Restrictions around outdoor sports have changed. We are now allowed to have up to 150 spectators, distanced and masked, at our football games. We must adhere to mask and distancing rules in order to be able to hold these games. Please help us with this if you are a spectator. Thank you!
Volleyball is restricted to 25 parent spectators per game. We WILL still be live-streaming if you're unable to be a live spectator. Please click the volleyball schedule to see the live YouTube link and watch the game.
