Lower Moreland Athletics Update Grades 7-12 ( December 23rd )

Hello,
 
Below you will see some important information with regards to our high school and middle school athletic programs here at Lower Moreland Township School District. 
 
PIAA & High School UPDATES: 
  • PIAA decided to reduce the number of practices from 15 to 10, before you compete in a game/match/meet.
    • We were one of a few schools in our division to even begin any type of practices prior to the three week shutdown.
    • We are still awaiting decisions on one school district as well on whether or not they will be participating in athletics this winter.
    • After that has been decided, I can work with league ADs to finalize our winter schedules.
    • My hopes are to have our schedules finalized by Wednesday January 6th. 
  • Another item with regards to practices is as follows. If our team's practice schedule has been interrupted and the team is unable to practice for more than..
    • 7 days - a team must complete 2 days of practice

    • 14 days - a team must complete 4 days of practice
