High school sports this fall remain in question, but this week, some schools in San Luis Obispo county are beginning practice. Paso Robles school board approved limited practice Tuesday night. Tom Harrington told the board about the plan developed by high school athletic directors in the county.
Harrington says high school athletic directors created their document from others which have been used in the county. It calls for safe distancing and other precautions. Students would change at home rather than use the school locker rooms.
So practice may begin, but it’s quite different than what most athletes are accustomed to.
Phase 2 would be implemented in mid-July. It relaxes the rules a little, but still, athletes would not be able to touch the ball. The school board approved that plan Tuesday night, so Paso Robles athletes were able to begin practice yesterday. Other school districts are expected to implement similar plans, because the athletic directors at each high schools developed them.
