Summer Weights and Conditioning Plans for Summer of 2020

Friday, May 8th, 2020

USD 232 is committed to taking all steps necessary to help maintain the safety of students and staff in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we are following the Governor’s plan to reopen Kansas, along with guidance from Johnson County health officials, as well as cooperating with all Johnson County public school districts and following KSHSAA guidelines.

Our current plan is to offer our Strength and Conditioning beginning June 1 through online programming. We cannot allow for in-person workouts under the current plans to reopen Kansas. We will offer virtual workouts that student-athletes can complete at home that will include video demonstrations from our Strength Coaches. We will operate our strength and conditioning program under this virtual format until school districts are allowed to safely resume face-to-face workouts.

Athletes will need to download two apps to their mobile device, which include the RACK Performance App and the VNN Team App. These apps will be used by our coaches to push out workouts and sport specific drills. The RACK Performance APP will be used for strength and conditioning. The VNN Team App will be used for sport specific teams. Each APP will have an access code for each athlete to join their appropriate teams and weights sessions. These access codes can be found on the Summer Weights & Conditioning Information page. Athletes are encouraged to sign up ASAP.

Payment for Summer Weights and Conditioning will remain at $40.00. Athletes once again receive a t-shirt at some point throughout the program. We ask that families use Venmo to pay for the summer program before the first session on June 1. We also ask that when submitting your payment on Venmo that you type your athletes name inside the “What’s it for?” box before submitting. The Summer Weights Program Venmo user name to search for is “DHSSummerWeights”, you will also see our strength logo, so you can be sure you are paying the correct user. We will also accept checks and cash payments, but those will be delayed due to mailing and the school building being closed. There is more information on the Summer Weights information sheet regarding payment information.
