Winter Sports- AIA Modifications and Fan Policy 

The AIA's latest sport specific, covid related modifications for our upcoming winter '20-21 season can be found at the following link:

Arete Prep and the Great Hearts Middle School League will closely follow and use these modifications as we emphasize creating a safe environment for our student athletes and coaches.

As of now, the AIA, GHMSL, and Great Hearts fan policy will NOT allow spectators at our MS and HS competitions. This policy is fluid, and can change based on county and local metrics. Please stay tuned for updates, and thank you for your patience.
