activities until Monday, November 30 th , our department must adjust the Winter sports’
schedule accordingly. All middle school girls’ basketball games scheduled through
November 30 th are cancelled. Currently, those games will not be rescheduled.
To meet the PIAA’s mandatory practice requirements, our Winter sports teams’ first day
for official practice is Monday, November 30 th . Teams’ first scrimmage date will now be
Saturday, December 5 th and the first day for competition will be Thursday, December
17 th . Scrimmages scheduled after December 5 th will not be impacted.
Tryouts for each team are subject to change due to the modified schedule. Our coaches
will communicate all changes to their schedules as needed. Please reach out to
coaches with questions regarding their specific schedule adjustments, including
modifications to tryouts or at-home training suggestions during the extended break from
activities.
