COVID 19 Notes

The health and safety of our members is of utmost importance to us.  We have been watching updates on Covid-19.  Precautions are to be implemented to be able to use our venue. We will post any scheduling updates for training and chapter meetings as decisions are made.

As stated in a previous correspondence, “Based on information that is currently available, the UIL and TAPPS are planning to proceed with the Fall sports. The start date is a moving target. Modifications for the health and safety of players, coaches, other team staff, fans, AND OFFICIALS, are being addressed based on each sport.”  Those modifications, e.g. facial coverings, “social distancing,” fans/no fans are being communicated as we learn them.

Our scheduler, Mary Beth Phelps, has started scheduling for the upcoming season.

   * If you have not submitted your completed preference sheet to her, you may do so via mail or email.

   * If you need a preference sheet, contact Mary Beth (havocvb@gmail.com); do NOT contact Retta                          regarding preference sheets

Although not required at this point, officials may consider purchasing an electronic whistle.  Two vendors carrying electronic whistles are Officials Gear Outlet (https://officialsgearoutlet.com/) and Roof Sportswear (https://www.roofsportswear.com/).
