Cannons 2026 -
We are still waiting for our game schedule for this Sunday's Autumn Classic Tournament in Delaware and I will share as soon as I see it.
In the meantime, looking ahead to our Indoor Lacrosse League scheduled to begin the weekend of December 5, many of the boys are concerned about whether we will be able to play with the rapidly changing COVID restrictions. Please assure them know WE WILL PLAY! We received a note from the league director this morning. I am sharing it below for your FYI.
Coaches / Administrators,
There have been some questions as to whether our league will be played this season due to new COVID-19 restrictions being set forth by state and local municipalities. I spoke with the owner of Capital Sportsplex last night and have been reassured that our league is GOING TO PLAY. The Capital Sportsplex is 44,000 square feet, has a recently upgraded air filtration system, conducts bi-hourly cleaning, and has 50’ ceilings. The facility also has garage doors on each field that can be opened to provide fresh air flow on days that the weather isn’t too bad. Even with a 25% capacity restriction, the facility is more than capable of hosting our league. In fact, the new restrictions don’t affect them as Prince Georges County never entered phase 3 of the reopening plan so they have been hosting soccer and adult leagues for the past several months with these restrictions already in place.
Teams will enter through the front door after having their temperatures checked and will wear face-protection while entering the field (not during play unless they choose to wear one). There will be a 10-minute buffer between games so the teams that just finished playing can leave through exit doors on the opposite side of the field prior to new teams entering the field. There may be a one-parent per player limit depending on how large the teams are, but games will be live-streamed so parents can watch games on their electronic devices.
Obviously congregating inside and watching the previous game prior to your teams taking the field won’t take place as it has in years past but with the above-mentioned precautions in place, we are confident that we can provide your teams, families, and players with a safe indoor lacrosse experience that will prepare them for the upcoming spring season. Life will eventually return as we know it and these kids need some semblance of normalcy, especially now.
Hope to see you on the fields with us in few weeks.
Director, Mid Maryland Indoor Lacrosse League
