Middle School Winter Athletics and Activities

Middle School Winter Athletics and Activities have begun! Welcome to our boy and girl athletes in volleyball, wrestling and the Scholastic Bowl.

Below you will find components of our plan to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 while encouraging participation in these activities.

  1. First, please vaccinate your children aged 12 and older! It is the safest, most effective way to prevent illness and limit the spread of the virus.
  2. Face coverings: Athletes may wear a face covering when involved in activity.
  3. Volleyball practices: coaches will provide time between practices to clean and sanitize.
    1. Hand Sanitizer and wipes must be out and available
    2. Practice gear will be cleaned daily
    3. Locker room use: change and exit
    4. Game Day: Travel in warmups/uniforms. Limit locker room use to decrease time in enclosed space.
  4. Wrestling:
    1. Provide plenty of ventilation, open doors in the room.
    2. Clean mats prior to and after each practice and match
    3. Hand sanitizer and wipes must be out and available

    5. Game Day: Travel in warmups/uniforms. Limit locker room use. Weigh in area must be in open space with limited numbers during the weigh procedure. (e.g., no more than 3 wrestlers at a time. Socially distance while waiting to step onto the scale.)
  5. Scholastic Bowl:
    1. Practice sessions: Ensure all participants wear masks. Social distance the team members in the classroom.
