Below are the plans for return after TMSAA mandated dead period ends on July 5, 2020. Beginning after the dead period, student-athletes will be allowed to pass and share the athletic ball used for the appropriate sport (i.e. football players will be allowed to pass footballs, volleyball players will be allowed to pass volleyballs). All athletic equipment will be sanitized daily, however sanitizing during practices is not possible.

Players are expected to come dressed in their own workout clothes and bring their own water or sports drink to keep hydrated. NO LOCKEROOM FACILITIES WILL BE AVAILABLE.

Rising 6th graders and any new athletes will need to make sure a sports physical has been completed and turned in along with both COVID-19 waivers.
