From Coach Blade: Football Update

Friday, May 8, 2020

Dear Indy Football Family,

I hope this email finds everyone healthy and safe.  We all have a lot of questions moving forward so I will attempt to pass on what I know at this point.

  1. We are targeting June 1st as our start back date. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
  2. When we return, there will be restrictions.  These restrictions include but are not limited to the following:
    1. No more than 10 in a group at a time
    2. Continue 6 ft apart social distancing
    3. Face masks when working indoors
    4. wiping down equipment after every use
    5. we most likely will not use the locker room during June and just have kids show up before their designated time and leave once workout completed.
    6. Hopefully things go back to “normal” when we return after dead period.
    7. As of now, the TSSAA still has not changed dead period or start of season. Dead Period is scheduled June 20-July5.
  3. We will have a date in the next couple of weeks where kids may stop by and pick up remaining items in their lockers to be taken home and cleaned.
  4. I will also try and pick up webstore orders from Matthews Team Sports by then so kids can pick those up as well.
  5. For the incoming freshmen, we will try and work out a time for a zoom informational meeting as we get closer to June.
