    No thank you for doing what a teacher does when your kids are stuck at home. =]

    I just heard from the yearbook editor. One of her staff is on the water polo team.
    Fall sports has been pushed out to winter.
    That gives the high school athletic league more time to figure out how to do sports safely.

    Just heard at the school's webinar for the parents, that fall sports has been merged with Winter, for a 2 season year (Winter + Spring).
    Winter season starts on Dec 14.
    Personal feeling is that December is a "maybe," depending on the virus rate in the county.
    There will be contention for the same facilities, so individual sports may have less games and/or weekend games, which we rarely had.
    - Football and soccer, for the football/soccer field.
    - Girls volleyball and boys and girls basketball for the gym.

    @ac12, we are still on track for a "normal" season start here. I talked to the Superintendent of schools briefly last night but didn't bring up the sports side, just complimented him on the job they are doing in light of the situation. (giving him my support)

    We are "distance learning" for the 1st quarter, till Oct 9. So the campus is effectively closed.
    2nd quarter is TBD, depending on the county's infection numbers.
    They are getting ready to do a hybrid on-campus + distance (for those that don't want their kids on campus).
    In the hybrid model, the distance learning will probably be taken over by the district.

    The principal said no large groups, so very little spectators at sport games.
    And likewise, no concerts and plays.

    I really hate to see High School kids lose their senior year. College is a bit different. They can extend another year of eligibility. One year, when I played in college, three of the five starters on the O-line were in grad school: Law, Business, and Education.

    Currently an athlete has 5 years to complete 4 years of eligibility. The NCAA could simply make that 6.
