    February 25, 2021

     

    Beginning the week of March 1, I am excited to begin a more normal practice routine for the Softball program. At this time, all workouts are planned for the softball diamond 3:30 - 5:30 Monday through Friday.

     

    (For families who wish to inquire about other sport programs, separate letters will be issued in the near future as we are able to add them to the schedule.)  

     

    Some required items to complete before the 1st :

    1. Complete all forms on Sportsnet including submission of a current physical exam.  For families completing Sportsnet for the first time, the process takes approximately twenty minutes.  If needed, please schedule for a physical exam as soon as realistically possible.  
    2. Complete the following Google Form to establish correct contact information. (This is a similar form used for Fall Conditioning and needs to be completed again.)  This form can be completed in less than five minutes.
    3. Athletic Waiver



    Beginning on the 1st, student athletes should be aware of the following :

    1) All student athlete drop offs will be in the student parking lot on Sequoia Avenue.  Athletes that drive themselves or walk to campus need to enter campus through the student parking lot.

    2) Any person with positive COVID symptoms should not come to school to participate.

    3) All coaches and athletes will be screened for signs/symptoms of COVID including a temperature check.  Any athlete demonstrating symptoms of COVID will be directed to A) not participate, B) isolate for 14 days, and C) contact their health care professional.  All athletes must wear a mask to approach the check in station.

    4)  At this time, all softball athletes must wear a mask throughout the duration of the workout.

    5)  Athletes need to bring their own water.  No hydration stations will be used.  Water bottles must not be shared.  Locker rooms will be used as restroom facilities only, no indoor space will be used for changing.

    6) Equipment can be shared among athletes within the program.  Proper disinfection techniques will be used both before and after each workout by the coaching staff.

    7) Coaches will escort their athletes to the student parking lot at the end of each day’s workout.  After each workout, all athletes must wear a mask as they leave campus.  It is highly recommended that athletes shower and wash their workout clothes immediately upon returning home.

    In addition, SMUHSD is creating a schedule to administer weekly COVID testing for all coaches and athletes.  At this time, district policy requires testing before competition begins. The schedule will be published as soon as it is created.

    February 10, 2021

     

    At this time, we are planning to restart both Boys and Girls Volleyball programs once the color tier for San Mateo County reaches red.  Coaches and I are hopeful that we will reach the red tier in the very near future. When the red tier is reached, we will begin workouts almost immediately.  For this reason, we are asking families interested in either program to begin their own preparation. 

     

    (For families who wish to inquire about other sport programs, separate letters will be issued in the near future as we are able to add them to the schedule.)  

     

    Under new CIF guidelines, athletes that join Volleyball will NOT be allowed to join other athletic cohorts (or pods) either on campus or with any club sport program in the community.  This new guideline is designed to keep all athletes as healthy as possible.

     

    Some required items to complete before workouts begin :

    1. Complete all forms on Sportsnet including submission of a current physical exam.  For families completing Sportsnet for the first time, the process takes approximately twenty minutes.  If needed, please schedule for a physical exam as soon as realistically possible.  
    2. Complete the following Google Form to establish correct contact information. (This is a similar form used for Fall Conditioning and needs to be completed again.)  This form can be completed in less than five minutes.

    When the red tier is reached, we will send out specific information regarding a workout schedule as well as guidelines for remaining safe on campus.  This information will go out to families that complete the Google Form (item #2 above).

    Girls on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 3:30 - 5:30

    PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING UPDATE SENT 1/8/21 REGARDING SPORTS

     

    January 8, 2021

     

    I hope everyone has had a restful winter break and had the opportunity to recharge for the new semester.  Many families have asked me about the possibility of returning to school, practice, competition, and some semblance of normalcy.  We are not there just yet, but I am able to see light at the end of the tunnel.  Beginning Tuesday, January 19, four Season I programs will be allowed to begin workouts: Cross Country, Girls Golf, Girls Tennis, and Swimming.  I am excited to begin a more normal practice routine for these programs.  If the Stay at Home Order is extended for San Mateo County, it will not affect the start of workouts for these programs; we will begin on the 19th.  

     

    (For families who wish to inquire about other sport programs, a second, separate letter will be issued later this month.)  

     

    Under new CIF guidelines, athletes that join one of these four programs will NOT be allowed to join other athletic cohorts (or pods) either on campus or with any club sport program in the community.  This new guideline is designed to keep all athletes as healthy as possible.

     

    Some required items to complete before the 19th :

    1. Complete all forms on Sportsnet including submission of a current physical exam.  For families completing Sportsnet for the first time, the process takes approximately twenty minutes.  If needed, please schedule for a physical exam as soon as realistically possible.  
    2. Complete the following Google Form to establish correct contact information. (This is a similar form used for Fall Conditioning and needs to be completed again.)  This form can be completed in less than five minutes.

     

    Beginning on the 19th, student athletes should be aware of the following :

    1) All student athlete drop offs will be in the student parking lot on Sequoia Avenue.  Athletes that drive themselves or walk to campus need to park in the student parking and/or enter campus through the student parking lot.

    2) Any person with positive COVID symptoms should not come to school to participate.

    3) All coaches and athletes will be screened for signs/symptoms of COVID including a temperature check.  Any athlete demonstrating symptoms of COVID will be directed to A) not participate, B) isolate for 14 days, and C) contact their health care professional.  All athletes must wear a mask to approach the check in station.

    4)  Athletes need to bring their own water.  No hydration stations will be used.  Water bottles must not be shared.  Locker rooms will be used as restroom facilities only, no indoor space will be used for changing.

    5) Equipment can be shared among athletes for these four sports.  Proper disinfection techniques will be used both before and after each workout by the coaching staff.

    6) Coaches will escort their athletes to the student parking lot at the end of each day’s workout.  After each workout, all athletes must wear a mask as they leave campus.  It is highly recommended that athletes shower and wash their workout clothes immediately upon returning home.

    In addition, SMUHSD is creating a schedule to administer weekly COVID testing for all coaches and athletes.  At this time, district policy requires testing before competition begins. The schedule will be published as soon as it is created.



    I look forward to watching many of the athletes return to campus in the next few weeks.  I know this is a lot of information and there are remaining questions.  Thank you in advance for your flexibility as some things are subject to change on short notice.  Coaches and I will inform families of changes in policies and procedures when needed.

     



    If you have any sport specific questions, please reach out to your specific sport coach.  Practice schedules are being finalized at this time.  That information will be published on the school website later this week.  A new competition schedule for each of the four programs will be published from the PAL office in the near future - depending on the length of the Stay at Home Order.
