We have received many questions regarding the EEE warnings in effect for some of the sites we are hosting games in.
EEE warnings are not in effect in the Bristol, Burlington and or Farmington sites. There is a warning in the South Windsor area however games in the Manchester parks will not be an issue as there are no night games.
The safety of all our participants is a priority so we are following all local town health protocols put out by the authorities and at this time we do not anticipate any issues.
With that said, as with everything else, we recommend every team have and apply mosquito repellent as you would under regular circumstances when being outdoors in the summer and fall months.
