New Augusta North Athletics Update Week of 9/8
Phoenix Athletics Family:
This week’s update marks the first time that student athletes will be in school face to face since we have started back. There will be several new protocols for student athletes who are face to face to continue to ensure student and staff safety.
Student athletes will not be assigned athletic lockers this year. They will dress in an assigned locker room and take their clothes and supplies with them to their practice area.
Each team will be assigned a specific locker room area and time to dress for practice and a specific route to enter the locker room.
For those student athletes who are virtual please do not arrive until 15 minutes prior to the start of the scheduled practice and those athletes should be ready for practice. Student athletes who are virtual will not be allowed in the building other than football and volleyball players who will continue their same protocols.
The late athletic busses will begin running on Tuesday, September 8th. They will depart NAPAN at 6:15 and drop athletes off at their neighborhood stops. If you wish for your athlete to use the late bus please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the athlete’s name and student identification number.
As a reminder continue to check our website at www.newaugustamsathletics.com for the latest updates on schedules. There are updates for 7th FB and 7th VB as new games were added for FB and the county tourney is back on for 7th VB. Also there will be county and conference meets and matches for Cross Country and Boys Tennis as previously scheduled.
Customized gaiters or neck wraps will continue to be on sale for 5$ after school and during games.
Ticket Policy and Attendance - as a reminder for home Football and Volleyball games each athlete that is participating in that contest is allowed 2 Spectators. Each athlete was given two admission passes for the season that must be shown in order to purchase your two tickets. Please communicate this information with all family members in order to avoid confusion or unnecessary trips.
This week our Volleyball team will be hosting a portion of the county tournament. We ask that 8th grade parents wait until appx 6:30 to arrive for the games and 7th grade parents exit after the 7th grade game.

Winter Sports- At this time the plan is to move forward with winter sports. If you have a student athlete interested in participating in B/G basketball, wrestling or swimming and diving please log on to our Activity Registration site at https://napan-ar.rschooltoday.com/ and complete or update your information and register that sport for the 2020-21 season. A reminder that if a physical is on file from last year that athlete does not need a new physical for this season.
Once again thanks for your continued support of our student athletes and Phoenix athletics. Let’s have a great week and stay safe.
