Pipeline will begin the process of slowly beginning practices for teams in a very controlled manner. Over the next 2 weeks, Pipeline will be having a handful of a team’s train in Howard County to gauge the process of practices including the drop off, pick up, and everything in between (at home checks, social distancing for parents, spectators and much more). Pipeline will be taking immense measures to make sure all players return in a safe environment. We are expecting Baltimore / Harford County sessions to begin to return early July at our facilities (Poly/Friends/Mercy/John Carroll) but this is subject to change. As a club, we want to give every family ample time to study and understand the return to play guidelines.
As always, we will only host practices when approved by local and state authorities and will hold each coach, parent, family accountable to follow the rules specifically as we come back to practices.

Please note that different counties/cities are in different stages of “returning” and each location's rules’ need to be followed explicitly from staff, coaches, players, and parents.
While we are excited to return to the field and some normalcy, the health and safety of everyone in our soccer community is of the utmost importance. We will take our time in returning our players the appropriate way.
