Kudos to the AHSAA, AISA for starting summer workouts

All seven high schools in Dallas County can begin their summer workouts next week in various sports.

Starting Monday, Dallas County High, Ellwood Christian Academy, Keith High, Meadowview Christian School, Morgan Academy, Selma High and Southside High can all workout in football, baseball, softball, basketball and volleyball.

The AHSAA, its Central Board of Control, and the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) made the decision last week after Gov. Kay Ivey updated the state’s Safer at Home order.

The AISA announced their summer workout regimen this week.

Dallas County, Keith, ECA, Selma and Southside are public schools and members of the AHSAA.

MCS and Morgan Academy are members of the AISA.

While the COVID-19 pandemic is still out there, we applaud both the AHSAA and AISA for taking a safe, conservative approach to bringing student-athletes back on their respective campuses.

The AHSAA has cancelled summer competitions, such as 7-on-7 and basketball leagues, but could revisit that next month.

AISA executive director Michael McLendon said the AISA hasn’t ruled out having summer competitions/play dates and will revisit the possibility on June 14.

Reopening school and when fall sports will start next year should be the last things on everyone’s minds right now.

The top priority should be getting the student-athletes back to restarting their athletic careers in a safe and healthy environment.  We encourage parents need to support the coaches and administrators at their respective schools.

 

The future can wait. Let’s focus on the present.
