The Superintendents of Calaveras County Would Like to Address Youth Sports Under COVID-19.

Angels Camp, CA....We understand the value and importance of youth sports to our students, families, and the community. Many of you have been asking for youth sports to return. Currently, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has not issued guidance on this topic and has advised local public health departments that they did not have the authority to grant permission for those activities. If local permission had been granted, then it would have to be rescinded.

Many are also aware that the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) indicated they plan on releasing their guidance around July 20, 2020. We are hopeful that CIF is working closely with CDPH for the benefit of our students. CIF guidelines will not supersede those from CDPH. If CDPH has not issued guidance by the time CIF issues theirs, we will remain in a holding pattern.

In alignment with the CDPH and our insurance carriers, we are not able to provide youth sports practices, conditioning, use of facilities, or other activities at this time. Our schools and districts stand ready to resume youth sports under the CDPH guidelines if at all possible.

Pro Sports Halted

There is a reason pro sports have been halted. In close contact such as sports Covid transfer is assured.

Do the parents care about their kids and families?

Covid is real and spreading due to people not practicing what is needed.

Do you parents have families? Do you care about your parents? They are more susceptible to serious effects or death from Covid.

Covid is real Covid kills some, do you feel lucky punk? Do You?

Lets care about everyone and allow the health folks give guidance.

For now sports involving close contact is out.

Get it? OUT for NOW.
