Season A (B&G Cross Country, Football, G Softball, B Golf, and B Tennis were successful at Palmer and I loved getting to see our student-athletes compete!
As you may or may not know, the 2020-2021 CHSAA Sports calendar was approved by Governor Polis earlier this school year. Season B (B&G Basketball, Competitive Cheer, Hockey, G Swim & Dive, and Wrestling) is scheduled to start on January 4, 2021. What you may not know is that the variances we need in order to compete have not yet been approved.
We have been patiently waiting for the response to those variances. All I can tell you now is that we have a statewide Athletic Director Meeting on Monday. I hope I leave that meeting with answers for you. The outcome of that meeting will be posted on our website; www.phsterrors.org, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
I am anticipate information regarding an official start date. Once we get that, D11 Athletics and the Department of Health will be working together to determine when we can start pre-season for Season B.
Please know that we believe it will look a lot like the practices we offered in June and will hold the same rules as our recent practices. 1. Daily temp and symptom checks, 2. 10 athletes per group, 3. 100% mask wearing, even while working out, 4. socially distant (i.e. no scrimmaging or playing), 5. Focus on fitness and individual skills, and potentially some new restrictions.
In the meantime, we do ask that you start the registration process, if you have not yet done so. Palmer registration can be found at www.planeths.com. If you are new to Palmer, this school year, (except for 9th graders who started at Palmer in August) you will need to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to start the transfer process. This process can take several weeks.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Talk to you soon!
