Select Lorain High sports programs will begin training next week with specific “Return-to-Play” protocol. The initial phase in this opening will involve small group training that involves primarily upperclassmen. During this initial phase, groups will be limited to a maximum of 10 people for all training sessions that take place indoors, and a maximum of 50 for anything taking place outdoors.
Football will begin training this Monday, June 15 behind the stadium with athletes in grades 10-12 from 6:00-8:00pm Monday-Thursday.
The sports of basketball, wrestling, soccer and volleyball will also be starting next week. The coaches of these sports will be contacting returning letter winners directly to provide specific details including days, times and locations. All athletes may not be on the same schedule due to the limitations relative to the number of participants per training session. If your son or daughter did not participate last year then please contact the athletic department at 440-830-4009 and leave your name and phone #. A coach will then reach out to you with details.
Most of the incoming freshmen will begin training in early July with middle school athletes beginning in mid-July. Please contact the athletic department at 440-830-4009 between now and July 1 to provide contact information so that these coaches can contact you with specific details. Coaches will be reaching out to these athletes that week prior to their workout sessions beginning.
All athletes must bring their own water bottle, and water bottles should not be shared. An athlete that does not show up to a workout with water will NOT be permitted to participate.
It is very important to note that all athletes must have all electronic paperwork updated in Final Forms PRIOR to their first workout session.

The goal of Lorain City Schools is to provide all student-athletes and coaches with a safe environment that will allow them to grow athletically, academically, socially and intellectually. We will continue to work closely with the OHSAA, NFHS and local health professionals to ensure that we are instituting best practices to allow athletes to have a positive and safe experience.
