Horry County Schools will cease athletic conditioning until further notice. Though the team has not reported a positive COVID-19 case, as numbers start to climb in the county, they’ve decided to take action. A statement has not been issued addressing the 2020 season.
Typically, football and other athletic conditioning take place every summer in preparation for the new school year. No equipment was permitted this June, and only nine players were allowed per each coach pod. This was in regulation with COVID-19 social distancing requirements. As of now, there hasn’t been any news regarding the cancelation of the actual sporting season.
All coaches were told this news prior to the Fourth of July weekend. This was done in part by the assumption of celebrations that could potentially spread the virus. The suspension is in place until further notice. For now, athletes will sit tight and wait for more news regarding their conditioning and the future of their season.
