During student activities, the following safety protocols should be followed:

  • Masks need to be worn by coaches and student-athletes at all times (including sideline and bench). It is up to the coach(es) discretion to suggest when student-athletes might remove their masks, based on the intensity level of physical activity happening at any given time. Masks will be removed for competition.
  • All athletes are required to bring their own water bottles and should be dressed in workout attire. It is suggested that you bring 32oz of water with you in order to stay properly hydrated.
  • DeLaSalle will provide transportation to and from a practice or competition for in-person hybrid students. Students learning from home on a hybrid day and full distance learning students will coordinate their own transportation to practice/competition venues and home. Students who choose to provide their own transportation to and from a practice or competition must complete and file with the Student Activities office a DLS Self Transportation Waiver before the season start date and/or before the student begins self transportation.
  • Students may quickly change into their practice or game attire in the locker room and may NOT use a bathroom to change.

Important Fall Sports Update

The following is a message that the Student Activities office communicated to all families on August 5:

Dear DeLaSalle Families,

We are writing to update you about student activities this year at DeLaSalle. As always, our first priority is the health and safety of our students, coaches, moderators, families, and staff. We thank you for your patience in these unprecedented times.

Fall Sports Update

The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) board of directors met on Tuesday to review and approve plans for fall sports. The league has approved the following individual and team fall sports to start, with modifications, on Monday, August 17:

  • Cross Country
  • Girls’ Tennis
  • Girls’ Swimming and Diving
  • Girls’ and Boys’ Soccer

We will send an additional communication as we learn more about the modifications to these sports and finalize specific details, including practice plans, schedules, COVID-19 directives, and information about Parent/Athlete/Coach (PAC) Meetings. We have been coordinating our plans with school administration, the league, and the Tri-Metro Conference to provide the best possible experience for students.

As a reminder, students may not participate in a sport at DeLaSalle until they have completed the following requirements:

In a separate action, the MSHSL on Tuesday postponed volleyball and football until the spring in what is being called a “fourth season.” The league has indicated additional work is needed to schedule seasons through the winter and spring to provide opportunities for participation in multiple activities with minimal overlap of seasons. We await further direction from the league and, as we learn more, will communicate to students registered in those sports.

Registering for Student Activities

Many DeLaSalle students also choose to participate in non-athletic clubs and organizations through our robust student activities program. These co-curricular activities provide students with opportunities to connect with their classmates, enrich their skills, and pursue topics that interest them.

We encourage students to explore the many activities we offer here. And we invite students to register here to participate in a club or organization.

We are committed to providing the best possible experience for all students, whether they choose to participate in a sport or an activity. Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions and we look forward to sharing additional updates with you soon.

Sincerely,

Keelie Sorensen
Director of Student Activities
