All member school athletic facilities will be closed during this period to school personnel and students grades 7-12. If member school athletic facilities also serve as non-school community recreation facilities, these facilities may remain open during the moratorium so long as no school teams are playing and no school coaches are coaching the teams/individuals. During this one-week dead period, students may attend camps or competitions but may not do so with their school coaches.

July 19 through July 31 volleyball coaches are restricted to working with no more than 4 students who initiate a request for individual help/coaching instruction from their coach.
