Return To Play Project

The Return to Play Project was started by a group of high school strength coaches in Florida and 

quickly grew to include athletic directors, trainers, sports scientists and other parties invested in the safe return of our youth athletes to high school sports. Together we created comprehensive guidelines to help administrators, coaches, teachers, parents and athletes to safely return to play after the time off due to Covid-19. 


These are recommendations, but please do your own research and create the plan that will work best for your situation. We hope that at least some portions of these documents can help you bring your student-athletes back as safely as possible.
