Eagles News · Great News! Southlands Christian Athletics will be starting November 2nd!


Southlands Christian Athletics is excited to announce the beginning of our 2020-21 season! We will begin our athletic training on November 2nd, 2020. We are currently in Phase Two of our Four-Phase plan.

Phase 2:

  • Workouts will be conducted outdoors in “pods” or cohort groups of students. Those pods will consist of the same 5-12 student-athletes to limit overall exposures (max of 12 per cohort group; no more than 24 student-athletes will be allowed at any one practice location). All indoor activities are prohibited during this phase.
  • Coaches may not move between the cohort groups for that specific day.
  • Focus will be on agilities, strength, and conditioning, with some individual skill sets.  Student-athletes will advance through this phase in a steady and progressive manner. It is understood that most athletes have been quarantined since March 2020 and may not be in the same physical condition they were then. Coaches will strategically implement drills that will allow the athletes to get back into “game shape” in a healthy and safe manner.
  • A minimum social distance of 6 feet between each individual is required at all times.
  • Equipment may not be shared during this phase. All equipment must be sanitized before and after each individual use. Sport balls and any other equipment that is typically shared are not allowed during this phase.
  • Physical contact is NOT allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, high-fives, hugs, handshakes, etc.
  • Proper face coverings are required at all times unless engaged in high-intensity aerobic activity. Masks should be readily available and put back on once the activity is over.
  • Groups are prohibited from gathering at entrances/exits to facilities. Loitering before or after practice is strictly prohibited. Student-athletes should arrive at the start time and depart immediately after practice concludes. 
  • Parents and any other non-team members will not be permitted into the practice facilities. Parents are encouraged to wait in their cars.
  • The Athletic Department is committed to praying for our program and each individual athlete during this phase.

Our Athletic Department takes the safety of our student-athletes and staff very seriously. All safety protocols will be strictly enforced. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in the suspension of all activities (Phase Zero).
