Clarification on Masking

Once playoffs start, any team or individual athlete that refuses to compete due to masking requirements will forfeit.

Example: Team A requires all visiting teams to wear masks at any of their home events. Team A is the higher seed and set to host Team B. Team B has received a waiver to not wear masks during competition. If Team A says they will not play unless TEAM B wears masks, Team A would forfeit for refusing to compete.

Please communicate with schools before competitions (at least 24 hours prior if possible). Most issues can be resolved with good communication.
