Important Notice about COVID-19 and the UAA 2020 Spring Season

As we prepare to head back to school in the upcoming weeks, though remotely, the board of Union Athletic Association wanted to communicate our plans for the upcoming Fall Season, including football, cheer, baseball and softball.  On Wednesday, July 15th, 2020, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) announced the delay of Fall Sports to at least September 1, 2020.  Although this announcement is specific to only High School Athletics, the Middle School program at Union Academy also follows the rules and regulations that have been set forth.  After discussions with our board members as well as with the administrative staff at Union Academy, UAA will also follow these same guidelines. We will continue to monitor the situation and will return to play as soon as the NCHSAA determines a safe and suitable resumption date.

The board would also like to communicate that the guidelines set by the NCHSAA are also being followed by all Union County public school middle school and booster programs as well as conference teams on our Middle School football schedule.  Therefore, when we are allowed to resume play, there will be no advantage to any program as we are all on an equal playing field.  During this time, UAA board members will continue to work behind the scenes to prepare opportunities for our students to resume athletics as soon as possible.  The situation remains fluid and your patience is asked and is needed as we navigate the uncertainties that lie ahead.  UAA and Union Academy recognize the importance of athletics as part of an overall education experience and in the well being of a child.  We are committed to continuing to provide these opportunities with the health and safety of our athletes, parents and coaches being our priority.

Regarding track, a meeting is scheduled for next week with other organizations to determine if being able to start a modified season is feasible at this time.  Modifications that would be included but are not limited to number of participants, dates, locations as well as the ability to allow spectators to stay in accordance with the Phase 2 guidelines that we are currently under.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to a board member or send an email to unionathletic@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you all again as soon as it is safe to return.  Until then, continue to stay healthy and follow all rules and regulations so that we can resume athletics quickly.
