BHS ATHLETICS UPDATE

I hope that this update finds all of our families in good health and able to enjoy some semblance of a summer together. As some may have already read, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), which is our governing body for high school athletics, released a new 2020-2021 sports calendar. This is in response to the COVID-19 health issue, and state and county health department directives that are forcing most school districts in our Southern Section to open the school year with distance learning. You can read the press release and see the updated sports seasons/calendars here at the CIF website.

 

In summary, our traditional three (3) seasons of sports have been compressed into two (2) seasons, which are labeled as “Fall” (roughly mid-December through mid-February) and “Spring” (roughly mid-March through mid-May). All traditional winter sports have been moved, with girls water polo being placed as a “Fall” sport, while basketball, soccer and wrestling will be played in the “Spring”. So where do we go from here?

 

When will sports return?

Until Riverside County COVID case and positive test rates decrease to meet the CA Department of Health’s requirements, we cannot have students back on campus for academic or co-curricular activities. The CDPH data site can be found here at County Data Monitoring. There is no projection at this time from Riverside County Public Health.

 

What safety measures will be in place upon return?

Our athletic training staff has completed Return to Participation guidelines in cooperation with our BUSD administration. As the possibility of return becomes more promising, this set of protocols will be reviewed and released to all BHS families. As you may be experiencing at your own workplace, as well as at public retailers, we will have requirements for appropriate PPE and physical distancing upon initial return. We will incrementally progress through the conditioning and acclimatization phase, evaluate our procedures, and then move into increased team activities as is permitted, advisable and prudent. Our protocols have been drawn from state and county public health and CIF Sports Medicine guidelines.

 

What will competition look like for each sport?

The Citrus Belt League athletic directors have finished a new draft of schedules for every sport. Non-league contests will now be rearranged to fill team schedules to the best of our ability in the compressed calendars. We plan to continue to offer competition at the varsity, JV and freshmen levels, as conditions allow. Those conditions include decisions made by other school districts, available officials, transportation and the sharing of our home facilities. At this time, there is no information available to determine whether spectators will be allowed in our venues, nor in the venues of the school districts with whom we compete.

 

With seasons combined, what about multi-sport student-athletes?

Our coaching staff will work together to provide as many opportunities for our multi-sport student-athletes to compete in their selected sports. In season sports will still be primary, and our coaching staff will communicate expectations with one another and our student-athletes. As CIF is waving the “Outside Competition” bylaw for the 2020-2021 season, students will be allowed to compete in club/travel during the same time as CIF sports take place. Our hope is that these organizations will continue to work their calendars around the CIF calendar so as to avoid schedule conflicts. Students choosing to commit to a BHS athletic team will be responsible to meet attendance requirements set by our coaching staff.

 

What about completion of physicals for Athletic Clearance?

Please do not be anxious about Athletic Clearance deadlines at this time. We understand that most primary care physicians are not providing physicals at this time. Since we do not have any idea about our return to campus, Athletic Clearance is not critical. Please complete input of all information, and read and acknowledge all forms at this time. Please upload your student’s physical as you can complete it. If you want to try to get that completed now, APEX Urgent Care in Beaumont is doing sports physical. The cost is $35.00.

 

What about tryouts for incoming freshmen and new students?

Our return to participation restrictions include tryouts for each sport. As we receive clearance and move into our conditioning phase, tryout dates for each sport will be announced to give student-athletes advanced notice.

 

What if my student is transferring to BHS from another high school?

Please click here on the BHS Athletics home page, go to athletic department contacts on the left, and email Coach DuSold to set up an appointment to meet and complete CIF transfer forms.

 

What can my student-athlete do now?

As the 2020-2021 school year begins, our student-athletes should get into a back to school routine. They will have a class schedule each day, with regular assignments and homework. They should continue to actively pursue physical fitness on their own each day, so that they have a foundation for return to activities with our teams. Our athletic training and coaching staff is available to consult with your student about training, conditioning and nutrition. If your student-athlete is committed to trying out for a sport this year, now is the time to settle back into a normal daily routine that addresses appropriate sleep, healthy nutrition choices and consistent activity.

GIRLS SOCCER EARNS FIRST CIF CHAMPIONSHIP

The Lady Cougars made history last Friday evening by being the first girls program in BHS history to win a team CIF Championship! Beaumont defeated Charter Oak HS, 1-0, to capture the title. The tightly-contested match saw junior Kayla Oldenburg drive a powerful free kick toward the back post where it found the net for the only goal of the match. Junior goalie Nicole Molina made several big saves, and the back line on defense (Ava Berger, Madyson Cornish, Corin Jones and Lauren Jordan) held on to shutout the Chargers in the exciting game. With the home stands at near capacity, Beaumont capped off the final countdown by charging onto the field to celebrate the CIF title. The win secured a berth in the CIF State regional playoffs, where the Lady Cougars earned the #4 seed. Unfortunately, the post season came to a close in a 4-0 loss to Rancho Buena Vista, the San Diego Section's D4 champion, on Tuesday night. Congratulations to our Lady Cougars for an outstanding season that brought so many exciting moments and lasting memories to your school and community!

Any and all information in regard to resumption of activities will be posted here, as well as messaged out through Parent Square, Athletic Clearance and individual team social media platforms. If you have questions in regard to a specific sport, please email the athletic director, or use the Coaches Directory to email the head coach.

Please understand that admission is charged at most schools for most events, and ticket prices are generally similar to those listed to the left for BHS home events.

ATHLETIC PASSES FOR ALL SPORTS...SAVE MONEY & TIME!


Are you planning to attend all of your student's home games here at BHS? Do you want to avoid the lines at the ticket booth prior to entering the stadium or gymnasium? Then consider purchasing an athletic pass for each adult and child in your family that plans to attend games. Our admission prices are posted in the column on the right side of this page, so you can see that you will save money if you purchase a pass. Here is the information and how to purchase:

Adult Annual Pass (entry to all football, volleyball, basketball and wrestling for ENTIRE year) - $40.00 per person
Adult Seasonal Pass (entry to all FALL or WINTER or SPRING games) - $25.00 per person
Senior Adult Seasonal Pass - $20.00 per person
Child (age 5-12) Annual Pass - $20.00 per child

You may purchase through the BHS business office at any time during the day, and can have a photo taken at either 1st lunch (11:00-11:40) or 2nd lunch (12:00-12:40) throughout the week to produce your pass. You may also send cash or check with your student to make the purchase at the business office, and e-mail a JPEG photo for each person ordering a pass to our ASB director, Jennifer Florence. Her e-mail is jenniferflorence@beaumontusd.k12.ca.us. Send your e-mail with the subject as your FAMILY NAME - ATHLETIC PASS, and include your request in the body, and attach your JPEG. Your passes will be printed and sent home with your student. Once you have your pass, just bypass the ticket line at the stadium and go directly to the home gate for entry. At the gym, just show your pass to the ticket taker and enjoy the game. BHS athletic passes are ONLY VALID FOR USE AT HOME GAMES, and will not be honored at any other school.

ARTICLES FOR PARENTS OF STUDENT-ATHLETES

There is a wide array of informative articles to help student-athletes, parents, coaches and administrators to make the most of the high school athletic experience. In the educational setting, we receive articles from many journals and publications that are available at no cost. Important information is often received directly by school personnel, and then given to the student-athletes in a variety of ways. We are going to start posting links to online articles and websites that would be helpful to our parent community on subjects that deal directly with student-athletes and high school athletics in general. Our goal is to provide information, and, when possible, host informational programs for our parent community that will provide meaningful subject matter in growing and preparing our student-athletes for a variety of post high school opportunities. This resource page will be a work in progress, and we will add as we go along. Thank you for all that you do for your students, and your support of the academic and athletic efforts we strive for at BHS. (Updated July 2019)
