As most of you are aware, Governor Tom Wolf released preliminary guidance for sports
to operate during COVID-19. The BASD Athletic Department is currently designing an Athletics
Health and Safety plan which must be aligned with the BASD Health and Safety plan. The
Athletics Health and Safety plan must receive approval from the BASD Board of School
Directors before any activities can take place.
I understand everyone’s excitement about the preliminary guidance from the State on
June 10, 2020, the detail of the guidance goes far above the yellow or green phase. There are
many steps and protocols we need to develop and implement to insure our student-athletes and
staff are in a safe environment. The creation and execution of these plans involves research,
educating staff and student-athletes, collaboration with league officials (PIAA, District One, and
Pioneer Athletic Conference) and input from our medical advisors. Once a plan is in place and
approved we will be able to take the next step.
The Athletic Department and Administration are working to develop these plans to
ensure the health and safety of our student-athletes both on and off the playing surface.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
Dominic M. Palladino, M.S.Ed., CAA
Director of Athletics
