Athletics Update - August 14, 2020

August 14, 2020

We will allow non-contact sports (golf, tennis, cross country, volleyball) to progress into their competitive seasons beginning Monday. Groups in any one area still must be ten people or less, including the adult(s). Our Athletic Directors will work with their conference peers to determine socially distancing procedures for Cross Country.

Contact sports (football and boys/girls soccer) can continue to practice in groups of ten or less but cannot compete nor engage in any drills which lead to contact. We continue to be very pessimistic about our ability to structure a season for contact sports. Multiple schools (Highland, St. Ignatius, Walsh Jesuit) who have advanced their contact sports beyond the "group of ten" limit have experienced outbreaks of COVID. We will continue to follow the Cuyahoga County Board of Health's guidance in this and all realms.

*All students and coaches MUST wear face masks when traveling on one of our buses.
