KIUA 2020 FALL TERM SPORTS

Dear parents/guardians and students,

The athletic department would like to welcome you back the fall semester.  We are preparing for a fall sports season that will include high school volleyball for both boys and girls, middle school baseball for the boys, and middle school volleyball for the girls.  

We understand that there might be concerns about COVID-19 and participating in sports.  We are doing everything that we can to minimize the risks of contracting the virus while participating in sports.  You will be required to wear a mask while riding the bus to and from practice.  Our league, the WJAA, will be meeting during the last week of August to finalize protocols to allow for a fun and safe season.  

Practice will begin August 24 for high school volleyball.  Practices will be held on Monday (24), Wednesday (26), and  Friday 28).  We will practice from 9:00-12:00 and 13:00-16:00 at Ide gymnasium.  Middle school girls are welcome to join in the morning practice sessions.  The school bus will pick students up at Shintanabe station at 8:40 and the school at 8:45.  It will be very warm in the gym so please drink plenty of water before coming to practice and bring water and sports drinks to practice.  It would be good to bring extra clothes to change into as you will be very sweaty.  

Regular practices will begin with school.  Middle school baseball and volleyball will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning on  September 1.  High school volleyball will practice on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays beginning on September 2.   The high school girls will be coached by Mr. Blocksom, the high school boys will be coached by Mr. King, and we are in the process of finding coaches for the MS teams.  

More information regarding practices and games can be found on the sports calendar.
