Sports schedule 2020-2021 / COVID-19 PROTOCOL and updates
UPDATE AUGUST 28, 2020
Welcome back Friars! Thank you to all of our student-athletes who joined us for summer training and adhered to the safety protocols and screenings that were implemented. Your understanding and proper execution of the guidelines is vital to our continued success. Moving forward with remote learning, your coach will communicate your team's schedule and expectations in regards to 7th period. Due to the continued need for social distancing and facility availability both morning and afternoon sessions will be utilized for training. Your training/practice session will take the place of 7th period and therefore is mandatory. Training schedules will vary by sport and could be updated weekly as guidelines change. As always, if you have any conflicts or concerns please contact your head coach directly.
Reminders for training:
- All student-athletes must participate in COVID-19 screening when arriving on campus
- All student-athletes must wear a mask when arriving and leaving campus and whenever the coach in charge requires
- All student-athletes must bring their own water, ONE GALLON recommended
- Physicals are required in order to participate in training. Fall sports- 8/31, spring sports- 9/10.
- The Athletic Training Room and Locker Room are still closed. Athletic Trainers are available to assist students, restrooms will be open outside the Aquatics Center.

UPDATE JULY 21, 2020- A Message from Athletic Director Alan Clinton
In response to the ongoing situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the CIF State and Southern Section offices announced on Monday, July 20, 2020 an update to the sports calendar for the 2020-2021 school year.
As you know, traditionally our 13 CIF sports are played in three seasons- fall, winter and spring. However, with the recent changes, all sports will now be classified into two seasons- fall and spring. Volleyball will join Cross Country, Football and Water Polo as fall sports and will begin in December and January while our remaining nine sports including Basketball, Soccer, Wrestling, Baseball, Golf, Lacrosse, Swimming, Tennis and Track and Field will play in the spring beginning in February and March.
With this announcement, we now have the framework in place to move forward in planning the athletic calendar. It is our utmost priority to work with the Servite administration and coaches to provide the safest environment for our student-athletes. This year will bring a new set of challenges but I am confident that with the support of all our coaches, families, staff and community we will be able to continue to offer the same level of excellence across our athletic programs that you have been accustomed to over the years.
It is our goal that the athletic program continues to play a vital part in each student-athletes Servite experience and assists in the formation of our young men becoming the best version of themselves. We are committed to preparing our student-athletes for the challenges that lie ahead and the rigors of Trinity League and CIF competition. I believe that we can truly accomplish any goals we set out for ourselves if we work hard, remain focused and have hope.
The history, tradition and culture of Servite has us poised to come out of this difficult situation on top and stronger than ever! We look forward to the championships that will be won, the records broken and the memories that will be made in the upcoming year.
All of this will be accomplished because WE ARE SERVITE!
