As autumn days grow cooler and shorter, Frisch is making sure to keep its vibrant athletics program going strong. For nearly three months, the campus was able to hold all activities outdoors with soccer, softball, baseball, basketball, volleyball, fencing, wrestling, track, swim and lacrosse all enjoying the mild fall afternoons and various courts and fields. But with changing conditions outside, the administration got creative to maintain Frisch Athletics, while still having fun, so student athletes would not miss out on team bonding, healthy movement and life long memories.
Frisch’s highly thorough, skilled and conscientious medical committee evaluated the Frisch gymnasium—perhaps the largest in the yeshiva league—and determined that there was ample space to create social distancing for the athletes, ultimately giving the go-ahead to begin practices inside. Participants wear masks and each grade divides into pods when it comes to scrimmages. With the safety of our athletes and coaches always a top priority, students are able to continue their passion for playing basketball, volleyball, floor hockey, lacrosse, fencing and wrestling indoors.
Thanks to the generosity of the McKay Ice arena, boys and girls ice hockey are able to continue. And of course girls swim, thanks to the creative minds of the coaches, will be holding dry land practices for their team.
