Rough Riders News · The Responsible Restart of Rough Rider Athletics – Summer 2020


Good Morning Rider Nation!

We are moving closer to a Responsible Restart for Rough Rider Athletics for summer conditioning for all sports. Our coaches, medial staff and administrative team are in the process of finalizing our restart plans that will place the health & safety of our athletes & coaches as our number 1 priority. It is our hope to share our Responsible Restart plans with you by the end of the week in order to get our athletes and coaches safely back on our fields and in our gyms as quickly as possible.

Here are a few items that you should be thinking about moving forward:

  • Athletes should logon to FinalForms and assign yourself to the 2020-2021 sport(s) of your choice and electronically sign all necessary forms.
  • Parents should logon to FinalForms and update all personal information and electronically sign the necessary 2020-2021 forms.
  • Due to the inconsistencies of the spring semester academically, the OHSAA has removed the academic eligibility requirement for the fall 2020 season. This means all athletes, 7-12, will be academically eligible for the 202 fall sport season.
  • The OHSAA will continue to require a valid physical for ALL athletes to participate in athletics beginning August 1st. Due to the social distancing requirements, Kent City Schools will not offer group physicals this year. So make plans now on your own to update your physicals.

Thank you for your patience during the pandemic and stay tuned for more information.
