COVID 19 Return to Play Information for July 6: Weekly Updates(7-5-20)

Student Athletes and Families:

We got a WIN!  Finally, after nearly 4 months of disappointment, we are approved to return on 7/6/20.  TOMORROW!  We promise we are doing so with caution and the highest degree of safety so that we don’t jeopardize our opportunity to continue to work with your children through sports. 

Business items:     It is Sunday, 7/5/20.   July 6th is Tomorrow and many activities resume. Attached is the Covid 19 Return to Play document approved by the health Department.  Thanks to all parents and coaches who have attended training sessions over the last 10 days to help themselves prepare but to also help us think of other variables we must consider.  Here are few highlights:

1)  You must bring a face mask and water bottle and wear clean gear.  If using the weight room, we would like you to bring a towel. If you have back to back practices, bring extra clothes.  No shared watering stations, so please bring a full bottle or you will need to leave campus unless your coach has some extras for you.  Mark them clearly with your name!

2)  The first 2 weeks are called Phase 1 in the return to play document.  It will focus on conditioning and ball skills.  There will be no contact and we will keep kids 10-12’ apart when exercising and 6’ when not.  Face masks must be worn when not exercising and coaching.   Kids can only be in GCS activities for 15 hours/week, including marching band, so we have a shared time report between athletics and band to monitor that.

3)  We will have hand washing stations for entry and exit, we will disinfect equipment after each use,  and we are disinfecting the facilities each evening.

4)  Phase 2 would eliminate the hours restrictions and reduce the distancing and would last until competitions begin on 8/15 for all sports but golf.  Golf will  be allowed competitions starting 8/3, as the sport is more suited for distancing.  Phase 2 is scheduled to start July 20, but our official practices don’t begin until 8/3. I would not be surprised if we remain in  phase 1 until 8/3, but we will see.  

5)  Please monitor your kids water and nutrition as we are out of shape and it will be hot   Hydrating does not just happen at practice, it is a 24 hour a day process for athletes..  Coaches are trained in heat acclimatization, so will progress in logical increments.  Please make sure you take the self health assessment agreement seriously.  Any symptoms or exposures to Covid, and kids should stay home and report it to their coaches.  

Here is the latest schedule of activities for GHS athletics for July 6th -18th with the entrance listed in parenthesis.

Items for you to secure and Bring with you every day: 

Reminder that will need your own water bottle and a mask for times when you are not exercising to participate in activities.  Please begin securing these items now and mark them clearly as yours.  If you do not have a water bottle, you will not be able to participate. We cannot allow anyone to use water stations or drinking fountains, so you must bring your own.  We are working on having water bottles for backup to give students, but you cannot plan on that.  We will have hand sanitation stations, but I encourage you all to bring pocket sized hand sanitizers.  A good idea option for an extra facemask is to cut off the sleeve of a tee shirt and pull it over your head around your neck.  I wear one when jogging and if it is unavoidable I have to run next to someone, I pull it up over my mouth and nose and then pull it back down when I am 30 yards away!

You will also need the following paperwork completed and submitted prior to participation:  

1)  new physical exam OR the waiver form WITH the health Questionnaire required by the IHSAA.

2)  Code of Conduct with insurance information and emergency information

3)  Cardiac Arrest/Concussion awareness form required by the state of Indiana

4)  Self Health Assessment Agreement.

These forms can all be found at goshenredhawks.org under the Athletic Forms tab or picked up at GHS.  For those using the waiver option for the physical, you must also complete the health questionnaire. My apologies for not being more clear on that.  Also, there is a back page to that form that many parents do not see.   

The athletic office will be the Main office for the next few weeks due to some construction. You can see Mrs. Schrock or Mr. Miller in the main office to get cleared for participation if you are not yet cleared.  THanks.

Physical Exam options;  Goshen Orthopedics informs us that IF you have a long delay to be seen by your primary care physician,, you can call them to make an appointment.  Tell them Dr. DeFauw suggested you call. 

Staff and Student Training:  GHS Athletic Trainers will visit student activities the week of July 6 to educate students on the expectations and answer questions.  You saw the list above, so they may not get to all in week 1.

Incoming Freshmen:  Welcome to GHS!  There is no better way to get acclimated to GHS than by getting involved in a sport team this July.  Please use goshenredhawks.org to look up information about your sports.  If you are not already on your coach’s communication list, email them to let them know you are interested.  We are planning to offer many opportunities in July for you to get acclimated to GHS, regardless of whether your sports are fall, winter, or spring.  

 Peace be with you, GHS!
