US Lacrosse | Return-to-Play Recommendations for Lacrosse

By Michelle Mason 05/28/2020, 5:15pm EDT

US Lacrosse has announced a set of return to play recommendations to assist the lacrosse community in following the appropriate steps to mitigate the risk for all participants in the COVID-19 environment.

SPARKS, Md. — US Lacrosse has announced a set of return to play recommendations to assist the lacrosse community in following the appropriate steps to mitigate the risk for all participants in the COVID-19 environment. Highlights of the recommendations and a link to the full white paper developed by the committee are available on the Return to Play webpage.

The recommendations were developed by a medical advisory committee, chaired by Dr. Eugene Hong, chair of the US Lacrosse Sport Science & Safety Committee. The group consists of top medical professionals across multiple disciplines with strong connections to the sport. Additional input was provided by sport, event and legal and risk advisory groups representing every facet of the sport — coaches, officials, youth leagues, clubs and event operators.

“US Lacrosse’s return to play recommendations were developed to serve as an athlete-health centric resource to help the lacrosse community respond to and minimize risks associated with COVID-19 when returning to lacrosse activities and events,” Hong said. “Our guiding principles for this paper were to compile and use relevant scientific research and follow the COVID-19 public health guidance provided by the CDC, WHO and other state and local public health authorities. These recommendations provide a strong foundation for lacrosse programs to plan for a gradual return; the guidance will most certainly evolve over time as information about COVID-19 remains fluid and every community will be at a different phase of return, during this pandemic.”

“We have greatly appreciated the guidance and leadership provided by our medical experts as well as the sport, event and legal advisors, whose involvement in this US Lacrosse work group, enabled us to develop a comprehensive set of recommendations designed to help the lacrosse community make good decisions about safely returning to the lacrosse field during these unprecedented and challenging times.” Said, Ann Kitt Carpenetti, VP of Lacrosse Operations for US Lacrosse.

US Lacrosse will host a free webinar on Monday, June 1 at 11:30 a.m. (Eastern) to discuss the recommendations and answer questions from the lacrosse community. The webinar will feature the following panelists:

  • Ann Kitt Carpenetti, VP, Lacrosse Operations, US Lacrosse

  • Richard Hinton, MD, MedStar Sports Medicine, Baltimore, Md.

  • Eugene Hong, MD, MUSC Health, Charleston, S.C.

  • Karen Sutton, MD, Hospital of Special Surgery, New York, N.Y.

Leah Holmes 




What makes Holmes elite: Holmes found the back of the net a remarkable 98 times last year, giving her 231 goals during her varsity career. She was also dominant on the draw, winning 82, and she had 48 assists. Last summer, Holmes scored 17 goals and had eight assists for the U.S. Women's U-19 team, which went 7-0 to win the U-19 World Championship. The All-American will play next year for one of the country's top collegiate programs.

Leah Kenny




What makes Kenny great: Kenny will play for a college team that was ranked in the top 10 nationally among Division I schools when this year's collegiate season was shut down in March. She was on pace to score 70 goals in 2019 before she went down with a torn ACL. As Rye's top player since her sophomore year, Kenny, who was fully healthy this spring, is also dominant on the draw.

College: Richmond
