Social Distancing and Training:
We understand student-athletes want to stay active during this time. However, student-athletes should be advised that there will be no team practices of any kind while athletics activities are postponed. If families want their student-athlete to train, families should continue to follow CDC Guidelines and maintain social distancing at all times (maintaining a 6 foot distance in public) and wearing a mask if are unable to social distance in public (on their street or in a park).
