DISTRICT 205 GUIDELINES FOR SUMMER ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION IHSA PHASE 4
IHSA Phase 4 allows athletic activity to continue with strict social distancing and health and safety precautions and limitations. The premise of Phase 4 summer camps is to provide students and coaches an opportunity to start sport specific instruction. It is an opportunity to promote physical fitness and emotional connections with peers and coaches. Acclimation back into athletics is critical. Coaches and athletes may choose to continue preparing for their season at home via virtual meetings and personal workouts. Some coaches or athletes may choose not to take part at all for a multitude of reasons. Summer workouts are voluntary for all athletes and coaches. Summer workouts and camps are not mandatory and non-participation will not be held against any coach or student-athlete.
All safety guidelines must be followed. It is the sole responsibility of the coaches to adhere to all safety guidelines and requirements and any deviation of these guidelines, depending on severity may result in disciplinary actions.

Participation is voluntary for all students and coaches. Workouts are strictly limited to strength and conditioning activities; sports-specific skill instruction is prohibited during Phase 1 of the IHSA Return to Play Guidelines. We hope to see Phase 2 guidelines released later this summer.

PHASE 1 "RETURN TO PLAY" - WORKOUT SCHEDULES
It is the decision of each head coach if they choose to run summer workouts and to set the schedule. Please reach out to the head coach of a program if you have any questions regarding schedules. Coaches will need to know their team numbers in order to group student-athletes.
