Athletic plan to be presented to school board this week

Santa Rosa County Superintendent Tim Wyrosdick is presenting a plan for high school athletics to the school board Thursday morning.

The plan involves the start up of summer workouts for high school teams.

If approved, those workouts are expected to begin later this month.

And June 15 is looking like the date that begins.

Earlier today, Escambia County’s school district announced workouts for its athletes will begin that day. But the county won’t allow games of any type to take place until July to allow time for conditioning.

Athletes will be allowed to use the weight room, gymnasium and athletic fields. However, social distancing protocols and proper sanitation measures will be utilized as the COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing.

Spring sports came to a halt in March because of the pandemic. The season was canceled in late April.

Athletes use the summer months to get a jump on preparation for the upcoming season. That activity normally begins in June.

Navarre athletic director Scott Murphy said last week that he expected June 15 to be the earliest possible start date for athletics. And that appears to be the likely date based on Escambia County’s decision today.
