Ian McGinnis is happy with the rules put in place so far but knows enforcing them will be a true team effort. “With the rules we've put into place, we're trying to minimize risk as much as possible. It is important to remember, however, that risk cannot be entirely eliminated. In order to create and maintain a safe environment, everybody needs to participate including myself, coaches, attendees, and their parents. Your participation means maintaining social distancing, wearing a mask, and staying at home when you're sick”.
Coaches and players are required to go through a COVID-19 symptom screening prior to any activity as well as remaining six feet apart at all times. An emphasis on not sharing drinks, equipment, and having coaches handle any training equipment is enforced by all coaches and Ian himself. All non-players on the field are also required to be wearing masks.
After months of virtual team meetings and workouts, Peter Lawrence, President & Executive VP of Boys Lacrosse was happy to be back. “It is great to be back on the field with the players and coaches. I am appreciative of all the hard work that Ian McGinnis has put in our safety guidelines that have allowed us to return to play safely”.
NXT is thrilled to be back on our home turf at The Proving Grounds with all our players, coaches, and parents. Small group training camps are expected to continue until Montgomery County moves to the Green Phase.
