Summer 2020 Athletics & Activities Information
[June 2020] Dear Parents and Athletes,
First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We have received questions from the community about how COVID-19 will change this year's athletic season. We know this outbreak has been stressful to many and recognize that exercising and participating in activities, like sports, can be a healthy way to cope with stress and connect with our community. After careful thought and planning, we are excited to let you know that we plan to have Summer Workout Practice for High School sports while following CDC considerations to protect players, families, and our community. However, we have not received guidance from the Governor on if, or when, sports will continue this upcoming school year.
The health and safety of our athletes, coaches, staff and volunteers remain our highest priority. Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our athletes to play. We are:
- Intensifying cleaning, disinfection, and ventilation within our facilities and premises by: scheduling practices with a minimum of 30 minutes between them to allow for cleaning/disinfecting of equipment, we will only allow the gym, cafeteria, and gibney center to be used once a day to allow for proper cleaning, we have conducted training, and we have a daily cleaning sheet log that will verify if the cleaning was completed.
- Reducing physical closeness or contact between players when possible by: keeping athletes of stable pods of 5-10 athletes, with no more than 25 athletes at a time, there will be no mixing of pods, allowing no more than 50 people indoors and 100 outdoors - as long as physical distancing can be maintained, no physical contact allowed (high fives, fist bumps, hugs, hand shakes, group celebrations), locker rooms are closed (must come to practice dressed and ready to go).
- Promoting healthy hygiene practices: coach will do a daily health screening/contact tracing, athlete must supply refillable water bottles (no fountains, troughs or shared bottles allowed), athlete must bring own towel and take home daily (it will be thrown out if left), shirts must be worn, athlete must wash hands or use hand sanitizer before touching any equipment. It is recommended that coaches, staff, parents, and spectators wear a cloth face covering during practices. Players are not required to wear a cloth face covering, but may opt to do so on the sidelines, dugouts and during meetings. As a reminder, cloth face coverings should never be placed on young children younger than 2 years of age, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance.
- Limiting the sharing of equipment: no sharing of towels or clothing, balls to be shared within stable pods only.
Anyone who is sick or has been in contact with someone who has СOVID-19— including players, family members, coaches, staff and spectators — should not attend practices or games. Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.
If someone does get sick during practice or at a game, we have plans in place to isolate that person and have a parent/guardian transport them to their home or healthcare facility. If your student-athlete is removed, they will need either a note from a licensed medical professional, or have no fever for 72 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication, or cleared by the County Health Department (if tested positive).
This letter must be signed by the student-athlete and the parent, along with the COVID waiver, and returned to the coach before they will be able to practice. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jean Shearer, Athletic Director at email@example.com.
