Total number of spectators should be limited to what is allowable based on local public health orders for max capacity of gatherings sizes. If no max capacity size is indicated in a public health order, then organizations (including schools) should allow only the number of spectators where physical distancing of at least six feet can be maintained between non-household members.
      • If a team is traveling from another county, cancel or postpone event if team is traveling from an area designated Category 3 by their local public health department.
    • CDH also further defined youth sports activities based on their “Levels of Community Spread for Idaho Back-to-School Framework”
      • These are the categories you have been hearing them update each Monday that the school districts are using to determine whether to have in-person or online classes
      • Guidance released today (Sep 3) notes that if a school is in Category 3 (not stage, but Levels of Community Spread categories) then only intra-squad activities should occur
      • When we move to Category 2 then games between two teams can occur (Eagle v. Rocky Mtn), but no multi-team or large tournaments

    We'll let you know tomorrow as soon as we have the fields finalized.

    Important Reminders: League Registration and Hudl Use

    By EHS Men’s Lacrosse Coaching Staff 02/18/2021, 9:00am MST

    A quick update on tryouts, and some IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

    The level of competition and willingness to compete has been outstanding over the first 2 days of tryouts.  It puts us, as coaches, in a difficult position with varsity team selections.  It's certainly a credit to our programs depth, and bodes well for the success of both varsity and JV squads this spring. 

    League Registration:  We still have one important last step for many of your players to be eligible for league play, the IHSLL League Registration. This registration is FREE and quick since it is very similar to our EHS Men’s Lacrosse registration. If not completed by Sunday, your player will no longer be allowed on the field with us.  Here's the link:

    Hudl:  A quick reminder.  Hudl is for our coaching staff to communicate directly with the players.  Parent/guardian updates will be on the website and sent out via Sports Engine.  Don't worry, you'll be in the know.  Please let us help our athletes develop the communication skills and accountability that not only makes them successful on the field, but also in life.

    We've got an intense 2 days remaining.  Player assignment to rosters will occur no later than Monday.   Let's go earn another state championship ring!

    Go 'Stangs!
