After thoughtful consideration and consultation with the administration of Damien High School, and out of an abundance of caution, we are disappointed to share with you that will be postponing our summer athletic camps until further notice. Although it was a difficult decision, we felt the safety and health of our student-athletes and coaches is our primary priority. Everyone who is a part of Damien Athletics was excited to get our student-athletes back on campus and the hard work shown by our Fall sport student-athletes and coaches these last two weeks was inspiring.
We will continue to monitor all aspects of a safe return to summer athletics, await an announcement from CIF on the sports calendar for 2020-21, and look forward to resuming as soon as possible.
Your patience and support are truly appreciated during these times.
I am happy to be able to write to you to share that we have been given guidance that will allow us to resume on campus athletic activities. We are extremely excited to get back to work, but with that comes some new guidelines to ensure the health and well-being of everyone involved.
We will begin a phased return to activity beginning Monday, June 29.Please consult the calendar included for information about a specific sport and register soon.
Please know that the health and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff will be our number one priority. Damien High School is taking its direction and guidance from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, CIF State office, and the Los Angeles County Health Department. As such, this guidance is evolving and changing, and our policies and procedures will continue to be updated as new guidance is given.
For the time being, many things will be different from the way things were conducted in the past and your patience is appreciated as we all get used to this new way of life.
Attached to this message you will find many resources. I ask that you take some time to familiarize yourself with them and please let us know if you have any questions.
