Screening Process for all Participants:
Prior to stepping on the field, athletes, coaches, referees and volunteers must answer “no” to the following questions:
● Had contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last fourteen (14) days (or any other communicable disease such as MRSA or Influenza);
● Exhibits any symptoms of COVID to include, but not limited to:
● Fever or chills
● Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
● Muscle or body aches
● New loss of taste or smell
● Sore throat
● Congestion or runny nose
● Nausea or vomiting
Note: If one of our coaches or assistant coaches has a good faith belief that your child is exhibiting symptoms of a cold, illness, or is exhibiting health issues that raise concern, thatcoach or assistant coach will have the right to ask your athlete not to participate in the practice and/or game.
In the event of a positive COVID case or Close Contact, Parents will notify the president of CCYL and the player's head coach upon learning of a positive covid test as soon as possible. CCYL will follow the current CDC and NH DHHS guidelines regarding contact tracing and quarantine. If the player practiced or attended a game with his/her team in the 72 hours preceding the onset of symptoms or a positive test, the team will cancel practices and reschedule any games for the following 7 days.
For additional additional information, please refer to
An individual is considered fully vaccinated when they have received 2 doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or 1 dose of the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine, and a full 2 weeks has occurred since the last dose was given.
Any individual, whether vaccinated or not, who exhibits Covid-19 symptoms is required to isolate and seek out Covid-19 testing. Any CCYL athlete, coach or volunteer would need to remain home until a negative test result is received.
Any individual who is fully vaccinated that has been in close contact with a suspected or confirmed Covid-19 positive case does not need to quarantine provided they are NOT exhibiting any symptoms of Covid-19. You should continue to monitor your health for 10 days post exposure to a confirmed Covid-19 case, and if symptoms arise you would be required to quarantine and your child would need to be excluded pending your negative Covid-19 test result.
Any symptoms that are present within 2 days of getting the Covid-19 vaccine would be considered side effect reactions rather than Covid-19 symptoms of concern and therefore pose no issue with an athlete, coach or volunteer attending CCYL events
Should symptoms continue beyond the 2 day period, with no signs of improvement, the symptoms would then be considered potential Covid-19 symptoms and the individual would need to quarantine and be tested for Covid-19. The athlete, coach or volunteer would need to remain at home until your negative test result was obtained.
