  • Schools and/or coaches may not bring students together during this time period for extracurricular or athletic purposes such as practices or other instructional/organizational purposes.
  • Schools and/or coaches may not be involved with students during this time period to provide instruction for practice purposes.
  • Coaches may provide individual workouts virtually
  • Coaches may not encourage or organize their team to practice. This means there should be no "captains practices".
