The Georgia High School Association and the Sports Medicine Advisory Council have issued the following new guidelines which became effective Monday:
¬ Workouts are conditioning only (intra-squad competitions are allowed but competition between schools is illegal); sports specific equipment (including balls) may be used and should be sanitized between sessions.
¬ Groups of 50 (re-grouping of participants is allowed if can be done safely), including coaches, for workouts per sport at any given time at the campus/facility.
¬ Cheerleading, Softball and Volleyball tryouts are allowed.
¬ Mask and face covering are recommended.
¬ Each student should have their own personal water bottle (water bottles may be re-filled during workouts). No use of water fountains or “water cows” is allowed.
¬ All previous guidance and restrictions remain in place.
FOOTBALL- No helmets, shoulder pads, girdles, knee or thigh pads can be worn at any time. The face mask and face covering recommended guideline does not refer to helmets or helmet face masks, but to the use of cloth face covering/masks to help slow the spread of Covid-19.
