UCHS School Athletics Update (11-09-2020)

As you may have heard, season one sports (fall) are still scheduled to start in December.   In an effort to provide proper conditioning for some sports, outdoor sports, the district is authorizing the establishment of AAU club teams for Cross Country, Football and Field Hockey. Once all health and safety protocols are in place, these three teams may start with Phase 1 conditioning programs on site starting on or after Monday, November 16th.

Attached are some of the guidelines we have been given in draft form for the start of these three sporting teams.  Over the next week or more we will be working with our coaches, athletes, parents and to make sure all are clear on what is and is not permissible. All should know that these conditioning days are voluntary for both athletes and coaches.   

Each athlete will need to purchase a $14 dollar AAU insurance card.  Should a family not be able to afford one, the school and coaches will work with AAU to provide the athlete with one for free. Athletes participating in these team conditioning opportunities will need to provide their own transportation to and from school. The actual activities are not school sponsored, but in partnership with AAU clubs wanting to use the school facilities approved by the district.  

We will hold a virtual meeting for all three sports and meetings for these individual sports prior to them starting. We will be sending out the Zoom meeting invites once established.  

I am sure the conditioning start of some sports will likely draw some questions: why these sports and not others? Why are we starting conditioning with some teams when we don’t even have school open for student learning? We will address these questions as best we can when we hold the Zoom meetings later in the week.  As a reminder, this is a phased-in-process for certain teams to be able to condition sooner before the official start later in December.  

We will keep everyone informed as we put together plans for the voluntary start for these three AAU teams.
