Weight Room Opens July 6 – Info and Rules for Athletes

The Weight Room will open for Assumption athletes beginning Monday, July 6.  Set hours and specific guidelines must be followed at all times. At this time, lifting sessions are for our returning students (grades 10-12). Incoming 9th graders will have an introductory unit for the Weight Room when school begins, or possibly later this summer.

All training sessions are limited to 24 athletes. Each session will consist of a 12–15 minute warm-up/plyo workout, 35-40 minute lift, and a 5 minute clean-up.

Once an athlete is placed in a session with a group of three or a partner, they will not be allowed to change sessions or training partners.  If an athlete cannot attend at their assigned time, they will not be able to attend that day.  We will assign baseball/softball players a session when their season is over if they are wanting to lift at Assumption.

Update: 2020 Assumption Baseball & Softball Schedule and Guidelines


2020 Baseball and Softball Schedules and Guidelines

Dear 2020 Assumption Baseball and Softball Parents,

We are very happy to provide a shortened summer sports season at Assumption.  We are asking our parents for understanding and some help along the way.  All practice and game guidelines are posted on our school website.  We need to have great cooperation and 100% compliance with all guidelines to make this a safer environment for our players, coaches and families.

Our coaches are instructed to take attendance daily and ask each player if they had their temperature taken.  Players must be dropped off and parents must leave or remain in their vehicles during practice.  No one other than players, coaches and school officials are allowed at practices.  If any player has been tested positive or exposed to COVID-19, please contact the Assumption Administration immediately.

Players must bring their own water/beverage, food and hand sanitizer and should not share with others.  When possible, please have players use their own equipment and clean this equipment daily.  Players are expected to maintain social distancing at practices and whenever possible.  Players should wash hands and shower at home following all practices and games.

Transportation – At the varsity level, our players and coaches will meet at a specified time for away games that are in Iowa Quad Cities. (All Davenport, Bettendorf, Pleasant Valley and North Scott).  For all games that are outside the immediate area, Assumption High School will provide transportation to and from the games, however we strongly encourage players going home with their parents if possible.  Please notify the coaches before leaving with your player.  Players riding our buses will sit one person to a seat and are encouraged to wear a mask while on the bus.  Parents may transport their player as long as this is communicated to the coaches prior to leaving.  Buses will not stop to eat on any trips.

All MAC schools other than Assumption will be limiting game attendance at their facilities to three (3) “Gate Passes” per player.  Anyone attending games at all other MAC schools must have a “Gate Pass” to purchase admission to the games.  These “Gate Passes” will be given to each player prior to the games.  We are not planning to limit our attendance at home games as long as social distancing can be maintained.

Please review all guidelines and check for new information often.  Good communication is a must in the situation we are facing.  Please continually remind your players of the guidelines and be teaching them to be self-aware of their own behavior, listen to their coaches and follow directions.  Good luck to all and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.  Let’s have a Great summer and Let’s Go Knights!

Yours in the Assumption Spirit,

Wade King
