  • Outdoors--Players must bring a face mask/covering everyday to wear anytime it is not possible to maintain 6 feet distance--on and off the field. Players without face masks will not be allowed to participate
  • Indoors--Players must wear a face covering at all times over their nose and mouth when inside the MAC Dome. Players without face masks will not be allowed to participate.
  • Indoor training sessions--we ask that you drop your child off and not remain in the Dome. Exceptions: if you live far away or are the parent of a younger player.
