High school football is moving forward in North Carolina. Tuesday, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association voted to allow teams that are currently conducting summer conditioning to move to Phase 2 in the organization’s reopening plan.

According to Langston Wertz, Jr. of the Charlotte Observer, here are some highlights to Phase 2:

  • Sharing of equipment is permissible within small groups/pods.
  • Wearing protective equipment remains prohibited.
  • Equipment must be disinfected frequently, and it requires disinfecting prior to use by another pod.

Right now, the NHSCAA is hoping to open Fall camps on September 1. As far as Phase 2 is concerned, the state’s governing body will leave it up to the individual school districts on who wants to participate.
