CDH Youth Sports Position Statement

    • Group/team practices and scrimmages may occur, but no more than two teams or groups should be present. Total number of spectators should be limited to what is allowable based on local public health orders for max capacity of gatherings sizes.
  • Stage 4
    • Scrimmages, games and no more than two leagues, schools, or groups should be present at the venue or field at the same time. 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

Urgent!  Ride Sharing for OTF training and lacrosse related events.

By EHS Men’s Lacrosse 11/05/2020, 2:15pm MST

Hey guys, wanted to pass on some information about ride sharing through the off season.  We are asking you to NOT SHARE RIDES to/from OFFTHEFIELD or any lacrosse related events this off season.  Riding in a car is simply one of the easiest ways to transfer COVID and/or the Flu.  We understand that there may be some instances that sharing a ride is necessary.  If this is the case, we expect ALL IN THE CAR TO WEAR A MASK.  Even if you don't have any signs/symptoms of COVID and/or the Flu.  

Hope you're all training hard for the spring season!

OFFTHEFIELD Training Begins Tomorrow!

By EHS Men’s Lacrosse Coaching Staff 11/02/2020, 7:15am MST

Good Morning ‘Stangs!

Just a reminder the OFFTHEFIELD training begins tomorrow.  Again, our coaching staff would like to emphasize how important we feel this training is.  It’s simply more than just going to the gym and lifting weights, OTF has designed a sport specific training program, that will help us prevent injury and become more athletic…  specifically, with lacrosse in mind.  It is also specifically designed to help our athletes develop over their entire EHS Men’s Lacrosse career, and builds from year to year (freshman to senior).

Because of that training evolution, the programs will be slightly different for each of our groups.  This is due to the difference in athleticism, physical development, and training of the three groups.  Seniors and Juniors will automatically be placed in the varsity group (this does not indicate you will play on the varsity team in the spring however), Sophomores and Freshmen will be placed in the JV group.  OTF Training Specifics can be found at:

Again, we told the fall players that the spring season begins in November this year.  As a coaching staff we feel STRONGLY about every player participating in OTF training.  It’s paramount to our teams success!
