Valley High School Winter Sports COVID-19 Protocols: Practices/Games/Meets

Practices to Resume Over Winter Break

Because WDMCS' waiver through the Iowa Department of Education (IDOE) expires Monday, Dec. 21, activities and athletics practices can resume in person starting Tuesday, Dec. 22.


These protocols, developed by the Valley Athletics & Activities Office, the Valley girls' bowling coaching staff, and Warrior Lanes, will help limit any possible exposure and spread of COVID-19 while practices are held.


As a reminder: Please do not attend any event if you are feeling ill or have a temperature above 100.4 degrees.

Parking, Entering, & Exiting Warrior Lanes for Practices

Warrior Lanes is the new home of Valley Bowling. The bowling alley is located at 190 SE Laurel St., Waukee, IA 50263. A face mask is required upon entry.
