Return to Play (RTP) Information
MASA has published the below guidelines for return to play, which include instructions for players, coaches, and spectators. It is your responsibility to review, understand, and adhere to these guidelines. These guidelines were reviewed and approved by PAWest on July 3, 2020.

MASA Return To Play Waiver
The availability of our fields at Murrysville Community Park is wholly dependent on the direction of the municipality. The above RTP guidelines assume that we are legally allowed to participate according to local and state mandates, which we understand has fluctuated and may continue to do so through 2020.
At-Home Player Resources
Although movement restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic prohibit large numbers of people from training together, there is nothing stopping creative players from continuing to improve their fitness, skills, and knowledge.
PAWest has links to player resources on its website. The page can be accessed here.
Our friends at QuickSkills have provided a few ideas for improving dribbling. The activities can be assessed here.
Beyond these sites, YouTube and other similar sites have very large numbers of highly credible videos for at-home training, small-area training, tight-space training, and other related training scenarios. Some of this content is published by some of the world’s foremost youth academies (e.g., Ajax, Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon).
