Charleston County School District (CCSD) will suspend summer athletic practices effective Thursday, July 2 due to the recent and continuing rise in COVID-19 cases in the Charleston area. The suspension of summer athletic practices mirrors the suspension of in-person student summer academic enrichment programs until at least July 20. The suspended practices are not a result of an increase in COVID-19 among student-athletes, but more in response to the increase in the larger community.
This action is a response to the increase in COVID cases in Charleston County," said CCSD Athletic Director Bob Olson. "We are very proud of the protocols that our high schools and coaches have put in place to keep our student-athletes safe during the conditioning practices, but we are part of the larger community and felt this was a necessary response to help slow down the spread."
