  1. COVID Guidelines: Students will need to self-temperature check before coming to school to practice or play.  The locker rooms can be used for changing purposes PM and for equipment drop off AM.  We will again try to limit the number of students in the changing area.  Students will be asked to socially distance while changing each day.  Currently masks will need to be worn when traveling on the bus to away games.   As we know from last year, guidance can change quickly, so please be prepared for any updated requirements.

  1. TRYOUTS: We would love to be able to keep everyone that comes out, but unfortunately, we don’t have the resources to do so.  Our coaches do their best to choose athletes who have displayed hard work, hustle, and talent during the tryouts. Please encourage your students no matter the outcome.  
  1. FOOTBALL PRACTICES:  During the first week, the football team will meet to get equipment, start conditioning, and review team requirements.   Pickup will be at 4pm each day 9/1 to 9/3 outside the gym.  Traditional practice will begin on 9/8.
