News Image

Below is information regarding the start / tryout dates for all sports for the upcoming 2020 Fall Sports Season.

As a reminder, Monroe Local Schools and all interscholastic athletic programs are currently operating under the guidelines currently permitted by Governor DeWine, the Ohio Department of Health and the Butler County Health District. As of Friday, July 24, the Ohio High School Athletic Association Office continues to move forward with the normal start of the fall sports seasons, meaning practices will begin on August 1 and they currently plan to conduct our usual series of tournaments in 10 fall sports. We will continue to monitor state and local decisions that may impact the fall sports season and will provide future communications via Final Forms as necessary.  

Athletes and Parents are reminded that all athletes must be registered on Final Forms, have all required forms as listed on Final Forms completed by both the athlete and their parent and must have a valid Pre-Participation Physical exam on file with the school prior to being permitted to participate in a tryout or practice.

PLEASE REVIEW COVID-19 STUDENT-ATHLETE SAFETY GUIDELINES, PROTOCOLS AND PROCEDURES HERE.
