Unit 4 Summer Athletics Update

Fri, 06/12/2020 - 3:28pm

On June 6, we were thrilled to receive IHSA guidance permitting student-athletes to start voluntary strength and conditioning workouts.  The District values all student-athletes and coaches and appreciates the ongoing support from friends and family members. We convened a small committee to determine next steps to ensure the safety of our student-athletes and coaches. 

Currently, the IHSA allows athletics and activities to resume with strict social distancing, health and safety precautions, and limitations. The current summer camps philosophy is to provide students and coaches an opportunity to reconnect. It is an opportunity to begin to return to normal, however it is not a return to normal. Some coaches or athletes may choose to continue preparing for their season at home via virtual meetings and personal workouts, and that is acceptable.  Some coaches or athletes may choose not to take part at all for a multitude of reasons and that is acceptable as well.  No summer camps can be deemed mandatory nor can participation be held against any coach or student-athlete.
