ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The youth sports guidelines in St. Louis County are changing again with games and competitions between teams allowed for sports considered "moderate-frequency of contact." Middle school students and those under the age of 14-years-old can play games in all sports, with social distancing, face masks and some other restrictions on spectators still in place.
County Executive Dr. Sam Page made the announcement during his morning press conference on Wednesday saying the changes will take effect starting Monday. He also says the county health department is working on a plan for helping middle schools get students safely back into the classroom.
Page and St. Louis County are facing a lawsuit and protests over the restrictions that were announced a little over two weeks ago.
Here is the full list of moderate-contact sports from the county, which can begin games starting Monday: Baseball, cheerleading, crew/rowing, dance team, fencing, ﬂoor hockey, ﬁeld hockey, racquetball, soccer, softball, team handball, ultimate frisbee, and volleyball.
