    THESA Statement for COVID-19

    The THESA Riders organization is supporting the return of athletics for the 21-22 academic year and remains hopeful of a competitive season for our sports teams.

    However, while THESA remains hopeful for a busy season of athletics, we also plan to recognize and follow the various protocols in place at gyms, athletic fields, and other venues.  Such protocols may include temperature checks, social distancing, masking, and limiting attendance at games, to name a few.      

    To that note, we encourage all families to follow the precautions in place at these venues as well as other steps they may deem necessary to remain safe from any COVID concerns.    

    If you are sick, stay home and get well. Common sense will go a long way!
