  • MU coaches will set up cones at least 6' apart from each other off to the side of the playing area for each player to have a designated space. This will happen at practice and games.
  • At games, players on the sidelines or "on the bench" must have on a face covering or a mask.

  • Only coaches should handle cones at the field.
  • During practices, MU coaches should direct players to keep physically distanced as much as possible.
