Bison Athletics- Return to Sports -
Important InformationDear Bison Families,
The Governor, the National Federation of State High School Associations, and the Ohio High School Athletic Association are allowing athletic teams to begin summer activities under strict guidelines.
Our fall, winter and spring high school head coaches will be reaching out to their athletes and parents about reopening and to review our health and safety protocols for returning to play. Some teams will begin their off season programming in the next 5-7 days. Others will begin in a few weeks, and a few others won't start until early August. Middle School athletes will begin practices the first or second week in August. Prior to these workouts, our athletes and parents must attend the coaches' return to play training session. During the training session, coaches will review our health and safety protocols which have been submitted to the Cuyahoga County Board of Health for approval.
Student athletes and coaches will maintain proper social distancing during workouts and adhere to all of our procedures in order to maximize safety. Our Summer Health & Safety Protocols for Return to Play can be viewed by clicking on this link.
Summer training sessions are NOT mandatory and will have no impact on future team selection processes. If you do not feel comfortable attending, you do not need to do so.
All student athletes (7th - 12th grade) must have an updated physical on file prior to participation in any workouts. Here is the link to the OHSAA Physical Examination Form that parents/guardians and your child's doctor need to complete. The completed physical examination form must be sent to our Athletic Trainer, Julie Brough at email@example.com. Physical examination forms are valid for 13 months. Without this form submitted, student athletes will not be permitted to workout. If your child’s physical exam has expired or will be expiring soon, I encourage you to contact your physician and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
All families must log into Infinite Campus to complete the "Annual Update" through the Parent Portal. Log into Infinite Campus, and click "More" on the bottom left. Then click "Annual Update" and follow the onscreen directions. Complete all sections of the update (including all questions regarding athletics). This update is required to be completed annually. If you need assistance logging into Infinite Campus please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have not yet signed up for a sports team (fall, winter or spring), you can do so by clicking on this link. This will allow our coaches to connect with our athletes and families.
If you have any questions, contact me via email at email@example.com or you can contact our coaches, as their contact information is listed on our athletic department website (https://www.beachwoodschools.org/GoBison.aspx).
I look forward to seeing all of you soon. Please stay safe.

Important Info Regarding Team Schedule
Hello Bison Swim Club Parents,
First off, we would like to thank Karli for her time and efforts and wish her well. She made a big impact on our program the past 10 years. From a historical perspective, I have known Karli for almost 20 years as a coach at Beachwood and as a swimmer for my previous club team. She has been a big and important part of my life, and I wish her tons of success.
Below are a few important messages regarding the Bison Swim Club.
Unfortunately, due to time constraints we need to postpone our Halloween Party. I feel bad that we have to postpone, but Karli was heading this up and I am not sure of the details. I hate to disappoint the kids, therefore, we will plan a Thanksgiving or Holiday Party in Nov or early Dec. If there are any parents that wish to help me plan this event please let me know.
Swim Meets in November
I will send out an email to swimmers/families who are attending the meet this weekend on Wed night or Thursday once the meet host posts the final team warm ups. I will do this again for the second swim meet also. I am at the mercy of the meet director. Please bear with us. I will be coaching at the meet on Saturday.
