Re­stric­tions eased for preps

Chicago Sun-Times - - BY THE NUMBERS - Michael O’Brien

High school ath­letes will be able to par­tic­i­pate in sport-spe­cific ac­tiv­i­ties start­ing Mon­day. The Illi­nois De­part­ment of Pub­lic Health has ap­proved the Illi­nois High School As­so­ci­a­tion’s next phase of re­turn to play. It’s called Phase 4 to match the state’s Re­store Illi­nois plan.

Ath­letes had been lim­ited to con­di­tion­ing work­outs in groups of 10. In Phase 4, groups of 50 are al­lowed, and balls and other gear can be used. Coaches will be al­lowed 20 con­tact days with their teams that must be used be­fore Aug. 9.

Each school district must ap­prove the move into the next phase. Chicago Pub­lic Schools have not al­lowed ath­letes to work out in any ca­pac­ity so far.
