This is an attempt to explain the KSHSAA 2020 Summer Guidelines as simply as possible. 
First and foremost - USD 200 has to follow national, state, and local guidelines dealing with the Covid-19. The coaches and the staff are doing everything we can to try to get back to some form of normality. We want to do this as quickly as possible, but yet keep the student-athletes of Greeley County Schools safe. 
KSHSAA is concerned about injuries to athletes coming off of what may have been a time of physical inactivity since the middle of March, and thus KSHSAA is REQUIRING all athletes to go through a two (2) week reconditioning period. This is for each individual athlete and they MUST go through the entire 2-weeks before they can begin organized competition under the guidance of the school’s coaches. This means they have to do this BEFORE they attend the coach’s 1-week team camp or before they can play in summer scrimmages. 
Mr. Finder has scheduled the weight room to be open Monday through Friday the first two weeks of June, then Monday through Thursday after that. He is asking next year’s 6-12th grade boys to attend from 6 to 7 a.m. and 6-12th grade girls from 7 to 8 a.m. He is planning on doing general conditioning as well as some weight lifting. YOU as an individual have to make the commitment to get the KSHSAA required 10 days in before you can participate in our coaches camp. Remember, the 10 days are per individual!!!! 
Winter and spring sports CANNOT have camps or work with their players between Aug. 3rd and Aug. 16th this year. This time is dedicated to fall sports so they can get their final preparations in. Fall coaches are encouraged to have their “team camp” the week of Aug. 10th to Aug. 15th. At this time, fall sports are going to start as normal on Aug 17th. Also at this time, the “Summer Moratorium” from July 1st to July 6th, has been waived for this year.
As coaches start to work with kids on either an individual basis or in small groups, the coaches and staff will make sure strict cleaning guidelines are followed. This may change how things are done or may slow some of the drills down, but it is for the safety of the kids. 
If you have any questions, feel free to call or email me. There is a Q&A document link to the KSHSAA web page below which has helpful information that it would be good for parents and students to read.
