UIL COVID-19 Update: Requirements for Strength and Conditioning Workouts

| |

There are some new UIL updates for requirements on Strength and Conditioning allowing workouts that will allow them to resume on July 13.

Less than 12 hours after the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) released a statement that would delay the start of football season, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) in Texas released updated strength and conditioning guidelines allowing schools to resume their sport-specific instruction on July 13 after a nearly two-week pause.

With the updated guidelines, access to the locker room will now be allowed as well as drills involving one or more athletes. Face coverings such as masks are mandatory except for those actively exercising. Other guidelines include a mandatory masks requirement for parents and guests who visit workouts. It is additionally required that students, staff, and visitors wear face covering when entering and upon exiting facilities and practice areas.

Other requirements continue to include:
Optional attendance for students with schools considering virtual workouts for students.
All surface in workout areas are to be thoroughly disinfected throughout and at the end of each day.
No clothing or towels may be laundered on site.
No shared water or food.

Two-a-days for football are just 26 days away while the kickoff for the 2020 season— should it happen — is just over 50 days away.
