CMS will announce work-out scheds within the week

Aug. 14. After the NC High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) announced significant changes to sports schedules for the 2020-2021 school year, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools says it will share its workout schedule for student-athletes and staff within the next week.

Issues to resolve include how many athletes and staff can gather at one time both outside and inside, as well as restrictions on use of certain training and athletic equipment, protective face coverings and temperature checks.

NCHSAA guidance allows school districts to establish more restrictive procedures than those provided by NCHSAA but not less.

“Now that the High School Athletic Association has provided its proposed schedule, we have the guideposts we need from a scheduling standpoint to develop proposed dates for when our student-athletes can once again participate in workouts led by coaches and staff,” said CMS Athletics Director Sue Doran.

Discussions with principals and athletic directors have been ongoing as to how and when to best return athletic teams to CMS campuses for workouts. Additional input from those groups provided after the NCHSAA’s schedule changes will be included to help inform CMS’ decisions.
