The ACADEMY Athletic Report – 10.16.20

Message from Coach MAC

Fall Break is a much-needed time for many of our faculty, staff, and students. This has been a year of planning, adjustments, and more planning as our school community has done an outstanding job of showing their Griffin Strong spirit. We’ve extended Fall Sport seasons. We’ve launched a new Spirit Store. We’ve added busses. And we’ve grown in our student body at all 3 campuses. Fall Break is usually the end of the Fall Sports and the beginning of Winter Sports. This year it is a break for both as XC and VB make their last push for State and Basketball begins at all 3 of our district levels. It is an exciting time as we grow and also a trying time as the puzzle complexity increases because of COVID adjustments and an exciting growth that has happen for our teams. I personally am thankful for the grace that our parents and our students show me and my staff as we try to navigate this times and provide the best experience for all of our male and female student-athletes. Go Griffins Go!

Weekly Sports Recap

No games or competitions this week.

D&R Basketball Players must have Physicals to begin season

IF you have not made an appointment with your doctor to do a new physical, you must do that ASAP. Students must turn in their physical, health history, 2 waivers, and the player and parent expectations. Please turn in to the athletic office or your coach ASAP.

D&R and Grammar Practices Beginning

All teams will be in full practice mode shortly after Fall Break. The D&R teams will be in a preparation sprint the next 3 weeks in anticipation of our November 10th opener at all 3 campuses. Grammar teams will start to organize for our new 3X3 Basketball league for 3rd-6th graders. Be on the lookout for practice information from your respective volunteer coach. We could not survive without the generous donation of time and energy from our volunteer parent coaches. This is going to be a great season!
