CMS Announces Phased Return to Workouts for High School Student-Athletes
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 19, 2020 — Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools today announced a phased return to athletic workouts for student-athletes at CMS high school facilities beginning as early as Sept. 14, 2020.
The decision to adopt a phased approach for resumption of athletic activities included input from athletic directors and principals. The input was received both before and after the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s (NCHSAA) recent sports calendar changes. High school student-athletes’ return will be staggered, with sports teams returning based on the revised sport calendar announced by the NCHSAA and input from athletic directors and principals.
Cross Country and Volleyball will be the first high school sports to resume this fall, with workouts beginning as early as Sept. 14. After participants in these two sports return, CMS will evaluate readiness to bring back student-athletes from other sports. This evaluation period will include further input from athletic directors and principals and will guide how CMS moves forward with additional teams/sports resuming on-campus workouts.
CMS will provide future updates on when and which additional sports return to on-campus workouts.
In addition to the initial evaluation period upon resuming on-campus workouts, CMS will continue to monitor information such as statewide orders issued by NC Gov. Roy Cooper and Mecklenburg County health data as the district considers expanding the sports allowed to participate in on-campus skills development.
“We are pleased to announce a return to on-campus athletic activity for our high school student-athletes and staff,” said CMS Director of Athletics Sue Doran. “We understand the importance and impact of athletic participation and believe our phased approach will enable us to safeguard the health of everyone involved.”
CMS’ implementation will comply with NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and NCHSAA guidelines for enhanced safety measures and procedures for protecting student-athlete and staff health. Workouts will include such NCHSAA-mandated elements as limited numbers of student-athletes and staff allowed to gather at one time on athletic fields and inside facilities and restrictions on use of certain training and athletic equipment. Additional measures include mandatory social distancing procedures, wearing of protective face coverings, implementation of temperature checks and other health screenings, and more. NCHSAA guidance allows school districts to establish more restrictive procedures than those provided by NCHSAA but not less.
“CMS athletic directors, coaches, and staff are up-to-date on current health and safety guidelines and will be prepared to welcome our high school student-athletes back for skills development workouts under these guidelines,” said Doran.
Myers Park will continue to update you on our workout and practice schedules.
