March 13 - All Athletics & Activities Suspended until Further Notice
Saucon Valley Athletic Department
Effective Saturday March 14th and due to continued concerns of the health and safety of our athletes and community, the Saucon Valley Athletic Department & Saucon Valley School District has made the decision to temporarily suspend all Athletic Activities until further notice. Continued monitoring of the situation both locally and worldwide finds it essential to take every necessary precaution to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Effective Saturday March 14th, all school sponsored athletic practices, games, events, fundraisers, and team gatherings will be postponed until further notice. We will continue to reassess on a regular basis in concerns to the continuation of this suspension of activities or the ability to restart activities when conditions allow or when the office of the Governor of Pennsylvania allows.
Also during this time, all Saucon Valley School District facilities will be closed to our student athletes. We will also continue to monitor the ability to allow facility use as time moves forward.
This unprecedented step is one that we have taken with the utmost care. With a possible long-term suspension, we realize that these are seasons and moments that we may not be able to replace. Games will not be played, fun will not be had, and most importantly, positive relationships with coaches and teammates will not be formed. However, the health and safety of our students and community must be our top priority and the need to do everything possible to eliminate the spread of the COVID-19 virus must be taken.
We ask that everyone does their part in reducing the spread of this virus by staying home whenever possible, avoid large crowds, practice good hygiene many times a day, and making a change to your daily routines. Everyone must take part in helping to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus so we can all return to our normal daily routines as soon as possible.
