Resumption of Winter Athletics

Dear Families,

We are writing with an update regarding the winter athletic season that was temporarily suspended last week due to a significant increase in COVID cases among WPS athletes in a very short period of time.  Earlier today, staff from WPS and the Wellesley Health Department met to assess our current status and review possible mitigation steps that could be taken to resume winter athletics.  From that meeting, we all agreed that winter athletics could safely resume based on adherence to the following accommodations:

  • Locker rooms will not be used as storage areas for personal belongings. Instead they will only be used as changing areas that will be available before practices and contests but not during or after. All social distancing and mask policies must be used while in the changing room area. This is intended to reduce the amount of time the students are in the locker rooms together.  The athletes will simply enter, change, and leave for their practice or competitions.
  • The Hockey locker rooms at the Boston Sports Institute (BSI) will not be used at all. Athletes must come to the facility dressed. Coaches will relay further guidelines and information.  This is the same practice we followed last year with great success.
  • Student athletes and coaches that are indoors must continue to be masked.
  • While riding on a bus, students should remain as distanced as possible, masks must be worn, and windows must remain open.  Additionally there is no eating or drinking allowed while riding on the school bus.
  • Spectators will be limited to two adults per rostered student athlete at all home athletic contests. Away contests and neutral site venues will have their own guidelines. This information will be made available as we are informed by our opponents.
  • Athletes and coaches who are experiencing symptoms should not attend contests or practices.
  • We are currently working to reschedule the contests that were postponed during the pause.

We will resume all practices tomorrow (Tuesday) with outdoor competitions to begin on Wednesday and indoor competitions to begin this Friday.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we worked our way through this complex moment with our current health crisis.

Coaches will be in touch with their teams about details for their next meetings.

We thank you again for your support of our student athletes.

Sincerely,

Jamie Chisum

Principal

Physicals Due for Winter Sports

The issue with the Registration site has been resolved.

If you were having trouble registering your student, please try again.

Please also submit an up to date physical exam using the steps below:

 

Winter sport physicals are due in the Nurse’s Office by Monday, November 15.

All student-athletes are required to have a current physical examination on file in the Nurse’s Office before a student can try out, practice or participate in a sport as required by the MIAA guidelines.  

The Athletic Office or individual coaches will not accept physical examination reports. 

If your student has a current physical examination on file in the Nurse’s Office and it is NOT due to expire you do not need to provide another copy.

If your student’s physical exam expires during the sports season, your student will no longer be able to participate until a new physical examination has been obtained and is on file in the Nurse’s Office.

PLEASE NOTE: Late submission of physicals delays the student from any athletic activity until all the registration requirements are completed.  

Please note the nurses will NOT be available on Monday, November 29, which is the first day of winter sports practices.
