Covid Protocol 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Harrison Youth Lacrosse (HYL) has established the following return to play plan for spring lacrosse clinics.  All clinic sessions will be run in accordance with state and local COVID-19 guidelines.  Implementing the below required protocols will be a collaborative effort between HYL, coaches, parents and players.  

Should our spring program be cancelled prior to the first session as a result of changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we will be issuing full refunds.  If our program is cut short after the first session, we will be issuing credits for future HYL fall and/or winter lacrosse sessions.

COVID-19 Protocols:


(1) If you are experiencing one or more symptoms of COVID-19, follow these steps and get tested for COVID-19.


(2) If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, regardless of your vaccination status, follow these steps:

  • Isolate for at least 5 complete days, with Day 0 being the date your symptoms started or you were tested for COVID-19. Follow these important steps to keep yourself and those around you safe:
    • Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately.
    • Stay in a separate room from other household members, if possible.
    • Use a separate bathroom, if possible.
    • Take steps to improve ventilation at home, if possible.
    • Avoid contact with other members of the household and pets.
    • Don't share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.
    • Day 1 of isolation begins the day after you became symptomatic OR the day after your specimen was collected, if you do/did not have symptoms.
    • Isolation ends after 5 full days if you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and your other symptoms have improved (Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation​).
    • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever has resolved for 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications.
  • If you had COVID-19 and had symptoms and were you were hospitalized, follow the instructions of your healthcare provider.
  • After leaving your isolation, you must continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days. Wearing a well-fitting mask following isolation will decrease the small risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission to others. Respirators (e.g., N95 masks) are a useful option for personal protective equipment to protect people from exposures in specific settings.
  • If needed for work or school, obtain an AFFIRMATION OF ISOLATION. This form may be used as if it were an individual Order for Isolation issued by the New York State Health Commissioner. Your local health department or New York State Department of Health may contact you for additional information. This Attestation Form will contain your Isolation start and end date, as you indicate, based on your particular circumstances, in accordance with Guidance from the New York State Department of Health.
  • Notify your close contacts of their exposure as soon as possible. Your close contacts should follow the steps below (#3 or #4) and may need to self-quarantine (follow steps below).
  • If you performed a self-test at home, you do not need to report your positive result to your local health department. Results from tests performed at a pharmacy or laboratory are automatically reported to your local health department. At home COVID-19 test results need not be reported.


(3) If you came into close contact with someone with COVID-19 and you are in one of the following groups, you DO NOT need to quarantine.


(4) If you come into close contact with someone with COVID-19, you should quarantine if you are in one of the following groups:

  • You are ages 12 or older and completed the primary series of recommended vaccine, but have not received a recommended booster shot when eligible. THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO ATTENDING SCHOOL. Fully vaccinated individuals (teachers, students, and staff) ages 12 and older who were exposed may attend school.
  • You received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine (completing the primary series) over 2 months ago and have not received a recommended booster shot.
  • You are not vaccinated or have not completed a primary vaccine series.


Steps to follow:

  • Wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days from the date of your last close contact with someone with COVID-19 (the date of last close contact is considered day 0).
  • Get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19. If you test positive or develop COVID-19 symptoms, isolate from other people and follow recommendations in the Isolation section below.
  • If you develop symptoms, follow the instructions above in the section "If you are experiencing one or more symptoms of COVID-19, follow these steps and get tested for COVID-19".
  • If needed for work or school, obtain an AFFIRMATION OF QUARANTINE, which may be used as if it was an individual Quarantine Order issued by the ___ County Commissioner of Public Health. ______ County Public Health Services may contact you for additional information, if needed. This Attestation Form will contain your Quarantine start and end date, as you indicate, and in accordance with Guidance from the New York State Department of Health.

If you develop symptoms, follow the instructions above in the section "If you are experiencing one or more symptoms of COVID-19, follow these steps and get tested for COVID-19".

2022 Girls and Boys FALL BALL Clinics: K - 8

Dear HYL Parents:

We hope everyone is doing well, and best wishes for a happy and healthy return to school and Fall 2022.   HYL had a fantastic season this past Spring, and we thank everyone for making the team practices and games fun, safe, and successful.   We are excited to announce that we will be having Fall Ball Clinics this season, and the clinics will be open to boys and girls currently in grades K-8.   Here are the basics:

Registration:  Registration will open Monday, Augist 15th.  The program will start on Saturday, October 1st and end on Saturday, November 12th.

Cost: $200 per player.  In the event the season is cancelled due to COVID-19 issues, HYL will provide a full refund or credit for all registrants.  We will also offer individual refunds to families who at any time feel uncomfortable with their child continuing to participate due to COVID-19 safety reasons.  We want all families to feel comfortable registering their child/children during these uncertain times.  HYL also offers player scholarships for any family demonstrating financial hardship.

US Lacrosse Membership:   All players need a US Lacrosse membership to play.  If you do not have a membership, you will be prompted at registration to apply.

Equipment:   We encourage all players to purchase their own equipment.  However, HYL does offer all players the opportunity to borrow equipment for free ($150 returnable security deposit).  If you need equipment please indicate during registration.

Dates:  October 1, 2022 to November 12, 2022.

Location:  All clinics will be held on Saturday afternoons on Feeley Field between 3:30-5pm.

COVID-19 Safety:  Throughout the season, HYL will closely monitor New York public safety guidelines and mandates regarding youth lacrosse.  We recognize that wearing a mask is difficult while playing lacrosse.  However, HYL will require all players to wear masks or protective face shields during clinics.  All coaches (and parents attending clinics on the sidelines) will also be required to wear a mask at all times. 


Please spread the word about lacrosse.  All new players are welcome – so have your kids tell your friends to join us.    We are excited to get back to the playing field and look forward to working with your children this year.   Game on!


Warmest regards,

The HYL Board
