  • UNVACCINATED coaches must wear a mask while arriving to, participating in and departing from practices or games.
  • No player or coach should attend any game if they show signs of COVID-19 or have been in close contact of a confirmed case.
  • Should any player participating in an HSC game choose to wear a mask at any time that decision will be openly accepted and tolerated and the decision to wear a mask will not affect that player’s standing on their team or playing time in any way.

Note:  Local fields, and parks, counties, cities, or clubs may have rules that dictate that a mask maybe need to be worn at those locations.
