Madlax Face-Off Camp July 21-23

COVID-19 SAFE CAMPS

We are very excited to offer summer camps for boys and girls still in Virginia! All Madlax Camps will be managed so the campers can remain safe and still have fun while learning lacrosse!

How These Camps Will be Managed (until further notice):

  • Every family to sign an additional new COVID waiver for each athlete before the camp, HERE.   
  • We will follow current VA state guidelines that allow gatherings of 50 people. (this may change to 250 people on July 1).
  • We will actually have teams/groups of only 15 or less that your son will be with all week. We will start with teams by grade/age and move players within the first hour if necessary based on size or skill. After that they will literally only be with their team/group of 15 or less all week. 
  • Coaches will run organized and carefully planned drills where limited contact between your child(ren) occurs. There will be unavoidable contact as they play but we will emphasize no 'intentional' body contact to be a lot safer. Lacrosse will be played as a 'low contact' sport at our camps. We will not coach face-offs or have anyone take face-offs.  
  • Campers will not be required to wear masks under helmets or at all before or during camp.   
  • Coaches will try to keep 10+ feet of distance on the field but will NOT wear masks on the field.  Often coaches will be closer than 6 feet in the normal course of players running around and coaches coaching but again it will not be intentional. 
  • Parents should wear masks for check-in and pick-up. 
  • Drop off and pick up by parents and everyone driving the child(ren) is required.  After check-in, we will require that all parents return and stay in cars if they must stay at Linway Terrace Park. When this changes we will communicate it with parents. We need to control exposure, be able to contact trace and stay within our gathering limits on the field. During pick up please do not go down to field. We will send child(ren) to you after you park and come to area off the field to meet them.  
  • Social distancing will be prioritized in camp during water breaks and pre/post camp periods. Again, please understand this will not be the case on the actual field during drills and games when helmets are on. 
  • We will maintain exact records of who is on each field each hour in each team/group in case of future contact tracing needs. 
  • If a player, family member, parent or coach comes in direct contact or tests positive for COVID-19, Madlax MUST be notified so we can communicate with all families. Such occurrences may likely result in 10 days of separation from Madlax camps
  • No playing on the Linway playground at all. Players must bring and use their own gear and equipment. No sharing of anything including water, goggles/gear, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, etc. Bags will be separated within group s as well. 
  • We will have hand sanitizer readily available the entire session. 
  • We will not provide water jugs or extra water so please send your child(ren) with 2-3 water bottles.
