Fine Tune Lacrosse COVID-19 Practice Guidelines

Fine Tune Lacrosse practice begins Tuesday, June 2 and in preparation for the summer lacrosse season we have reviewed the following COVID-19 guidance to develop the summer practice guidelines (detailed below): CDC guidance, the CDC summer camp decision tree, the State of Tennessee Executive Order, the State of TN Non-Contact Recreation Guidelines, the State of TN Exercise Facilities Guidelines, and State of TN Summer Day Camps Guidelines. Additionally Fine Tune Lacrosse practice will be held in Williamson County at New Hope Community Church’s outdoor field and therefore we have been in contact with the Williamson County COVID-19 guidance hotline to verify our summer practice plans. We used all of this guidance to develop practice procedures for employees (coach & staff), consumer (player & family), and business process adaptations (field & restroom).

We appreciate you and your family reviewing these guidelines and working to support our shared goals of having a great summer lacrosse season while prioritizing the health and safety of the players, all of our families, and the entire Fine Tune Lacrosse community. If you have any questions or concerns about these rules and expectations, please contact Mike Bienen: [email protected] or 631-300-8559.
