It is important that with any decisions that are made we focus on the question, what do we need to do to ensure the "safety" of the athletes, coaches and all personnel? Having said that and after many discussions with school administrators, LMS has decided to offer an intramural program to students on the days students have in person learning. Guidelines are listed below for this program along with the sign up link. As disappointing as this decision might be to some of you, we have chosen to move forward and make the best of a difficult situation. Thank you.
Some key points to consider before signing up will be:
*The days a student has in school instruction will be the days they can attend the intramural program.
*Face masks/coverings will be worn when appropriate.
*Locker rooms will not be available
*Students should wear their own appropriate workout clothing (do not share clothing), and individual clothing/towels should be washed and cleaned after every workout.
*Hand sanitizer/ Disinfectants will be at all sessions.
*All students shall bring their own water bottle. Water bottles must not be shared.
*Sidelines/benches - Appropriate social distancing will need to be maintained on sidelines/bench during an activity
*Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer, especially after touching frequently used items or surfaces.
*Avoid touching your face.
*Sneeze or cough into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.
*No handshakes/high-fives/fist bumps.
*Personal equipment is also encouraged for these sessions and should not be shared. Common personal sports equipment examples:
· Water/hydration containers (no water will be provided at sports events)
· Athletic gear – practice and competition
· Safety equipment (per sport)
· Balls, gloves, mouth-guards, towels, sports shoes, etc.
*LMS will have sports equipment that will be the responsibility of the adults to track and sanitize after use.
*Student-Athletes will be responsible for reporting health and communicating needs to the coaching staff.
*Student-Athletes who cannot practice these expectations will be put on participation probation until proper levels of hygiene/sanitation can be established.
*Student-Athletes will be responsible for maintaining safe practices outside the athletic day, minimizing exposure to outside persons and places. People who cannot maintain or practice this expectation will be suspended from play.
*We all will practice disinfecting frequently used items and surfaces as much as possible.
*We will start all activities to be limited to conditioning, strength training, agility, and individual skill development. *Individual sport specific activities and equipment will be allowed, such as individual dribbling and shooting.
*We will follow MPA/CDC guidelines as far as what will be allowed per intramural as far as play.
*Students and adults should practice frequent hand washing when in contact with others or with equipment.
*PEOPLE WHO FEEL SICK SHOULD STAY HOME ***Do not go to the activity
*Contact and follow the advice of your medical provider.
