Starting up again

YC athletics follows AIA's lead in initial phase of athletics activities.

Last week, the Arizona Interscholastic Association gave all Arizona high school athletics programs the option of implementing the initial phase of bringing athletics activities back to school campuses.

Yuma Catholic High School became the 1st Yuma area program to follow the AIA's lead.

On Monday, the football, volleyball and basketball programs began to hold skill position type of mini-practices, while following the current social distancing mandates.

Among the mandates in any athletic practices, athletes cannot be in any groups higher than 10 people (usually in proportions of 1 coach and 9 student athletes).

The distancing between everyone in each practice also has to be at least 6 feet.

Yuma Catholic Athletic Director, Louis Pisano explains the program's objective with the phase 1 implementation:

"They're allowing the students to at least stay active with the kids, the coaches, and the kids together and just practice the social distancing and just kind of keep the kids active."

Pisano hopes the the program can implement Phase 2 within a matter of weeks.
