Return To Play

Return To Play

The Southeastern community has been trying to keep students active although sports are not currently in session due to Covid-19.

During the 2020-2021 school year, things changed for students everywhere.  This was not just the change to online learning but sports were cancelled as well.  Many students are eager to have sports start up again.  The Southeastern community has plans for students to come back to playing sports in a safe environment as long as COVID cases are decreasing over the coming months.  If sports are to be held, fall sports will be in March and April, while spring sports will be in May and June.  The sports potentially offered in March and April will be:  cheerleading, cross country, field hockey, golf, girls and boys soccer, volleyball, and possibly ice hockey.  The sports that will be held in May and June include:  baseball, softball, lacrosse, and track and field.

In an interview with Athletic Director Tripp, he explained his desire for sports to be up and running as soon as possible.  He is excited for students to be able to compete against other schools in the interscholastic competitions.  When asked about a specific date, he could not give one yet but stated, “Athletic registrations will be announced and opened when we know for sure that we will compete against other schools.”

Wellness Program
In addition to bringing sports back, Mr. Tripp hopes to begin a Wellness Program.  The Wellness Program will offer students the opportunity to workout after school on campus and would be held according to the day the students’ cohort is on campus.  Students interested in the program will sign up for this program and choose the sport they want to play.   They will have an assigned Wellness coach to workout with to help them maintain strength and health.  This program will prepare students for interscholastic competitions which will allow for an easy transition when sports are up and running again.  This program hopes to help students at Southeastern stay active during these complicated times.

If the Wellness Program is unable to be held in person, the meetings may be held online after school.  Wellness coaches and students will do their best to give the full experience even if the meeting has to be held online due to COVID cases not decreasing; however, our coaches have been doing a great job at keeping in touch with students as if sports are still in session.
