Only intra-club/team scrimmages are permitted for contact sports and practices/open gyms should be limited in the same way wherever possible. Competitive games and tournaments are permitted for non-contact sports only.” – Responsible Restart Ohio (Ohio Department of Health) Each set of player’s and coach’s requirements listed below are, at a minimum, in accordance with the governing bodies listed above. PSS / K4 reserves the right to change these requirements at any time.
