Here are some helpful links and information about COVID-19 related items and how they relate to M-A Athletics.
(Note: start dates found above are dependent on sports being in their corresponding color tier)
Does my kid still need a physical? Yes, but we can accept a tele-visit. The doctor’s note just needs to say the patient’s name, when they were seen and that they are cleared for participation in all sports. Physicals are due one week before tryouts/practice start date. The rest of the clearance packet must be submitted before conditioning starts (if applicable for the sport).
Can my kid still get PE credit if their sport is cancelled? If competition for any given sport is cancelled, Seniors will still get PE credit if they participate in conditioning with their team and they are cleared on SportsNet. If their team is not conditioning in the off-season, they will still get credit if they played on any team within that sport last year and they signed up on SportsNet to play again this year. Seniors will NOT get PE credit if they did conditioning and then decided not to play that sport (if we are allowed to compete). This policy is for current Seniors only; we do not know about Sophomores and Juniors yet, and no Freshman gets PE credit waived anyway as they all must be enrolled in PE.
How do I sign my child up for conditioning? Just fill out the clearance packet on SportsNet. The coach will then be in touch with details on when and where they will meet.
What precautions are you taking to ensure the safety of my child during conditioning/tryouts/practices? See pg. 13-14 here. This pertains to COVID precautions, not precautions we take to avoid injury.
Can my kid play club and for M-A at the same time? Can they play two sports at M-A at the same time? No. New guidelines from 12/14/20 prohibit participation on more than one cohort/team at a time.
