    Modifications for team transportation to and from athletic events may be necessary based on the current Pennsylvania Department of Education guidelines. This may include:

    • Reducing the number of students and coaches on a bus or van.
    • Using hand sanitizer upon boarding a bus or van.
    • Social distancing on a bus.
    These potential modifications will be determined by Sewickley Academy, our bus providers, the Department of Education, and state and local governments.
  • Social Distancing during Contests/Events/Activities:

    Sidelines/Bench Area
    Appropriate social distancing will need to be maintained on the sidelines or bench area during practices and events, as deemed necessary by the Academy, PIAA, and state and local governments.
  • Who Should be Allowed at Events?

    Only student-athletes, coaches, contest officials, events staff, medical staff, and security personnel will be allowed to attend events until the state and/or local governments lift restrictions.

    When restrictions are lifted and spectators are allowed the following shall occur:

    Seating areas, including bleachers, must adhere to social distancing requirements of at least six feet of spacing for anyone not in the same household. To assist with proper social distancing, areas will be clearly marked. 

    Spectators should wear face coverings (masks or face shields) at all times.

    Caregivers and spectators will be prohibited to enter the field of play or bench areas.

  • Other Important Information

    Activities that increase the risk of exposure to saliva will not be allowed, including chewing gum, spitting, licking fingers, and eating sunflower seeds.

    Avoid shaking hands, fist bumps, or high fives before, during, or after games and practices. Limit unnecessary physical contact with teammates, other athletes, coaches, officials, and spectators.

    If multiple events are to be held at the same facility, adequate time shall be scheduled between contests to allow for facilities to be cleaned and disinfected and to minimize interaction between athletes. 

    Simultaneous games or practices at Nichols Field may be conducted. Guidelines will be developed for the use of the bathrooms, the Snack Shack, and passageways.

    Establish protocols to limit entrance and exit traffic, designating specific entry to and exit from facilities with clear signage. 

    Stagger pick up and drop off times and locations for practice and events.

    Ensure that athletes are not congregating while awaiting pick up and to ensure congregation or crowding does not occur during drop off. 

    Guidelines will be developed for food and drinks served at all concession stands.

    When restarting competitions, games, scrimmages, and matches will be limited to teams in the region (PIAA District 7 and District 8 only). We can expand beyond regional play based on the number of COVID-19 cases outside of our region.
  • Positive Cases and Coaches, Staff, or Athletes Showing COVID-19 Symptoms

    What are the signs and symptoms of COVID-19?Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. The symptoms may range from mild to severe. 

    Symptoms may include:

    Fever or chills
    Cough
    Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    Fatigue
    Muscle or body aches
    Headache
    New loss of taste or smell
    Sore throat
    Congestion or runny nose
    Nausea or vomiting
    Diarrhea
    Constipation 

    What to do if you are sick?
    If you are sick or think you are infected with the COVID-19 virus, stay at home.  

    It is essential that you take steps to help prevent the disease from spreading to people in your home or community.  

    If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.

    Notify the school immediately (Division Head, Athletic Director, school nurse, athletic trainer, and/or coach).
    Academy administrators and health staff will determine if others who may have been exposed (students, coaches, staff) need to be notified, isolated, and/or monitored for symptoms.

    If a positive case of COVID-19 is diagnosed, contact tracing will be implemented by Academy administrators and health staff with the assistance of local health professionals and the CDC and DOH.

    What happens if a student or staff member becomes ill with COVID-19 symptoms during practice, an event, or during transportation to or from an event?

    We will make every effort to isolate the ill individual from others until the student or staff member can leave the school or event.

    If a student falls ill, their parent/guardian will be contacted immediately, and arrangements will be made for the student to be picked up.

    The ill individual will be asked to contact their physician or appropriate healthcare professional for direction.

    The facility where the sick individual was present will need to be disinfected immediately.

    When can a student or staff member return to athletics following a COVID-19 diagnosis or clearance?

    Students or staff must provide written medical clearance from their medical doctor, physician assistant, or CRNP.

    Return to athletics can begin once the individual is determined by a medical doctor, physician assistant, or CRNP to be non-contagious, fever-free (without fever-reducing medicine), has a vast improvement in respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath), and experiences no vomiting or diarrhea.
  • Education

    Students, parents, coaches, and staff will be educated on the following through posters, flyers, zoom meetings, emails, and phone calls:

    COVID-19 signs and symptoms

    Proper ways to limit exposure to COVID-19 (hand-washing, cough in your elbow, disinfect touched surfaces, social distancing, etc.)

    Guidelines for participation in summer workouts
    The purpose of this plan is to lay out a detailed and progressive return to physical activity for our student-athletes. This pandemic has caused our student-athletes to be away from their normal training routines for several months. Although many have probably stayed active on a daily basis, the intensity level, consistency, and duration of these workouts are unknown. Along with the unknown individual work capacity of each athlete, the start of this program in the heat of the summer creates the need for a structured progressive plan to ensure the health and safety of our student-athletes while continuing to following the best practices to mitigate the transmission and spread of COVID-19.

    This plan will follow the 50/30/20/10 rule that is outlined in the Korey Stinger Institute’s “Return to Sports and Exercise during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Guidance for High School and Collegiate Athletic Programs” document. This rule states:

    It is recommended that weekly conditioning volume be reduced by 50% from the uppermost volume on file in week one with a 1:4 or greater work-to-rest ratio (W:R) and 30% in week two with a 1:3 or greater W:R. Based on the protocol, the returning athletes can then return to normal training volumes and intensities based upon the professional judgment of the coach. For athletes who are new to the program, it is recommended that a minimum of a 20% and 10% reduction take place in weeks three and four, respectively. It is also recommended that the intensity (speed athletes are running) of any conditioning exercises not exceed the following to help decrease the risk of soft tissue injuries:
    • Week 1: 75%
    • Week 2: 80-85% (athletes should still have 2-3 gears left)
    • Week 3: 90-95% (athletes should have 1-2 gears left)
    • Week 4: 95-100% (athletes should have 1 gear left or be at top speed) Keep the number of full effort runs per workout at 4-6 (number of sprints decreases as the length of the sprints increases) and increase by 1 or 2 per workout.
    Hydration is an extremely important part of physical activity, especially in the hot and humid summer months. Since the

    COVID-19 virus is easily transmitted through respiratory droplets, the sharing of water bottles will be strictly prohibited. Each individual athlete and coach must bring their own water bottle(s). Athletes will have access to refill their water bottles at a no-touch hydration station in certain locations on campus.

    The plan for all sports with specific dates is as follows. (The outline of this plan was taken from the “UPMC Sports Medicine Playbook: Return to Sports During COVID19 Minimum Guidelines (High School).”)

    Education Phase

    Purpose
    To ensure proper education of the coaches and student-athletes on the policy and procedures of the Framework for the Reopening of Athletic Facilities and the Beginning of Athletic Activities.

    To develop leadership within each sports team that promotes inclusiveness, hard work, team spirit, and sportsmanship while supporting cohesive team play.

    To prepare student-athletes and teams for competition versus other schools in the WPIAL.

    To help student-athletes learn the lifelong tenets learned by playing on a team. 

    While capturing championships creates a tremendous thrill and a sense of pride, it is the journey that will leave a lasting effect on our students. The discipline and the perseverance learned along the way, the ability to win or lose with grace and humility, and the teamwork, sportsmanship, and joy of competition that are necessary for success are some of life's most valuable lessons.

    Guidelines
    • On the day a student-athlete is planning to attend a workout, a parent or guardian must take their child’s temperature prior to the workout.
    • A player with a temperature of 100℉ or higher will not be permitted to workout.
