Saints Baseball's Response for COVID -19
In light of the ongoing developments as a result of COVID -19, the recommendation of Governor Kim Reynolds to cancel school for up to four weeks, and decisions made by the Archdiocese of Dubuque, St. Rita’s will be closed immediately and Saints Baseball will not hold any indoor or outdoor practices until school resumes.
The Iowa High School Athletic Association, the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, the Iowa High School Music Association and the Iowa High School Speech Association are all in agreement that “no in-person contact between coaches/administrators and student-athletes for four weeks.”
We realize many teams have tournaments and league games scheduled soon, however, our primary concern should not be baseball but rather the safety of our children, coaches, parents, family members and community at large.
With such a fluid situation the board will meet in the coming days to discuss options should school resume after four weeks. In addition, we will reach out to Positive Sports Training and USSSA to gather more information regarding league games and tournaments.
We will follow up with the organization once spring break is over and the board has had a chance to meet, but as of now, St. Rita’s will be closed and there will be no practices until school resumes.
