Union City Athletics Return to Play Information

Starting July 6th, Union City High School will begin Phase ONE of the return to play for High School athletes only. Please click on the link below for detailed information.

While the Athletic Department and rest of the Randolph Eastern School Personnel are continuing to evolve our return to play guidelines in accordance to DOE, IHSAA and Randolph County Health, we wanted to give you a brief update as where things stand right now. Tonight during the Randolph Eastern School Corporation School Board meeting they approved our Phase One Re-entry plan. Below are a few updates concerning Union City Athletics and return to play. High School coaches will be communicating practice times with athletes.

  1. Any student-athlete (no matter what grade level) who received an IHSAA physical during the 2019-2020 school year will NOT require a new physical for 2020-2021. Those who did not have a IHSAA physical during the 19-20 school year, still MUST get a physical for this season.
  2. ALL student-athletes, regardless of whether needing a physical or not, MUST complete the IHSAA Health Questionnaire and Consent Release Form.
  3. Return to play for Union City High School Athletics will begin on Monday, July 6th, per DOE, IHSAA and Randolph County Health Department guidance.
  4. The DOE and State Government have limited each student-athlete’s time on campus to 15 hours per week during phase ONE, which lasts for two weeks. We are designing our programs so that every student-athlete will be able to attend their fall and winter workouts, if they desire to do so.
  5. Schedules for the first two weeks (July 6-19) are being updated on EventLink to reflect the correct times, locations, and dates for workouts. You can also find that calendar below. Your coaches will be in contact on when you are allowed to come due to we have to limit the number of athletes at one time.
  6. More guidelines for Phase 2 and Phase 3 will be published once our return to play information is finalized.

We look forward to July 6th, welcoming back our student-athletes to campus!

Sports Enhancement and the Athletic Training Clinic

They have reduced the prices, offer single sessions, and offer bulk sessions at a reduced rate. Reid’s ATCs are excited to get back to a little bit of normalcy. Union City Athletic Department and coaches would like to encourage our athletes to check this out. Would be a great benefit to all our athletes especially right now while we can not get into the weight room.
