US Lacrosse has released a series of “best practices” guides to help coaches, parents, players and program leaders navigate the return to the field during each of the five stages of the US Lacrosse Return to Play guidelines.

The best practices documents cover content areas such as recommended length of participation, ways to avoid extended and close contact, hygiene precautions, gameplay considerations and rest and recovery and are meant to supplement the full Return to Play guidelines and any recommendations from local and state public health authorities related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
