Youth Sports

Why are youth sports on hold during the statewide freeze, Nov. 18 – Dec. 2?

Recreation youth sports have different public health guidelines than K-12 school sports and the location of the sports is also a factor in what must be canceled. The district’s decision to pause all youth sports meets the intent of the Governor’s two-week freeze, and nearly all offerings must be closed. Please check back for updates.
