As a leading provider of hygiene products for athletes, Matguard USA is dedicated to promoting clean and safe play in sports. With lacrosse season in full swing, we want to share our strategies for maintaining good hygiene on and off the field to help athletes stay healthy and perform at their best. Read on for our top tips!

Keep Your Gear Clean

Keeping your gear clean is essential to prevent the spread of germs among players. Regularly clean and disinfect your lacrosse stick, helmet, gloves, and any other equipment you use. Use Matguard USA's helmet and pad sprays to effectively kill germs and eliminate unpleasant odors. Make sure to also wash your gear, including jerseys and socks, to maintain freshness and cleanliness.

Practice Proper Hand Hygiene

Good hand hygiene is crucial in preventing the spread of germs. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after games and practices. If soap and water are not available, use Matguard USA's personal-size helmet and pad spray to keep your hands clean and germ-free. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands to minimize the risk of infections.

Clean High-Touch Surfaces

High-touch surfaces, such as door handles, benches, and shared equipment, can harbor germs and contribute to the spread of illnesses. Use Matguard USA's surface wipes to regularly clean and disinfect these surfaces, especially during practices and games. Encourage your teammates and coaches to do the same to create a clean and safe environment for everyone.

Cover Your Coughs and Sneezes

During lacrosse season, it's important to be mindful of respiratory etiquette. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when you cough or sneeze, and dispose of used tissues properly. Avoid spitting on the field, as it can spread germs. Remember to also avoid sharing water bottles or personal items with other players to minimize the risk of germ transmission.

Stay Home if You're Sick

If you're feeling unwell or experiencing symptoms of illness, it's important to stay home to prevent the spread of germs to your teammates and opponents. Inform your coach and seek medical advice if needed. It's better to prioritize your health and well-being and return to the game when you're fully recovered.

Stay Informed and Follow Guidelines

Stay updated with the latest guidelines and recommendations from your local health authorities, as well as your team or league's policies regarding hygiene and safety protocols. Stay informed about any changes or updates that may impact the way you play and follow them diligently to ensure clean and safe play throughout the lacrosse season.

As lacrosse season heats up, it's crucial to prioritize good hygiene practices on and off the field. By keeping your gear clean, practicing proper hand hygiene, cleaning high-touch surfaces, covering your coughs and sneezes, staying home if you're sick, and staying informed, you can contribute to a clean and safe playing environment for yourself and your fellow athletes. Remember to use Matguard USA's hygiene products to effectively kill germs and prevent the spread of illnesses. Let's play clean, stay safe, and make the most of this lacrosse season!
