Good morning and Happy New Years,
The Athletic Department prays that you and your families are staying safe and doing well. We know that many of our athletes are dealing with this Pandemic in real ways. Please know that we are here for you and will continue to lift you and your family up in prayer.
CIF has continued to share a colored tier map of where sports are at as far as being able to compete. The next update from CIF is scheduled to be announced on January 19. We continue to trust God that He already knows the outcome of this year and that His plans are perfect.
Due to the very high increase in C19 numbers (especially in L.A. County), our teams continue to stay in Phase 1 of our return to play protocol. Phase 1 allows for teams to work out via Zoom (no in-person practice). While we understand that there are some schools, club teams, etc., practicing/playing right now, Southlands Christian’s decision to not allow in-person practice is based on government guidelines/regulations. Our decision is also based on doing what is best for the health of our entire school body. We are grateful for your support and understanding as we deal with this very unusual 2020-21. We will update again next week once CIF has made their announcement. In the meantime, stay Southlands Strong! Please do not hesitate to reach out should you need anything! firstname.lastname@example.org
