Fall Sport Workouts scheduled for July 6 have been delayed to a date TBD.
Fall sport workouts that were supposed to begin on July 6 have postponed to a date TBD. Please see the letter below from OCS.
Orange County Schools and our Athletics Committee, consisting of principals, athletic directors, athletic trainers, and district officials, has made the difficult decision to postpone the start of voluntary athletic summer workouts. Due to the rapidly changing landscape of COVID-19, in the late afternoon of July 2, after OCS communicated that athletics would continue on July 6th, we became aware of other information that caused us to make a change in our decision. We apologize for any inconvenience that this decision may have caused.
OCS is committed to the health and safety of our students and staff and our decision to postpone athletics was made with this commitment at the forefront. While our Athletics Committee has worked hard to develop a solid safety plan for the return to athletics and we are prepared to start athletics when it is safe to do so, we felt the decision to postpone needed to be made for the following reasons:
The district hopes to avoid any start, stop and re-start scenarios for athletes
The district is making every effort to ensure the safety of students, staff, and the community.
The advice of area health professionals
OCS is continuing to evaluate when to resume athletic activities. Any resumption will be conducted with the health and safety of our student-athletes and staff in mind and in compliance with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s (NCHSAA) Reopening of Sports/Activities Summer Guidelines. OCS will also follow guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Orange County Health Department.
The following area school districts have also decided to postpone their original July 6th start date: Alamance-Burlington School System, Cabarrus, Charlotte-Mecklenburg, Durham, Guilford, Wake, Winston-Salem/Forsyth.
We have also been monitoring the trends from across the country and states, like Tennessee, that started athletics approximately 4 weeks before the NCHSAA allowed for the start of athletics have since had to stop high school athletics. We again want the health and safety of our student-athletes to be at the forefront of all of our decisions.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.

BOYS LACROSSE | Varsity
Welcome to the Cedar Ridge High School Lacrosse team's page.
2020 is going to an exciting year for our squad as work to build our squad and compete for a Conference title. This year our conference is split from the all-sports 3A Big Eight conference and will consist of ourselves, Northern Durham, Roxboro Community School, Vance Charter and Orange. It will be tough. We will also challenge ourselves in our out-of-conference schedule. Our schedule is up on Maxpreps.com, so take a look and plan to come out and support your Red Wolves.
Every team is different, but the young men involved in our program have great character and I look forward to again being out there, working with them, and helping them to grow.
Our Spring sport parents meeting is taking place this Wednesday, february 5th at 6:00 pm. Please come out and meet the coaches and support staff here at Cedar Ridge.
A couple of key items need to be taken care of by every player intending to play this spring:
1) You must have a valid physical on file with the CRHS Athletic Department. Please bring a copy of the your physical if you have not already done so. Physicals are good for 395 days so if you have had one done within the last year, your doctor can provide you with a copy.
2) All players intending to try out must register on the 8to18 system and complete all of the paperwork required, including concussion awareness, sportsmanship acknowledgement and the student athlete/parent code of conduct.
3) Once these are completed, and academic eligibility has been verified, you can pick up your Ticket-to-Play (T2P). The T2P is to be given to us at the first day of practice in order to participate.
If you have participated in fall or winter sports, you should be okay just checking in with us about specific schedules. If you have not participated in athletics yet this year or are new to the process, I suggest coming to the meeting to meet Coach Simmons, our Trainer, Mrs Strickland, and the coaches for this season.
Our first practice will be on Wednesday, February 12th, following school. Our practices are typically over around 6:30 pm. We are at the mercy of the weather during spring sports so please keep an eye out for e-mails giving the precise locations and times as they may change without much warning.
I will be sending out more details as we get closer. See you on the field.
