It is hard to believe, but Fall Sports officially begin this week as Girls Golf starts practice on Friday, July 31st. The rest of the Fall Sports will begin on Monday, August 3rd. As we wrap up the summer, we would like to get out some final information.
As most of you are aware, Governor Holcomb signed an executive order requiring masks in public spaces under certain conditions. After meeting with district administration, the Athletic Department’s policy will require masks for athletes and coaches at athletic activities when social distancing is not possible. This does not include during rigorous exercise. During our last week of all athlete conditioning, athletes will be expected to socially distance before and after workouts. As long as social distancing is followed, athletes will not be required to wear a mask. Coaches will be required to wear a mask only when they are not able to socially distance. This policy only applies to athletic activities and is subject to change. More guidance about the district’s masking policy for nonathletic activities will come at a later date.
Please remember to register your athlete with Final Forms and complete all necessary paperwork. It will be required for athletes to have all required paperwork properly submitted before they can begin practice. If you have questions about Final Forms, the Athletic Department will be available during registration on Thursday, July 30th from 8 am to 7 pm to assist in any way possible. If you have not yet registered for Final Forms, you may do so by CLICKING HERE. As a reminder, the IHSAA is not requiring a new physical for athletes that turned in a valid IHSAA physical last year. We are only requiring a signed waiver form that can be found on Final Forms.
As mentioned earlier, Fall Sports start within the next week. If you are interested in playing football, girls golf, volleyball, or running cross country, please contact the Varsity coach for more information.
