Spring Athletics Health and Safety Plan

We are pleased to announce plans for the beginning of the spring sports season and look forward to seeing our athletes playing on the fields again. Schedules will be posted on soon.

Of course, everything depends on our continued work to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Please recommit to our team and community compact: continue to social distance, wear your mask and practice good hand hygiene.

Covid-19 Screening/Testing

As an added layer of mitigation, Penn Charter will obtain a Covid-19 baseline surveillance screening of all spring athletes prior to the start of spring practices. On Monday, March 1, PC will offer free, on-campus PCR saliva testing, between the hours of 2:15 and 4:00 p.m., in Dooney Field House. Please sign up your student-athlete for the test.

Any spring athlete who cannot attend the March 1 testing must acquire an outside PCR Covid-19 test, 3-4 days prior to the start of practice, in order to participate. Please submit any independent testing to The Covid rapid antigen test will not be accepted as a substitute for a PCR test.

Student athletes who test positive for Covid-19 will be required to quarantine from school as per the Athletics Health & Safety Plan: Spring 2021.

During the month of March, those teams playing high-risk contact sports (boys and girls lacrosse) will participate in weekly Covid surveillance testing. Students who miss the weekly testing day will not be permitted to participate in athletic practices or competitions until a negative testing result is independently provided to the school.

Season Begins March 5

Providing a timely return of our test results, and weather permitting, on-campus practice will begin on Friday, March 5. Coaches may meet virtually with teams before that date. We will maintain our current protocols each day for practices and games.

Livestream Links

Penn Charter will livestream as many home events as possible. More detailed information will be shared prior to games; away games will be streamed by the host school. We will share a link, when it becomes available, on and on Twitter @wpcsports.

Spectator Policy

We will communicate our spectator policy soon. That policy will reflect the current guidelines of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health; if disease levels improve, the policy could be revised to allow for more spectators.
