Starting July 6th, we will enter Phase 1 of the IHSAA return to play plan.
Remember: Summer workouts and practices are voluntary. Athletes will not be punished for missing workouts. If you have any of these signs or symptoms, you must stay home and continue monitoring your health. Additionally report your screening results to the coaching staff and Athletic Office, then contact your primary care physician for further guidance. We cannot stress this enough – IF YOU DO NOT FEEL WELL, DO NOT REPORT FOR WORKOUTS.
