Spring 2021 Athletic Information

Dear Parents and Students,

 

The EDS Spring athletic season is just around the corner. Below is important information about the season.  

This letter is jam-packed with important updates and reminders, so please take a moment to continue reading.  Due to the COVID pandemic, we will be following the CDC and National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) guidelines for the health and safety of our students, coaches, and visitors.  As these guidelines are updated, so will our procedures, and our team will communicate such changes as necessary.  

 

Below are a few of the procedures that will continue from the fall season:

 

  • Masks will be mandatory - at all practices and games for both fans and athletes at all home and away venues.

  • Athletes must have their own water bottles for practices and games.

  • Social distancing will be required for all fans at both practices and games at all home and away venues.

    • Athletes and coaches will also utilize social distancing at both practices and games and the coaches will discuss this with their teams.

  • Transportation changes - due to the limited number of seats available on the EDS buses due to social distancing guidelines, we are asking for any parent who can transport his/her own child to and from games.  If you are able to do this, please contact me and your coach via email. 

 

1) Athletic Department Orientation and Team meetings:

The EDS Athletic Department will host via Zoom the Spring Parent-Coach-Player preseason meetings before the start of the athletic season for baseball, soccer, and track & field.

 

The Zoom meetings will be no longer than 30 minutes each which will allow for families and players to attend more than one team meeting.  

 

The schedule for Zoom meetings can be found immediately below and a link Is provided with each team description and schedule in the pages that follow.

On Monday, Feb 8:

  • 5:30pm - Baseball

  • 6:00pm - Boys Soccer

  • 6:30pm - Girls Soccer

  • 7:00pm - Track & field
     

2) Health Forms: Athletes must have all health forms completed and turned into the Front Office by the start of the season. The required forms can be accessed through the parent portal.  

 

3) Game Schedules: The game schedules and driving directions to away games can be found on the EDS Athletics website at www.edspanthers.com.  Team schedules are subject to changes throughout the season but particularly at the start.  Please check the schedules periodically.

 

4) Contact Information: If you need to reach me, please email me at jcohen@edsaugusta.com, or call my direct line at 706-261-0111. If you would like to discuss any ideas about the athletic program, please contact me to schedule a meeting.

The first day of practice/tryouts for all teams is Tuesday, February 9.  Tryout dates are Feb 9, 10, and 11th (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). I will email all participants and families the results of tryouts on Friday, February 12 after 3:30pm. All students in the middle school are eligible to participate on an EDS spring team.
 

Transportation

  • The EDS bus will transport all teams to the practice site.  

  • On game days teams will be driven to the site by EDS buses if possible but only for the 4pm start times.  

  • Pick up will be at the practice/game with the exception for Track & Field team practices.
