COVID-19 field policy for Medina HS, Wise Middle School, Lyndonville HS and Gasport Elementary fields

Per the guidance from NYSWYSA on 4/27/2021:

Responsible Parties must ensure a distance of at least six feet is maintained among individuals at all times, whether indoor or outdoor, unless safety or the core activity (e.g. practicing, playing) requires a shorter distance. If a shorter distance is required, individuals must wear acceptable face coverings, unless players are unable to tolerate a face covering for the physical activity (e.g. practicing, playing); provided, however, that coaches, trainers, and other individuals who are not directly engaged in physical activity are required to wear a face covering.

As such, the following rules will be in place for all home fields for Medina Youth Soccer:


  • Limit of two spectators per player

  • Physical distancing of six feet that are not members of the same household

  • Face coverings required if physical distancing cannot be maintained

Players and Bench:

  • All players must wear a mask unless unable to tolerate

  • All individuals on the bench must wear a mask and maintain physical distance

Please note, we will monitor the guidance from the CDC, NYS Department of Health and US Soccer and make changes as appropriate
