VGYL Response to COVID-19 and School Closures

Victor Lacrosse Families - The Victor Girls Youth Lacrosse Board has been working and communicating with other local and national sports organizations, as well as reading all local, state and national Department of Health communications to ensure we are fully up to speed on appropriate reactions and protocols to the COVID-19 virus (please see US Lacrosse's press release on COVID-19 below).

Based on the recent closure of the majority of Rochester County schools (including Ontario County), Victor Girls Youth Lacrosse will be following Victor Central School Districts recent communication and suspending all programming until further notice (including tonights Skills & Drills at Pinnacle).  Like other sports programs communications that have gone out in the last 48 hours, we are taking the position of extreme caution and ensuring that we comply with all local and county rules and precautions.

We are not taking any position on what this all means related to the Spring 2020 season, as it is premature, and VGYL met this week with all other League towns to prepare for the season as if it will still take place.

We hope everyone takes this time at home with their families to have fun and stay healthy.  With the weather breaking a bit this weekend, drag out those rebounders or throw some balls with a sibling or parent.

Any questions - please email vgylax@gmail.com

https://www.uslacrosse.org/blog/us-lacrosse-cancels-two-national-events-postpones-others

In an effort to help mitigate the potential effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health threat, US Lacrosse is postponing all events scheduled through April 5 and is canceling two national events scheduled for May — the Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates (WCLA) National Championships in Round Rock, Texas and the US Lacrosse Women’s National Tournament in Bel Air, Md.

More than 80 percent of the WCLA teams are currently not playing and many have had their seasons canceled, making the ability to conduct the championship unfeasible.

The US Lacrosse Women’s National Tournament was not scheduled until May 23-24, but the majority of regional tryouts for the event were scheduled for the next few weeks. Given the inability to conduct those tryouts for a number of reasons, it was determined the best course of action was to cancel the event rather than provide a sub-optimal experience for participants.

For other events scheduled after April 5, US Lacrosse will continue to assess their viability and make any additional adjustments.

The postponements include the following events:

  • US Lacrosse Coach Development Program instructional clinics
  • US Lacrosse TryLax events
  • US Lacrosse Sankofa clinics
  • Player evaluations for the National Team Development Program on March 28, 29 and April 4

US Lacrosse intends to reschedule postponed events. Registrants for postponed events will be able to transfer their registration fee to a rescheduled event or request a refund.

During this time, the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame and Museum will be closed to the public and all events scheduled on Tierney Field through April 5 are canceled.

We encourage individuals to contact their local healthcare providers and public health authorities if they have questions or concerns regarding individual medical advice. Given the fluid nature of this situation, US Lacrosse will continue to monitor information from the CDC, and state and local public health authorities, and will share any updates that relate directly to the lacrosse community.
