Subject to Change
March 2, 2021

 

As of March 2nd, Wilco remains in RED. Sports cannot begin until Wilco is in ORANGE or YELLOW (depending on the level of contact and if the sport is indoors or outdoors.) Unfortunately, due to continued high rates of COVID-19 transmission, spring sports are not possible this year. 

 

The following sports are unable to be offered due to COVID-19 Transmission levels:

Baseball

  • Interest Survey Results: There was enough interest indicated for the Varsity League season only.
  • COVID-19 Transmission Levels: For Varsity League Baseball registration to open, we must be in ORANGE by 3/9. In order to transition to ORANGE, Wilco must be below 12.7 new cases per 100,000 for 14 consistent days.
    • As of 3/1, the new infection rate was 16.9 cases per 100,000. The rate of new infection needed to be below 12.7 as of 2/23 and continue for 14 consecutive days to transition to ORANGE in time for the start of the Baseball season.
  • Please see the Baseball webpage for more information.

 

Spring Tennis

      • Interest Survey Results:
        • There was insufficient interest indicated for High School Spring Tennis. 
        • There was adequate interest indicated for Middle School Spring Tennis.
  • COVID-19 Transmission Levels: In an effort to make every attempt to provide a Spring Tennis season this year, we have planned two possible scenarios:
    • (First choice) Competitive Spring Tennis w/ State Tennis Tournament (TCSAAL) - To have the opportunity to proceed with this season, the following must be true:
      • Williamson County must be in ORANGE by 2/16/2021.
      • In order to transition to ORANGE, Wilco must be below 12.7 new cases per 100,000 for 14 consistent days. (As of 2/11, the new infection rate was 28.4 cases per 100,000.)
    • (Second choice) Intramural Spring Tennis - To have the opportunity to proceed with this season, the following must be true:
      • Williamson County must be in ORANGE by 2/19/2021.
      • In order to transition to ORANGE, Wilco must be below 12.7 new cases per 100,000 for 14 consistent days. (As of 2/11, the new infection rate was 28.4 cases per 100,000.)
  • Please see the Spring Tennis webpage for more information.

 

Spring Running

  • Interest Survey Results: There was enough interest indicated.
  • COVID-19 Transmission Levels: To have the opportunity to proceed with this season, the following must be true: Williamson County must be in YELLOW by 2/25/2021.
    • For this to be possible, Wilco must be in ORANGE by 2/11/2021. In order to be in ORANGE by 2/11/2021, Williamson County must have fewer than 12.7 new cases per 100,000 as of 1/28/2021, and the steady and significant decline in transmission rate must continue everyday for 14 consecutive days, or until 2/11/2021. Wilco reported the new rate of infection for 1/28 was 55.5 cases per 100,000. Therefore, the new rate of infection in Williamson County is such that we will not be able to be in YELLOW by 2/25/2021 in order to offer a Spring Running season. 
    • Unfortunately, this means that the Spring Running has been cancelled for this year.

The following sports are cancelled this year due to insufficient interest demonstrated on the Interest Survey:

  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Spring Dance
  • Spring Tennis - High School
