4/30/21 at 2:15 PM: NC DHHS Guidance for Youth Sports: indoors only for masks

"Regardless of the type of sport being played, all administrators of sports programs are required to: 

Have all coaches, athletes, spectators and other participants wear a face covering indoors, unless they state that an exception applies, or they are more than 6ft away from anyone outside of their household at all times."

https://files.nc.gov/covid/documents/guidance/NCDHHS-Interim-Guidance-for-Youth-Amateur-Sports.pdf 

All other Covid-19 policies outlined below are still in place.

 

FIELD CLOSURE NOTIFICATION: 

ALL Practices:  CJ website, updated by 4 PM Monday-Friday; 11 AM Sunday.

FOR GAME cancellations:  there are two different websites, depending on age:

 *JK/MOPPETS  through UNDER 12:  CJ website, updated by 7:30 AM Sat, 11 AM Sun. 

 *U14 and U18 GAMES: MARS website  http://www.marsoccer.org/ 

(Reason:  CJ/County fields may be closed but private fields used by other MARS teams remain open.)

Note the following:  

1. Fields may need a day or two to dry out after a heavy rain. CJ uses county fields. Mecklenburg Park & Rec makes the call to close fields; not CJSF.  

2. After 4 pm on weekdays, team decisions will be made by the coach prior to or at practice.

3. On game days, if conditions change, referees AND coaches will make decisions at the field. The websites, both CJ and MARS, will be updated accordingly.

Check this web site before heading to the fields!
