After months of working out at home due to local and state Coronavirus restrictions, thousands of high school athletes hit the fields and the courts June 8 after the UIL allowed for schools to begin summer workouts. Included were incoming 9th-12th graders at Hays High, Lehman High and Johnson High who participated in strength and conditioning and sports-specific workouts with several safety measures in place. Per UIL rules, participating students were required to stay at least six feet apart from each other during workouts, while coaches were tasked with sanitizing equipment and surfaces after each group. Outdoor workouts were limited to 25 students per group, while indoor workouts were limited to 25 percent capacity of the facility. In addition, Hays CISD required schools to conduct daily temperature checks for students and staff prior to their participation.
