Summer Sports – Soft Reopening in Limited Sports & Exciting New Zoom Activities
At the S4EA Board meeting of July 8th, the S4EA Board decided to have all sports (other than tennis & cycling) to be cancelled until further notice. A soft re-opening of the summer sports practices of cycling and tennis after July 12th is allowed as long as those sports meet the guidelines of the San Diego County Department of Health for reopening. The numbers of people may be limited to insure that we can maintain social distancing of 6’. Athletes & coaches must wear a mask to practice and will have their temperature checked. Contact S4EA at 858-565-7432 regarding updates on scheduled activities.
S4EA has exciting new activities of Zoom Exercise & Sports Workouts at 6pm during the week. On select Saturdays, S4EA has Zoom activities including a Scavenger Hunt on Oct 3 and Halloween Costume Dance on Oct 17. S4EA also has socially distancing parking lot activities including Bingo Bash on Oct 10 and Halloween Trunk-or-Treat on Oct 31. Please join us at these activities.
Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes has cancelled the Halloween SPORTS Camp #3 which had been scheduled for the weekend of October 23-25 at Green Oak Ranch. S4EA felt that our S4EA athletes and chaperones were not ready to attend an overnight camp at this time. S4EA hopes that the situation will have changed enough that we will be able to offer our SPORTS Camps once again in 2021.
