Please know that the HSLL very much wants to see players on the field again this season, and that we are prepared to make that happen as soon we are responsibly able to do so. We want the kids to play. If it’s possible, they will.
Please watch your inboxes and this space for updates, and thank you for your continued support.
The High Sierra Lacrosse League (HSLL) is suspending all lacrosse games, practices and meetings effective Saturday, March 14, 2020 until further notice. The HSLL is following the directive of the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) to suspend all sanctioned high school sports. The NIAA decision is at this link.
During this suspension, HSLL high school and youth programs are not to compete in any games or to hold any practices or meetings.
The HSLL Board does not make this decision lightly. The health and safety of our players, families and our entire community in the Truckee Meadows guide our decision-making process. We will continue to monitor information daily from the Nevada Department of Health, Washoe County Department of Health, Washoe County School Department and the NIAA during this suspension of HSLL activities. Any updates will be communicated to our teams and families in a timely manner.
As we wrote in yesterday’s communication, we encourage all High Sierra Lacrosse League participants – including players, volunteers, families, and fans – to follow the best practices outlined by the CDC and WHO, linked here - Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization.
During this challenging and dynamic situation, we believe in the power of community and the support it can provide. As a society and as individuals, it is our responsibility to curb expansion of this virus. Be diligent and stay healthy.
