The Covid-19 Pre-Participation Health Questionnaire must be printed, filled out, and signed by both parent and student. The form must be turned in on the first day of workouts.
For the longest time Millbrook Athletics has had a proud tradition of excellence on the fields, on the courts, on the courses, on the mat, and in the pool. A good deal of credit for that excellence should go to the parents of our student-athletes for bring up such fine, hardworking, respectful, and honorable people that our coaches are lucky enough to get to interact with each day. On behalf of all our coaches, administration, and teachers we would like to thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
As you know spectators have been limited based on decisions from Governor Cooper’s office and decisions made by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA). Those restrictions were further “tightened” by WCPSS, limiting inside numbers to no more than 25 spectators and outside numbers to 100 per event. All of these above decisions were made in the best interest of our student-athletes. No one likes these limitations (student-athletes, parents, coaches, administrators – the list goes on), and I assure you that these decisions were thoroughly thought through and not made in haste.
It was decided that for outside events that the limit on spectators would be 100 immediate family members of the home team. At one time the make up of the outside crowd was going to be 50 from the home team and 50 from the visiting team. There was a lot of discussion between all the county athletic directors and the county principals about who should be allowed to spectate, and it was eventually changed to 100 immediate family members of the home team only. I cannot speak for others, but I strongly advocated for these changes because it was in the best interest of our student-athletes and allowed more guaranteed opportunities for our own families to see their son/daughter play.
Here’s what I need you to help me with moving forward so we can enjoy our student-athletes at home contests (especially the seniors!) for the rest of this year:
This COVID pandemic is not fair to anyone associated with high school athletics. My goal is to make it the best it can possibly be for all our student-athletes and fans, and I promise you I’m doing as much as I possibly can to make it happen. I appreciate your time and support in this matter.
If an athlete sees a physician for answering yes to any of the daily screening questions, this document must be reviewed and signed by a licensed physician prior to returning to play.
