RETURN -TO-PLAY GUIDELINES
As we continue to closely monitor the updates and guidelines from Governor Baker about our phased reopening, we remain cautiously optimistic that our return to the field is in the foreseeable future! With the support and guidance from numerous individuals including medical professionals and our athletic training staff, we have made significant preparations to ensure a safe return when Phase II begins. Please review the below resources as we prepare for our return to the fields:
- Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs: Workplace Safety and Reopening Standards for Businesses and Other Entities Providing Outdoor Adult Sports, Supervised Youth Sports Leagues, Summer Sports Camps – Phase II (Posted June 3, 2020)
- Mass Elite Return-to-Play Guidelines
- US Lacrosse Return-to-Play Recommendations
In preparation for a “Return-to-Play” which could happen as early as next Wednesday, June 10, please complete the Mass Elite “Return-to-Play” Acknowledgement. The completion of this acknowledgement is required in order for all players to return to Mass Elite events for the duration of the summer.

COVID-19 POLICY UPDATES
Temporary update to the Mass Elite Club Policies page found under the ‘About Us’ tab:
The Mass Elite TEAM membership fee for September 2019 – August 2020 is paid in full at the start of the year and is nonrefundable. Like any other business we have unrecoverable expenses and fees incurred to operate our programs for a full year. For this reason, we are not able to offer any partial refunds or credits for our annual club membership.
Tournament Fees have always been due at the time of registration and are nonrefundable for the same reasons mentioned above. We have pre-paid tournament expenses and will not recover all of our costs. However, we are sympathetic to the impact this may have on our Mass Elite families and would like to do what we can to minimize your loss.
Our goal is to provide all families that registered for a spring / summer tournament the opportunity to move that registration to another event before the end of August 2020. We consider these swap events and no further fees would be collected to participate. We would move your registration fee to another event of your choice. Please watch for emails from Mass Elite to see what may be available.
We will be closely monitoring the guidance and directives related to the reopening of Massachusetts. We will address each tournament on a case by case basis. If it is determined that we cannot offer a substitute play opportunity, we will issue site credits equal to 90% of your original tournament registration fee. Once you have committed to a substitute registration, we revert back to our original policy, any drop after registration has been moved to another event/date is nonrefundable and credits will not be issued. Site credits can be applied to any future tournament registration offered by Mass Elite and will be valid for one year. Please note, site credits CANNOT be used towards tryout fees, re-enrollement fees or team fees.
If you have a site credit on your account, we will work with you to be sure that it is appropriately applied to future registrations. To check your credit balance, go to your LeagueApps dashboard and it will appear on the right-hand side of the page. Credits can only be applied to ONE registration at a time so please call the office if you have any questions about applying credits to invoices before you process a payment.
Members graduating in 2021 – We will be offering our rising seniors the opportunity to practice and participate in programs within the 2020-2021 season. There is no annual team fee for seniors. There will be opportunities to use your site credit.
