Carson City, NV — On Wednesday, the Nevada Response Center, in coordination with the Local Empowerment Advisory Panel (LEAP) released guidance for contactless outdoor youth sports practices during Phase 2 of the Nevada United: Roadmap to Recovery Plan.

The guidance outlines the mandatory procedures that must be followed and the recommended best practices including specific guidance for baseball, softball and soccer. At this time, only spectator-less outdoor practice sessions are allowed.

Health care screenings should be done prior to engaging in any physical activity and rigorous cleaning of equipment and facilities should be conducted on a regular basis.

Additionally, strict social distancing and the use of facial coverings will be required of all coaches and managers. Players should wear face coverings when they are not actively involved in practice or training.

These guidelines were developed with statewide and local youth sports leagues and associations based on recommendations of public health officials and local health districts.
