Athletics Dept. Plans for Resumed Sports
By Rick Schonely, Sports Reporter
Molokai High School athletics leadership is excited to be able to resume athletic workouts and practices with COVID-19 safety guidelines and protocols set forth by the Department of Education and Department of Health. Six sports can begin by the end of this month, with exact start dates to be announced.
“We highly encourage our spring sport student-athletes to update their current physical form and consent form during this time to be eligible to practice,” said Athletic Director Lee DeRouin. “Student athletes can pick up these forms at school during the day from [myself] or Athletic Trainer and at milsports.org or molokaighischool.com. Student athletes can return the forms to the Athletic Department and select their spring sport of interest.”
The mandatory spring sports parent meeting will be held virtually on Wednesday March 24 at 5 p.m. The Athletic Dept. will be sending out the link as we get closer to the date. This meeting will cover the COVID-19 guidelines, concussion, heat illness and risk liability video.
Currently, the Athletic Dept. will be working on these guidelines and with coaches to safely open spring sports workouts on Friday, March 26 or Monday, March 29 to our student athletes. Spring sports include girls Softball, boys baseball, boys and girls tennis, boys and girls track and field, boys and girls judo (conditioning only) and boys volleyball.
