Parent Notice: Summer training protocols per District reopening policy – please read

Soccer Parents and Players,

The Boys soccer coaching staff will be confirming open gyms and outlining soccer specific protocols soon.  The following is the board approved approach to summer training and the required forms.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact Coach Sostack at james_sostack@etownschools.org.  Go Bears!

The Elizabethtown Area School District unanimously approved its Athletic Health and Safety Plan at its June 23, 2020, regularly scheduled school board meeting. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic, the plan outlines how the District plans to safely resume fall sports activities later this month. The plan conforms to the Pennsylvania Department of Education mandate that school districts board-approve an athletic plan prior to the resumption of school district affiliated athletic activities.

The Athletic Health and Safety Plan goes into effect immediately and is for the fall sports season only. Per the Athletic Health and Safety Plan, EASD fall athletic programs will begin allowing voluntary off-season workouts for fall sports ONLY on Monday, June 29, 2020. In order to participate in the voluntary off-season workouts, TWO FORMS need to be signed: 

  1. Consent to Participate and Emergency Contact form – this form must be completed and turned in to the coach before the first workout that you attend.

  2. Pre-workout Health Screening form – this form must be completed and turned in to the coach before EVERY workout that you attend.

EASD – Participation Consent and Release

If the guidance from the state changes, our Athletic Health and Safety Plan will be updated accordingly and re-communicated with our families.

If you have any questions about the Athletic Health and Safety Plan, please contact William Templin, EASD Director of Athletics, by email at william_templin@etownschools.org.
