There could be adjustments to games based on what other schools decide to do with their athletics program. Physicals must be brought to the first practice or athletes cannot start. They are required to have a 5 day acclimatization period before they can wear full pads. Equipment hand out will take place on Tuesday, August 4th during practice. There will also be a parent meeting at some point within the first 2 weeks.

1. Wear masks to and from practice and keep masks on until told by coaches that they are not needed during practice/games.

2. Bring symptoms screening checklist to each practice.
