Announcements and Important Events
Dear EWA Families,
Below is a Q & A overview explaining the current status of EWA Athletics for the 2020-2021 school year.
1. Will EWA high school sports align with the NCHSAA amended sports calendar?
YES! High school sports will follow the NCHSAA amended sports calendar for this year.
2. Will EWA have middle school sports this year?
YES! However, we will not be following the NCHSAA high school calendar. The CCMS Middle School conference met this week and had to reevaluate an appropriate way to fit in a calendar based around rentals, facilities and when conference schools are allowed to begin to play. It is a challenge for schools with only one gym and one field to properly fit in games and practices. After discussing all information, it was determined that if our middle schools followed the high school calendar, teams would only have approximately 50% of the conference participating and practices/tryouts for middle school teams would be affected negatively. Therefore, the CCMS middle school conference created a 2021 CCMS amended sports calendar. We understand that this calendar creates a very unique set of seasons, however, we truly feel that this is the best option available and we are excited to be able to offer sports to our middle school athletes!
3. How and when will workouts begin?
EWA High School Athletics will start to phase in workouts in October based on the order they begin in the school year. Dates will be posted shortly. Other sports will follow closer to the time of the start of their season. Middle School will not have workouts, their season will start on the first day of the middle school sports calendar.
4. Where do I go to get information for tryouts for certain sports teams?
For required participation forms please visit our EWA Athletic Website. Please fill out and submit your tryout packet to Coach Eason via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We understand that the uncertainty and forever changing information that has surrounded us over the past few months are taxing on our athletes, parents and coaches. We continue to appreciate your support of EWA athletics and we look forward to getting our student-athletes back on the playing field very soon!
