Be aware these policies and procedures are mandatory for our athletes and coaches to follow. We are following Indiana DOE and the IHSAA recommendations, while also staying consistent with our high school. Please note that these procedures and start times remain tentative based on current health information provided by the state of Indiana, the ISDH and the IHSAA. This letter is lengthy, but extremely important. Please be sure to read each section of this document. Thank you for your time and for helping us keep our coaches and athletes safe!

  • ALL ATHLETES MUST BE REGISTERED FOR SPORTS USING FINAL FORMS ATHLETE REGISTRATION! Any athlete who attends practice without being fully eligible in final forms will not be eligible to participate. This can be found on the school’s website at http://www.perryschools.org/pm/athletics/finalforms/

Here are other precautions we are taking to keep our coaches and athletes safe, based on recommendations from the DOE and IHSAA:

  • Athletes/Coaches will complete a COVID self-screening questionnaire prior to each session while taking attendance.
  • If an athlete is not feeling well, please not send the athlete to a workout. If an athlete is diagnosed with COVID-19, please report that to your coach ASAP.

  • When practicing outdoors, athletes will not be required to wear a mask. Coaches will wear a mask when in close proximity to our athletes.
  • Any student who prefers to wear a mask while participating, provided it does not cause a health risk, will be allowed to do so.
  • When arriving and leaving workouts, all coaches and athletes will use provided hand sanitizer or will be asked to wash their hands.
  • Before and after each practice, equipment will be sanitized using a disinfectant spray.
