Welcome back to our student-athletes and their families! To all new and incoming student-athletes, welcome to our Bear Family! We have over 1200 student-athletes and 24 Varsity sports in our Athletic Department. We are hopeful that this pandemic does not deter anyone from pursuing their athletic interests, and we would love to see those numbers continue to grow! If you are interested in getting involved in a sport, conventional tryouts are not taking place right now. Please email coaches directly to express interest in getting involved.
As of right now, practices cannot resume due to county restrictions. Once they do, things will look a little more restrictive. The primary focus will be on individual drills and conditioning. Numerous parameters will be in place to safeguard our student-athletes and our coaches. We will be social distancing; there will be no contact and no shared equipment; we will be conducting a pre-screening process before every workout. All practices will take place before or after the distance learning day. Although things will look different, we are very excited to eventually see you again and welcome you back onto campus. I am confident that our coaches will work diligently to ensure that you are ready to compete when the time comes.
The good news is that we are very hopeful that our sports will all have seasons. CIF Southern Section worked meticulously to create a revamped 2020-2021 CIF calendar that preserves the sanctity of every season of sport so that teams can play full pre-seasons, regular seasons, and post-seasons. Our sincere hope is that we will get to see our athletes return to the field, court, pool, or track and don Bears proudly across their chests for another season.
Until then, please make sure that you are taking care of your athletic clearance process. In order to do that, all athletes will need a pre-participation physical to be done dated on or after June 2, 2020 in order to be valid for the 2020-2021. Once the physical is complete, please create an account on athleticclearance.com and upload the physical to your account.
