Spring/Summer Protocols

At this time, we are awaiting further guidance from the State of Minnesota with regards to outdoor play. We recognize that teams are beginning to go outside for training and possibly, matches.

At this time, limited guidance from the State of Minnesota indicates that players must wear face coverings at all times. A comprehensive update to the TCSL Return to Competition Plan will be updated and communicated once more information is known.

The Winter Play protocols remain in effect until further notice.

MDH Sports Quarantine Clarification (February 19, 2021)

MDH Sports Quarantine Clarification

**Per the guidance above, MDH has issued clarification and scenarios that would allow for a shortened quarantine (7 days, versus 10 or 14 days) period should an athlete be considered “exposed”.

A shortened quarantine period may be considered for return to play:

if the athlete was WEARING A MASK at the time of exposure AND if both the following are true:

  • The person has NOT had symptoms of COVID-19 during the quarantine period.
  • The person does NOT live with someone who has COVID-19.

Fill out the following forms if your club had an exposure at your club and that exposure resulted in a quarantine that will postpone TCSL matches:
