing or sneezing. 
  • Stay at home if you are sick. 

Further, we plan to implement the following additional protocols:

  • All players and coaches sanitize hands before and throughout activities.
  • Limit drill group size to 10 or less.
  • Sanitize all shared equipment (balls, bags, dummies) before and after each practice.
  • Restrict distances and movement for spectators and participants on sidelines.
  • Water fountain use is prohibited by the City of Boca Raton, except bottle fill stations.
  • No water bottles will be supplied, all participants must bring their own.
  • Purchase a no-touch thermometer to check any participant or spectator temperature we suspect may be ill.  No player, coach or spectator will be allowed to participate if an elevated temperature is detected.
  • Minimize any unnecessary physical contact such as high-fives and tight player huddles.
  • In inclement weather, participants and spectators will take shelter in vehicles to prevent overcrowding of pavilions and other shared coverings.

While we are looking forward to resuming activities, we appreciate a shared understanding that the safety of participants will represent a departure from normal football practices and camaraderie during this time.
