Athletics Update 2/1/2021

  • On February 1st  Holland Patent CSD will begin with strength and conditioning and skill development sessions for Varsity and JV Girls and Boys Basketball and Wrestling.  Varsity and JV Girls Basketball will hold sessions in the MS gym from 3:00PM to 5:00PM.  Boys Varsity and JV Basketball will hold sessions in the HS gym from 3:00PM to 5:00PM.  Wrestling for Varsity and JV athletes will be held in the wrestling room from 3:00PM to 5:00PM.

    The strength and conditioning and skill development sessions will be small groupings established by the coaches.  These small groupings will have no interaction with the other groupings and social distancing, face coverings and sanitizing being used with all groupings.  Individuals should reach out to their coaches to see what groupings that they will be placed in and the corresponding time of their session.

    The Athletics Department is working with Section III and the Center State conference to determine modified offerings. When we know the status of that level there will be a community announcement with more information.  

    Volleyball has been moved to the Fall season 2 with a start date of March 1st.  The Center State Conference has been proactive to avoid gym space conflicts and to not impact our cleaning and sanitizing protocols as they pertain to the academic day. 

    Thank you for your support of Holland Patent Athletics.
