Athletic Field Use - Covid-19
Pasco County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources is opening up athletic fields that are not currently under maintenance, with restrictions. Field use will be open for general walk-in use on fields that are not reserved, however social distancing guidelines remain in effect. Field use will be open to youth leagues based on reservations and an approved plan for safe play.
In order to participate in field play at this time, cosponsored youth organizations are asked to submit a plan that outlines how the organization will adhere to CDC social distancing guidelines. Please specify group sizes and field setup as well as projected risk level (i.e., Lowest Risk: Performing skill-building drills or conditioning at home, alone or with family members; Increasing Risk: Team-based practice; More Risk: Within-team competition; or Even More Risk: Full competition between teams from the same local geographic area. Highest Risk: Full competition between teams from different geographic areas is not authorized at this time).
Social distancing guidelines remain in place and every practical precaution should be taken to keep children, coaches, volunteers, parents and spectators safe as you return to play. You can visit the CDC website and see recommendations for youth sports at the following link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/youth-sports.html
Additionally, please work with the Site Supervisor or main contact of the facility you utilize, for seeding schedules. Once we’ve reviewed and approved your plan for safe play, we will notify your organization with permission for field play in accordance with your approved plan and reservation.
Finally, reservations will not be accepted from the general public until June 15th. Please submit your season packet and reservation request no later than Monday, June 8th so that we may secure your space for your upcoming season.
Please submit safe play plans to your respective superintendent: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
Thank you for your cooperation during this very difficult time.
