Since the UHSAA Board of Trustees has approved moving forward with the fall prep sports season, the teams at Skyridge High School are beginning team practices and tryouts according to the state schedule.

     For all sports, district COVID-19 guidelines require athletes to provide their own water bottles. Participants will also be required to sign a symptom check-in sheet daily to verify whether they have been showing the type of symptoms associated with this virus.

     In addition, previously existing rules to register athletes and provide necessary health, insurance and emergency information remain in force. Go to UHSAA.org and click on “RegisterMyAthlete” for more information or use the link on the school website.
