After a long wait and weeks of administrative preparation, we are glad to see the MCBR teams/players get back on the field this week. Remaining on the fields is now up to the coaches and players to adhere to our RTP Safety Plan-Full document of criteria and guidelines linked in the right side panel. Key Items:
Field owners also reserve the right to add further restrictions to our Safety Plan and each coach must know their field owner's rules. Also, Fields Owners and the MCBR Board reserve the right to restrict teams from further rentals/games should they determine teams are not following the MCBR Safety Plan or their specific field rules. Everyone needs to be vigilant and always maintain proper 6ft spacing to avoid face covering on the sidelines (other than player family group stations). Know the guidelines. Every coach has them and was instructed to review with all team parents; and they are posted on the right side panel. Please work together for a safe and compliant full season.
ROSTERING NOTE: no additional players/coaches can be rostered from this point on without a signed waiver submitted to (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the coach requesting to add the player. A player, or coach, is not covered by insurance until rostered; its a two step process; Register/waiver then we roster them to the team when approved.

We are in daily contact with USSSA. USSSA insurance is not active for any team traveling between COVID regions in NYS as that kind of inter-NYS COVID regional play is not permitted per Gov Cuomo's guidelines in the document linked above (except travel only between the counties that border each COVID region). Teams should contact USSSA NYS Rep Gary Godden for information about USSSA insurance coverage for team events outside NYS. (email@example.com)
NOTE: Teams/players/families/Coaches that travel to restricted states, per the NYS list of restricted states, you are expected to follow the NYS 14-day quarantine requirements upon arriving back into NYS-link below.
