How to Create a Return to Play Plan
TeamSnap is a proud member of the PLAY Sports Coalition, a united front of youth sports organizations formed to support young athletes, working families, coaches, and volunteers across all 50 states, particularly those in underserved areas. PLAY Sports Coalition has been doing its part to help youth sports recover through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Recently, the PLAY Sports Coalition and the National Council of Youth Sports released its Return to Play Considerations, which aim to provide youth sports organizations with the tools and resources necessary to develop their own Return to Play guidelines and plan.
A Return to Play plan may include:
- When to return, including a move backward approach
- Operating adjustments
- A communication plan
- A designation of a point person or team responsible for the Return to Play plan
- A monitoring plan
We hope these considerations help organizations create a plan and promote best practices to ensure that all athletes and coaches safely return to play.
