I recognize that there is high interest in Haverford’s plans for winter athletic competition, and with it, much concern about the safety, health, and well-being of our community. In talking with many of our faculty, students and parents, it’s also clear to me that students learn and grow in different ways and one of those is through the co-curricular opportunities that a Haverford education provides on the athletic fields.
We are proud of the fact that we were able to execute a fall season safely with no spread of COVID-19 traceable to activities in the athletic department. The indoor sports will present their own unique challenges, but we will work hard to develop individual plans for each sport that will enable us to execute them safely. If we do not feel that we can run them safely, then in the best interest of all community members, we will not have certain activities.
Lastly, we ask that all of the athletes and their families do all that they can to follow the School’s guidelines in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
