Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will not kick-off summer workouts on Monday as planned due to health considerations surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
“We have consulted with local public health officials, discussed readiness with athletic directors, and reviewed current conditions in our county and the state of North Carolina. Our analysis has revealed that there is much uncertainty and many unanswered questions at the present time. “In view of those considerations, we believe it is in the best interest of our student athletes and our staff to postpone resumption of on-campus athletic activity until we have a greater confidence that doing so will be in an environment that protects health.”Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools statement
Last month, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association made the decision to allow schools to start holding workouts June 15, but placed the decision in the hands of the school districts themselves.
