Dear Paly Vikings & Families,
The Season 1 Athletics Meeting has been postponed until next semester.
The CIF and CCS have both officially moved the start date of Season 1. However, there has been no guidance as to what the new Season 1 calendar might look like and when we will be allowed to return to training. Once we have that information we will host an informational night updating all of our Viking Athletes and supporters.
The Palo Alto Athletic Department will continue to work within the framework of local health guidelines, in partnership with district leadership, to provide the best and safest education-based athletic experience for our community. We recognize the challenge and disappointment that comes from losing opportunities to prepare and play. Still, we encourage hope over despair, preparation instead of apathy, and community above isolation.
With respect to the latter, which seems unavoidable in this environment, know and trust that your coaches are thinking of you, are there to support you, and want to hear from you. We are in this together. One Ship!
- Coach Gifford
The Season 1 Athletics Meeting schedule for this evening, 11/18 at 7:30pm has been postponed.
It was our hope to be able to provide new information in regards to youth sports as state and county health officials had planned to release updated guidance as early as Wednesday, 11/4/20. Unfortunately, the release of that guidance has been delayed as a result of Santa Clara County moving from Orange to Purple on the California Tier Designations. We have rescheduled the meeting for Wednesday, 12/9 at 7:30pm. the week before practices are scheduled to begin on Monday, 12/14.
Outdoor workouts will be suspended starting Wednesday, 11/18 until new guidelines are released. We will keep all of you up-to-date as new information is provided. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me, Coach Gifford at [email protected]. Stay safe and healthy.
