With the surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the area, fueled by the highly contagious Omicron variant, the District has expanded safety protocols for all indoor athletic activities to ensure our student athletes, coaches and support staff are moving forward in the safest environments possible. The extra precautions will remain in place through Feb. 4, 2022, when the District will reevaluate the situation with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local and state public health agencies.
Indoor Athletics Guidance:
4 PAID tickets per player for household members and no other spectators for indoor sports events
Face masks that cover the nose and mouth are required for all spectators and observers. They must also socially distance at home events
All COVID-19 testing will continue for our student athletes (every Wednesday)
While these are challenging times for all of us, the health and safety of our students and staff remain our highest priority. By limiting fans at indoor athletic events, we’re limiting the exposure and the potential spread of the virus in our schools. With limited spectators at indoor events, we will livestream games utilizing our existing contracts so extended family members and fans can watch the games from home.
The District continues to work closely with local and public health officials and will provide you with any updates as they become available.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
The Grant Union High School Athletic Department is committed to a tradition of excellence through competition where we teach and model the skills of resilience, tolerance, and good citizenship.
The athletic program at Grant Union High School has a long standing legacy of greatness. The historic CIF Champion Football Team (the first in Northern California) has set the bar for the rest of a quickly growing and improving athletic program. Our men's and women's Basketball Programs have consistently demonstrated greatness with championships. With new teams in swimming, wrestling, boys' volleyball, tennis, and ESports, the Grant Pacers are charting a course toward excellence on every playing field, court, mat, screen and pool!
The ladies' soccer, basketball, and softball teams are excelling in ways that show a resurgence in our female athletes, and the boys' soccer and baseball teams, under new coaching staffs, are making enormous strides.
