Official GPBLL COVID-19 Statement / Policy

The Great Plains Box Lacrosse League is and has been closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the precautions that governments, health organizations, businesses, and other international organizations continue to take to limit its spread and impact. We would like to remind all athletes, coaches, staff, officials, and fans to follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC to take all the proper precautions to remain safe and healthy during the current COVID-19 outbreak. The GPBLL is taking precautions to protect our players, staff, and fans as we continue forward with our season during this COVID-19 pandemic. Our first priority is for our teams and staff to stay as safe as possible.
