Meridian has been using the information provided by the Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) to guide our decisions for Athletics. As of 11/19/20, WCCHD reported that the County is in the Red / Uncontrolled Community Spread phase, which is characterized by very high community transmission. Due to the fact that athletics are an extracurricular activity, Meridian has suspended indoor sports, with the potential for cancellation, until further notice. We are still hopeful that our outdoor Spring Sports will operate as planned, which means that our Fall and Winter Sports seasons will need to conclude by the scheduled end date.
The 2020 Volleyball season has moved outdoors to The PAC sand courts on Saturday, 12/5 and Saturday, 12/12. Each team can find their schedule on their level webpage and in the email sent by Meridian Athletics on 11/24/2020.
Volleyball (Girls’ Teams & Boys’ Team)
It is the intent for Volleyball to begin October 19th if in Phase II/Yellow. After much consideration of the following information, we have determined that volleyball will be offered as an intramural activity for the fall.
In keeping with our Return to Campus Protocols, there will be no large gatherings this semester, including spectators at practices or intramural games. We will however, welcome six parent volunteers to sign up in advance. (Parent volunteers will need to sign up in advance for each intramural game to occur.) Parents/guardians are invited to indicate their interest and ability to volunteer in specific capacities on the registration form in order to be considered in the pool of volunteers. We intend to rotate through this list of volunteers, giving as many interested parents/guardians the opportunity to support their child’s team and watch an intramural competition first-hand while volunteering. One of the positions will be to stream the intramural competition and broadcast it, likely through Meridian’s Volleyball Facebook group, a private Facebook group. Families can watch their student athlete play intramural games through the streamed media.
