Hello Bear Creek Families,
This has been a crazy year with many changes in a short time since even last week. I am posting the most current information sent out by CIF/SJS. and Lodi Unified. We have had to change our schedule from a Season 1 and Season 2 format, to a tiered format. The California Dept of Health and CIF ruled that each League form their own schedules within the dates and tiers allowed.
Another change we need to make you aware of: Current CDPH guideline state: “Athletes and Coaches should cohort by team, and refrain from participating with more than one team over the same season or time period”. CIF interpretation is students and coaches WILL/SHALL participate in only one cohort at any time.
The Purple tiered sports the SJAA will run first are: Cross Country, Men's Golf, Women's Tennis and Men's and Women's swimming. Track and Field will be starting in mid April, as they share many athletes and coaches with Cross Country. Only Purple tier sports will be allowed to Practice as a complete team Cohort. Please Click Here
for the full tier list.
All other tiers can only condition at this time. They are bound to pods of 12 including the coach. All athletes must wear a mask and follow the guidelines for their sport. Each Athlete/Coach must use the Self-Health Assessment when meeting in-person, as directed by the district.
Each athlete must be cleared through athleticclearance.com and have a current physical for this school year. Once you have all that completed please email the physical and what sport your child is clearing for to email@example.com
Only cleared athletes and Lodi Unified Employees with a Self-Health Assessment will be allowed to access campus. All coaches are checking athletes in using this form as a safety measure this year. If your student does not bring this form with them, they will be asked to return home. If they display any symptoms on the assessment they are asked to stay home and email their coach.
I know this year has been a challenge at best, please know that we want to support all our athletes. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions and concerns.
