Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
I write to make you aware that fall varsity sports teams will start outdoor practices and workouts with coaches and other athletics staff on September 5. Spring teams will begin practices on September 12 and winter teams on October 15. Spring and winter teams may begin workouts prior to the start of their practices. Only those students who have received notification of a second negative COVID-19 test will be allowed to participate.
All athletic activities will comply with Middlebury College campus quarantine Phase 1 protocols with an emphasis on face coverings, physical distancing, hand hygiene, and limits on group sizes. Staff from the College’s Department of Athletics and Center for Health and Wellness are working closely together to ensure that the practices and workouts meet or exceed all Vermont guidelines for athletics as outlined in the state’s College Restart Plan. No athletic competitions will take place this fall.
Director of Athletics
