COVID Athletics Guidelines

2020-2021 Hilldale Public Schools Basketball/Wrestling Guidelines

Hilldale Public Schools is excited for basketball and wrestling seasons. We want to welcome you to our school sites and hope that you have a great experience while you visit any of our athletic facilities.

Our ability to participate in athletic competition this winter is dependent on the cooperation of our student athletes, coaches, parents, and patrons. This document and the following protocols are in place to help all of us mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19 and may be reviewed and adjusted as needed, if and when new information becomes available from the CDC, State Health Department, SDE, and OSSAA. There is still a risk of transmitting and being exposed to the virus, but we feel confident that by working together our basketball and wrestling seasons can go on as scheduled.

*******All Varsity games will be live-streamed on our Hilldale Buzz YouTube Channel********

The following guidelines will be followed in all Hilldale athletic facilities during the 2020-2021 basketball and wrestling seasons:
