Ashe County High School Fall Sports Update

 

 

 

Today we learned that the NCHSAA Board of Directors approved the transition into Phase Two for schools that are holding summer conditioning and workout activities.

 

Some of the changes with Phase Two includes the following:

  • Sharing of some equipment is permissible within small groups/pods
  • Wearing protective equipment (pads/helmets) remain prohibited
  • Equipment must be disinfected frequently, and it REQUIRES disinfecting prior to use by another pod.

Phase Two will become effective on August 3, 2020.  For the complete document, click on the link below.  The changes are highlighted in gray.

 

NCHSAA Phase Two Guidelines

 

We plan to continue hosting VOLUNTARY conditioning sessions for Fall Sports.  We plan to communicate with those groups specific changes as we move forward.

 

In the meantime, the start date for Fall Sports at this time has been pushed back until at least September 1st.  Just a reminder that if you have not registered your child for the 2020-2021 school year, please click on the link below.

 

ACHS Family ID Athletic Registration Instructions

 

I am encouraged by today’s update from the NCHSAA.  We will continue to follow these guidelines as our summer conditioning sessions continue with the hope that educational based athletics will resume here in Ashe County very soon.

 

Have a great evening,
