Several NMUSD Sports Cleared to Resume Athletic Competition

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is pleased to announce the reinstatement of several sports activities at our high schools. With a recent change of the CDPH guidelines and the new COVID case rate for Orange County dropping under 14 this past week, NMUSD has authorized our outdoor moderate/high contact sports to compete when their season of sport officially begins. Low contact outdoor sports such as cross country, swimming, track and field, golf, and tennis were already cleared to begin during their season, but now sports such as basketball, football, water polo, volleyball (outdoor), baseball, softball, lacrosse, soccer and competitive cheer may begin competitions when their season starts.At this time, indoor sports are still not permitted to compete until the county COVID case rate drops further. NMUSD will follow the state guidelines and requirements to ensure the safety of our student athletes and coaching staff. One state requirement is that practices and inter-team competitions are not open to the public and spectators are restricted except for the team’s immediate household members. Site principals, athletic directors and coaches will communicate with student athletes and parents on specific preparations, processes, and expectations to resume athletics at each of their campuses. Our collective efforts to reduce the spread of the virus have made a difference to allow us to take another step towards normalcy. We are excited to have many of our student-athletes back in these important and meaningful student activities and will continue to update you on the status of remaining athletes to return.
