Happy Summer, Lions!
I hope everyone is enjoying the start of another wonderful Texas summer. The athletic staff have loved seeing our athletes back on campus for our summer camps and workouts! The athletics team is so excited to join with the school in announcing some changes to our daily schedule which will allow us to have PE for our Logic school students and shift practices for our Logic athletes to the mornings to provide for more dedicated time for those teams to work and also have our varsity coaches be more involved in the development of our younger student-athletes.
I know a schedule change brings many questions to mind, especially one involving as many moving parts as adding PE to the daily schedule and shifting some of our athletic teams practice times. Below are some of the larger topics for questions and our responses to try and help our families navigate and prepare for these exciting changes.
Q: Will my Logic School student need a uniform for PE class?
A: Students will need to wear athletic shorts that match the uniform guidelines in the Student/Parent Handbook and a CDA spirit shirt. Athletic shoes will also be required and should not be their school shoes.
Q: What if my student is in season for their sport? (i.e. Volleyball season from August till November)
A: The student will go to practices as assigned by their coach and the sport program director. Most practices will be in the morning, in which case, the student would be in practice and not PE. When out of season, all Logic School athletes will be required to be in PE on their school day.
Q: Which sports will practice in the morning for Logic School?
A: Football, Volleyball, Cross Country, Basketball & Soccer will practice in the mornings on campus during their season. The spring sports, since they all take place off-campus, will take place in the afternoon as they have in the past due to not having access to facilities in the morning. The Spring Sports will go to PE on their school day and go to practices after school.
Q: What is the exact practice schedule for my student and their sport?
A: Each sport will have a parent meeting before the season starts to talk through all the details. The morning practices will start at 7:00 with the exception of cross country. Again, exact details will come from the sport’s coach and program director.
Q: Can my student come to PE on their off day?
A: No. Rest at home and get rolling on the academic work.
Q: Does my student come to sport practices on their off day?
A: The student will attend all practices assigned by the coaches on Monday through Thursday. No practices on Friday morning.
Q: Does my student need to bring food for after practice or PE?
A: Students should come with food to eat after practices if they are staying for school and will receive more direction on this from their coach or program director. Snacks after PE would also be a good idea.
Q: Where will my student change/shower after practices or PE?
A: After practices, any student who is staying for school will need to be prepared to shower in our locker room facilities. PE students will not go through as rigorous a session and should only need to “freshen up” with deodorant or shower wipes and wash their face.
Q: Who will monitor the changing/shower times?
A: Coaches from the sports in season will be stationed inside the bathrooms, by the sink area, to monitor and listen for any issues, as well as keep students aware of how much time is left before they need to get to class. No adult will be stationed inside the changing/shower area while students are getting ready.
Q: Who do I contact with any other questions leading up to the school year beginning?
Thank you all for the support as we move into our 5th year with a full athletic program at CC. Growth is a blessing which offers us opportunities to assess and strive to get better in how we serve our families. We are honored to serve the community and are looking forward to a great year together!
Grace & Peace & Go Lions!
