To follow Governor Holcomb’s recent announcement of the state-wide mask mandate, the Cascade Athletic Department is putting the the following Mask Policy in place, beginning on Monday July 27th.
Masks MUST be worn by coaches and athletes when:
▪️ arriving at and leaving school buildings/facilities.
▪️attending team meetings that take place before, after, and during practices.
▪️not actively participating in practice/workouts (this includes…sidelines, benches, waiting in line for a drill, etc.)
▫️Masks may be removed when actively participating in strenuous activity (practice, workouts, games).
▫️Masks may be removed during hydration breaks.
▫️Proper social distancing should continue to be practiced, when possible. There will be many questions regarding masks as we get closer to the start of the Fall season and we will try to answer them and give our best explanations. Please be patient as we implement these new policies.
▫️Gaiters, face shields or buffs are recommended for athletes as they are easy to remove and re-cover during activities.
▫️Athletes and coaches, please continue to do your best to comply so that we can have a 2020-21 sports season.
