GLENDALE, CA – In-person athletic conditioning for fall sports resumed at Glendale Unified’s three comprehensive high schools, starting last week. Fall sports include football, cross country, water polo, volleyball, and cheer at Crescenta Valley, Glendale, and Hoover High Schools. Athletic conditioning takes place after school hours and participation is voluntary for athletes and coaches.
Prior to resuming athletic conditioning, schools were required to submit a plan, developed in collaboration with coaches, athletic directors, school administrators, and district staff, to be approved by Glendale Unified district leadership. All plans had to meet the guidelines provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Glendale Unified School District Guidelines for Reopening Athletics. All coaches participated in a COVID-19 Protocol Training for Coaches held on October 8 and October 12, and all student athletes were required to complete an academic participation packet, which included a physical form from a doctor, prior to participating in athletic conditioning. Additionally, each school provided the district with a supervision schedule and bathroom protocol for each sport.
“Athletics play a vital role in promoting teamwork, improving physical and mental health, and connecting our students with their school community and with each other,” said Glendale Unified Board President Dr. Armina Gharpetian. “We are happy to provide our student athletes with the opportunity to resume in-person conditioning, following all health and safety protocols.”
