TRENTON – Gov. Phil Murphy signed Executive Order 232 March 17, which will rescind the current prohibition on outdoor interstate youth competitions, effective 6 a.m. March 19.

According to a release, attendees at outdoor sports competitions will be limited to players, coaches, officials, and up to two parents or guardians per participating athlete. No additional spectators or attendees will be allowed. 
All persons in attendance at youth sports competitions must follow all health and safety protocols for sports activities, which require attendees to wear masks and social distance, and athletes to wear masks when not engaged in activities.
