Broken Arrow's sports complexes are expected to open Friday. This will allow sports teams to practice in groups of 10 or less.

If teams have more than 10 people, they will be expected to divide up for the practice sessions.

Teams are also expected to follow social distancing guidelines of staying six feet apart.

According to city leaders, if hospital and incident rates remain at a manageable level, they will allow games and tournaments to resume on May 15.

Each organization must submit an "action plan" on how they will accommodate social distancing requirements for these events.

Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation Director Matt Hendren told 2 Works for You, "Once they start leagues and tournaments it's going to look a little different than a normal season. There is going to be a lot more people that are spread out. There is going to be a lot of hand sanitizer stations."

During league play, staff members will visit the complexes to make sure people are following social distancing guidelines.
