Strength & Conditioning Summer Policies

We are working hard to create a safe environment for all of our students, coaches and community. Our summer strength and conditioning training sessions along with our sport specific skill training sessions are all voluntary.


If your student is participating in summer workouts, they will need to bring a water jug/bottle to their workouts since the drinking fountains will not be available. Students will need to leave immediately after completing their workout. Locker rooms will not be open and students should leave their cell phones in their cars whenever possible.


Each student must have a signed parent waiver before they will be able to workout at Millard South H.S. starting on June 1st, 2020.
