Athletic/Activity Summer Participation Guidelines 

*All activities must maintain social distance standards of 6 feet. 

ALL PHASES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE!

Boone County continues the reopening of communities by relaxing the occupancy limitations and begins to resume mass gatherings on a limited basis. All interactions within the community are required to maintain physical distancing strategies. Mass gatherings of 50 individuals or less may resume. All mass gatherings are required to apply Social Distancing Requirements.

June 15 - June 22 (PHASE 1)

 - Voluntary conditioning and fundamentals will be emphasized. 

Weight Room - No Access 

Track - Groups of 10 or less will be allowed in various areas of the track. Speed, agility, and conditioning will be the focus. 

NO TRAVELING OR COMPETITIONS - This includes hosting other schools or athletes.  We are focused on maintaining stable groups of students from our school district.

Spectators - No spectators, if parents wait for their students they must remain in their vehicle.

June 23 - July 23 (PHASE 2)

Interactions throughout the community need to continue to maintain Social Distancing Requirements. Mass gatherings of 100 individuals or less may resume. All mass gatherings are required to apply Social Distancing Requirements. 

We will continue to hold workouts during this time. We will NOT hold it against athletes if they are not present, summer activities are voluntary.
