James River High School Athletic Community,
FYI, a communication sent today (3/13) from our DSA, Bryan Hannum, to our JRHS coaches:
With CCPS schools now being closed from Saturday, March 14 through March 29, we will be treating these dates as a dead period. NO practices, no conditioning, no lifting as a team.
If by chance the closure extends through spring break, the dead period policy will be extended during that period and we will next look to use the week of April 13 for practices and resume games the week of April 20.
If you want to send kids a workout and things they should be doing over the break to stay in shape that is fine but no coaches are allowed to organize or be at anything with your athletes. Please make sure you let all of your assistant coaches know as well as your volunteer coaches. As of now, we will not attempt to make up any missed games as we would have nowhere to put them on the schedule and we don’t want to return having to play 3 or 4 games a week.
Please help to dispel the rumor going around in the community that spring sports have been canceled. They have not! We will get spring sports up and running just as soon as we can do it safely for our student/athletes. Feel free to communicate all of this and any other information about workouts, what to do over the break, etc with your teams.
