By MTsc U, 03/12/20, 7:15AM CDT


Hello MTsc Nation,

As everyone is aware there is great concern regarding COVID-19.  In order to protect yourselves and others, please consider the following protocols:

  • After the walkout and introductions and/or after the game, either bump fists or elbows with the opponents, coaches and referees. Avoid shaking hands.
  • Avoid spitting on the ground.  In the course of a match, players may slide through it.
  • Cough into your elbow.
  • Do not share whistles, food or drinks.- Wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol based rub for at least 20 seconds. 
  • If you are feverish, contact your health professional and do not participate in soccer events.  Stay home.
  • Stay at least 3 feet from anyone who is coughing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.


If you have questions or concerns regarding COVID-19, contact your medical provider or your county health department. You can find links to additional informational sites below:

Thank you and have a great season!
