Eagles News · UIL Guidance on Summer Strength & Conditioning, Sport Specific Training, & Summer Camps


Eagle Nation,
 
We are hoping that everyone is healthy and safe and wishing you a great summer!
We are very happy that we will start getting to open some things up for the summer regarding our student-athletes. UIL is allowing us to begin Summer Strength and Conditioning Workouts and Sport Specific Training on June 8th for all student-athletes incoming grades 7th-12th. There are some stringent guidelines that all school districts will follow to ensure the health and safety of all athletes and staff. I will be sending out more information on this later this week or early next week once we have had a chance to meet and finalize the plan as a district.
 
I know there are many questions regarding this as well as the Summer Sport camps that we host each summer. Right now all we are able to do beginning June 8th is strictly the Summer Strength and Conditioning Workouts and Sport Specific Training for incoming 7th-12th graders. At this time we are not permitted to host Summer Sport Camps. We are also not permitted to have “open gym, open weight room” so this limits us specifically to the Summer Strength and Conditioning Workouts and Sport Specific Training. I know this is very confusing because you are all seeing Colleges and Different groups hosting camps and the ISD’s aren’t able to host them. This is due to TEA (Texas Education Agency) guidelines that state school facilities may not be used right now for anything other than Summer Strength and Conditioning Workouts and Sport Specific Training. The Colleges and other outside groups are not bound by the same restrictions as they are not governed by TEA. If and when these restrictions are lifted by TEA we can schedule our Summer Sport Camps but at this time we are not permitted to do so.
