Stage 1: Return to Play

Please see the message below and attached documents from the IHSA, regarding Stage 1:  Return to Play.  Also, attached is a mandatory waiver form that needs to be completed for each student participating in conditioning.  


I know there is a great deal of positive anticipation for our member schools to resume activities as quickly as possible. And I couldn’t agree more that our students need the direction and camaraderie that activities provide them.  We will proceed with caution and follow the guidelines provided to us by our IHSA sports medicine advisory committee and the Illinois Department of Public Health. 

Attached are guidelines that were developed by the IHSA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee, reviewed and approved by the IHSA Board of Directors and approved by the Illinois Department of Public Health. 

  • All activities of students with coaches during this Stage 1 Return to Play need to be approved by local school districts and local health departments.

Additionally, below is a link to a safety video that the MJROTC instructors put together to show the areas that they will be using and the protocols they will be following during this time.  This video demonstrates  what equipment and procedures we will be following during Stage 1 of Return to Play!
