Dear Newington Athletics community,
We are steadily progressing towards the start of the fall 2020 athletics season. We are extremely proud of our student athletes for continuing to adhere to our COVID-19 protocols and ensuring the safety and wellness of their fellow student athletes and coaches while continuing to train at a high level.
As this process to return continues, we remain focused on our ultimate goal of student safety and wellness. We want our student athletes to be able to engage in our programs and partake in a worthwhile athletic experience.
With this focus in mind, we continue to work with our conference, local health officials, and our school community to identify the best practices that will ensure our student athletes the best chance to continue their experience and minimize any potential risks that could jeopardize their season throughout the fall.
With that being said, we will be following recommendations by the CIAC and the Newington Athletic Department will NOT be permitting fans at our events throughout the fall.
We understand that our parents/guardians, family members, students, and other fans of our athletic programs will not be able to come out and support their favorite team, but we are focused on removing any variables that may cause risk to the opportunity for our student athletes to benefit from. We know that the social, emotional, and physical benefits of sports is even more imperative in a high school studentís life as we navigate through these challenging times. That is why we are committed to supporting and developing our student athletes as they successfully reengage with school and sports.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and respecting this difficult decision. We look forward to continuing to offer a great athletic experience for all our student athletes in a safe and responsible way.
