Ringgold Athletics

Covid-19 and Return to practice

Our coaching staff has worked diligently to create action plans for our student-athletes to return to practice. Please be aware that there are specific ways your child should enter/exit practice, and it is of the utmost importance that everyone follows these new procedures. Every student-athlete will be required to complete the Covid-19 Monitoring Form before every workout/practice. If your child answers "yes" to any of the questions on the form, he/she will be sent home. Please do not send your child to campus if he or she has been exhibiting any symptoms or been around someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19. Coaches will also be scanning temperatures every day.
