RSU #89 ATHLETICS

"Return to Play" Plan for summer 2020

RSU #89 is in the process of resuming interscholastic athletics for students in grades 5 through 12. This letter and information packet is to provide families with details for return to play. The plan follows guidance from the Maine Governor’s Office, Maine Center for Disease Control, Maine Department of Education, Maine School Management Association, and the Maine Principal’s Association.

The plan will have two phases, with the Phase I starting on Monday, July 6th, 2020. Practice schedules will be distributed by individual coaches and posted on the Athletics Facebook Page (search #GOCougarsKMHS). Each phase will focus on strength and conditioning exercises as well as increasing stamina to help prepare for return to play. Physical distancing will be in effect during both phases of this plan. It is also important to remember that these workouts and exercise programs are completely voluntary.
