Athletes and Parents,
On Sunday Governor Inslee placed further restriction in the state due to the COVID-19 virus. One of these restrictions was to stop all indoor athletic activity for school and recreational sports.
Based on current and future weather conditions, we have determined to postpone our Small Cohort Athletic activities until such a time we can accommodate sports indoors and outdoors.
I know this has been a frustrating process for you and you have a strong desire to participate in Cheney Athletics. While we took the time to make a detailed plan that would provide a safe environment for you to participate in, we ultimately determined that not being able to practice indoors restricted us too much for November and December workouts.
The WIAA and its member athletic directors meet regularly to discuss potential plans for the remainder of the school year. These plans are fluid as we lack any certainty about the virus and how it will spread. I am hopeful that we will have some level of athletics this school year and that you will be able to participate in something competitively.
I appreciate your patience and the grit you have shown relative to the pandemic and how it has affected you. We will overcome this crisis and we will play sports again.
