Good Afternoon Phoenix Family!
I would like to start by thanking our Phoenix family for your continued support and patience with our athletic program and our student-athletes and coaches. We will continue to plan and train for a successful and full season of Phoenix athletics.
Here are a couple of reminders that will be helpful as we move forward:
Please continue to pre-screen your athletes before they attend practices. It is extremely important that if an athlete displays any symptoms of Covid that they do not attend practices until they have not displayed symptoms for 48-72 hours. If an immediate family member is displaying symptoms or has been recently diagnosed with Covid 19 that precautions should be taken as well regarding practice attendance.
Athletes should arrive at practice ready to participate with a water bottle, masks or gaiter(neck wrap) or any other supplies such as an inhaler or required equipment. Locker rooms will not be available. For football players, I highly recommend gaiters or neck wraps that they can pull up over their mouth and nose during huddles and while waiting in line. I will have a limited number available to pass out tomorrow at practice.
Starting August 11th all practices will be held between the times of 4 and 6 pm. I wanted to give you advance notice so transportation could be arranged. All three middle schools will be on the same time schedule for practice.
In order to participate all athletes must have either a valid 2019-20 physical on file or obtain a new physical and submit it to the athletic director via in person or email. You may also upload it on the Activity Registration. All athletes must also either update Step 7 of the Activity Registration or for new athletes must complete a new registration.

Please check out our website at www.newaugustamsathletics.com for the most current information on schedules and important announcements. Due to the changes in schedules of other districts we have been forced to cancel several contests. The most up to date schedules can be found here.
