August 26th Update: Thank you to those coordinators that attended our meeting last evening. We are working on updates to the rules document based on conversations from last night. As a reminder, at this time, COVID-related protocols will be dictated by individual gyms this season. We are working on a way for coordinators to enter this information on our web site and pushing this out to all away team coaches on Friday afternoon for all games that weekend they are playing on the road.

    We will continue to rely on guidance from the State of Ohio, the OHSAA, and local school districts on precautions that must be taken in order to run our league in the safest manner possible.  Our COVID-19 operating guidelines have been approved by the departments of health in all counties that we operate in and we stand ready to help our member communities.  We understand that with such a large and diverse league that there are a variety of opinions and thoughts on COVID-19 and steps that must be taken to minimize exposure to it.  However, we must come together for the common good and abide by guidelines that have been well thought out by the State of Ohio, the OHSAA, and the local school districts where your children attend school.  The viability and success of the league will depend on it for this season.
