    Lungarini (CIAC executive director) says they played about 7,800 contests throughout the fall. Including practices, a little more than 31,000 events. Through data they collected, only 7 positive cases (through contact tracing) were linked back to CIAC activities. View...

    Sorry hockey guys - I hope this doesn't carry over to hoops. Does the cold from the ice make it worse for hockey? Governor Lamont, along with the 5 governors in New England (+ NJ), will suspend interstate youth hockey competitions for public/private schools, effective 11/14/2020, until “at...

    "Water breaks are going to be a major PITA as well. " That was the first thing my son said - how do we do water breaks? and then he said with a mask on they'll need more water breaks than usual Masks are going to get pretty gross too. One of my older sons went an entire season without washing...

    Masks in CT for hoops - at least it seems like practices and games can go on for now.

    CT youth basketball - nothing through our club but coaches are running teams - weekend games in private facilities are available. Practice time is $$ and tough to come by - will be a weird season with more games than practices, which I hate, but making the most of it

    I'd wait and see what he does and deal with it then. Sounds like you're in a fairly small town, won't the board member already know the guy? (saying this as a board member for a different sport in a fairly small town)

    Really? Wow! I watched a HS AAU workout/practice tonight in CT (but mostly MA players) and can't imagine those guys doing that with masks on.

    Do people really think you can get a virus from touching a soccer ball that someone else touched? That seems incredibly unlikely.

    Take the mask on and off during live play? Absurdity is the right word. It sounds more like a comedy/parody skit than real world.

    I was in Derry NH last weekend with my daughter at AAU games, do you mean those guys who do 8 games in a day and barely move? We get a lot more effort than that from the guys at our youth games.

    I agree, signups for winter sports will be interesting. Not looking forward to having to deal with people on the extremes of either side. I'm in CT. There have been two COVID-19 deaths in CT under 19 years old. Six under 30...

    There is going to be a shortage of officials for youth sports for sure this fall and winter. I can't imagine officiating a basketball game (and actually trying to keep up) in a mask.

    I've been to a couple basketball tournaments with squeeze whistles. Horrible. One game they had the guy keeping the clock hit the horn every time he heard a whistle. I can't imagine how bad they'd be outside. Hopefully the electronic onea are better, they should be, my phone is louder than the...

    Umpires aren't wearing masks? What about fouls balls?!?!?! (kidding) It's gotta be extra BRUTAL to be behind the plate, chest protector, shin guards, pants, regular mask plus a COVID mask on a 85-95 degree day.
