On April 30th, the OHSAA extended the current interscholastic athletics no contact period through May 31st. The OHSAA has provided a helpful FAQ sheet regarding the no contact period. We encourage parents to review this document. As a reminder, this no contact period applies to all interscholastic teams; not just spring sports. https://ohsaaweb.blob.core.windows.net/files/BulletinBoard/OHSAAUpdatesApril30.pdf
On April 29th, The Ohio Department of Health issued an order closing all schools and school facilities to K-12 students through June 30th. All BCSD athletic facilities (including the stadium, fields, batting cages, etc.) are closed per this order.
We will provide more information on what potential training might be in the month of June if the OHSAA no contact period expires on May 31st, however, the OHSAA has indicated that they will keep the no contact period in place for as long as the ODH close of school facilities order is in place. We are also looking into options for our student athletes who are participating in rehabilitation or injury prevention programs and hope to have an update on that in the near future.
We have updated our Athletics FAQ sheet with the information provided today: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ok6kTgJRLlmueCOBCw0s24AIW39JjA8XFzw05sJmK5o/edit?usp=sharing. Please take a moment to review these updates. Fall student athletes, please pay close attention to the guidance regarding fall sports academic eligibility; at this time, all OHSAA eligibility requirements are still in place for fall sports 2020.
Uniform/Equipment Drop Off:
Brunswick High School released grade by grade schedules for students to return textbooks, computers, calculators, etc. as well as to retrieve personal belongings. The athletic department will also be collecting uniforms and equipment during this same time in the front east. Any athlete who still has a uniform/s or equipment (regardless of season), should drop off these items at the scheduled times. The athletic uniform/equipment drop off dates/times follows the same grade by grade schedule BHS will be using for textbook drop off.
Please see information regarding athletics uniform/equipment drop off.
Please note, any uniforms or equipment that are not returned during these times will be applied to a student’s school fees. The fee/s will be removed once the uniform/s/equipment has been returned. Also, all uniform/s/equipment must be returned before a spring sports participation fee is refunded. We will be sending all returned uniforms to be professionally laundered; we respectfully ask that all uniforms be returned no later than May 18th so all items can be sent for cleaning.
Mr. Braskie will be communicating with middle school parents in the near future for those who ordered middle school track uniforms and how those can be picked up.
Stay Healthy. Stay Safe. Go Big Blue!
