On July 29th the MHSAA released its return to competition plan for the Fall Athletics programs. In the coming days, the Athletic Department and coaches will be diving into these documents and coming up with procedures and protocols to provide as safe an environment as possible as our kids return to sports. More detailed information will be coming soon but below are a few key things to keep in mind now as we get ready to begin. Please keep in mind that these are the current guidelines and are subject to change, as new information comes out coaches will be sure to pass that along to the athlete.
Physicals- Athletes that had a valid physical for the 2019-20 school year will not be required to get a new one but will have to complete the health form found HERE. This needs to be completed and returned to the high school before being allowed to participate in practices.
Masks- Athletes will be required to wear masks when not actively participating in drills. This will be true for practice as well as games. If an athlete chooses to, they are allowed to wear a mask during practice or competition but it is not required.
Practice- Athletes should come to practice ready to participate as access to locker rooms is currently limited. Participants should also bring their own water as we are still not allowed to provide that.
Football will begin on August 10th time TBA
Girls Golf, Boys Soccer, Cheer, Volleyball, and Cross County will start on August 12th times TBA
Middle School (football, cross country) will not be starting practices until August 31st. More information will come on those sports as we get closer to the start date.
Athletic Contests– Right now we are anticipating changes to be necessary to our current schedule. Golf and Cross Country have currently been cleared to have competitions, while football, volleyball, and soccer are waiting until August 20 for a determination to be made. We also anticipate having limits placed on us for the number of spectators allowed at sporting events. This information has not yet been given to us but will be shared as soon as possible.
