Covid Restrictions Still In Effect

As Charlton Softball has now started our practices, we are hearing many parents are confused with the current Covid protocols that Charlton Softball is requiring of our athletes, coaches, and spectators.
 
To ensure the safety of everyone, Charlton Softball has decided to follow all state & local restrictions regarding youth sports.  Softball is considered a MODERATE risk sport, and is subject to a number of restrictions.  Most notably, is that facility operators and activity organizers must require facial coverings to be worn by all participants during active play. (Massachusetts Reopening Standards for Youth Sports - Effective 3/22/2021)
 
This is a change from last summer.  During the off-season, the state enacted stricter protocols regarding face coverings for youth sports, and these protocols remain in effect for spring sports.  The move to Phase 4, Step 1 did not remove or reduce the face covering requirement.  The only impact on youth sports was the easing of spectator limits.
 
Charlton Softball is constantly in contact with local health officials, and monitoring state guidelines regarding Covid protocols required of youth sport organizations.  As requirements change, our board will consider all changes and look to adopt those changes.
 
The safety of our athletes, coaches, and spectators is our utmost priority.  We believe we are in the home stretch, and ask for your patience and support in meeting these requirements.
