Return to Play


Health, Safety and Mitigation — The health and safety of all student-athletes and coaching staff are paramount in our recommendations, as well as mitigating the spread of COVID-19. 

Provide Opportunity — We believe that athletics is important to the physical, mental, and social well-being of students. We aim to provide opportunities to our student athletes under the guidance of public health recommendations.

Recognition of Uncertainty — We will continue to utilize all available information to adapt our plan. Due to the fluctuating public health crisis, we understand that our plan needs to be flexible and will be revisited as needed to maintain safety.

Informed Decision-Making — This plan adheres to the policies, protocols, and procedures provided by federal, state, and local county officials. Guidance was also utilized from regional athletic associations.
