MARA Update

MARA Members,

Based on the June 24, 2020 EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 147 EXTENSION OF PHASE 2 ORDER AND NEW MEASURES TO SAVE LIVES IN THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC issued by the Governor of North Carolina the MARA Board is now required to enforce a policy that requires all visitors to the Arthur Goodman Park over the age of 11 years old to wear face masks.

  • All adults visiting Arthur Goodman Park including spectators, coaches and umpires will be required to wear masks when social distancing cannot be achieved.
  • Visitors under the age of 11 years old are not required to wear masks.
  • All participants involved in sporting events are not required to wear masks during activity. Any participants over the age of 11 years old will need to wear a mask when entering, moving about and leaving the park.
  • Any visitor that has a preexisting condition that will be aggravated by wearing a mask is not required to do so.
  • We are still under participation rule of 25 players/ coaches per field and 25 spectators per field. So 1 parent per player continues.


Please continue to follow the guidance of the NCHHS, the CDC and Mecklenburg County Health Department.

  • Wear – Wear a mask
  • Wait – Wait at least 6’ from the person in front of you
  • Wash – Wash or sanitize your hands frequently

If you have been in contact with someone that is sick, have been sick or if you have symptoms of Covid-19 please do not visit the park under any circumstance.


Thank you for being a MARA Member,
