Greetings Husky Families,
As COVID-19 numbers continue to decline, we are being allowed to reduce some of the restrictions that we have been under since last March. One area seeing positive changes is athletics. For the first time, students are able to engage in two cohorts at one time, and we hope this allows more of our students to participate in conditioning and athletic activity as detailed below. Look forward to continued updates, and if there are any questions regarding the specifics of these offerings, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Athletic Director, Harvey Kitani (Hkitani@rollinghillsprep.org) or Assistant Athletic Director, Lance Hollandsworth (LHollandsworth@rollinghillsprep.org).
Please note: the following information is also located on the "Announcements and Events" page of our website under the "Community" tab.
New and returning boys and girls soccer players will begin practice on March 3 and 5 from 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM. Players interested should bring cleats, shin guards, and athletic attire.
A potential football season looks promising with an opponent lined up for Saturday, March 13. It is not too late to join! Football practice is currently scheduled Monday - Friday from 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM. If you have any questions regarding the football program, you can contact the head football coach Dan Spahr (email@example.com) or assistant football coach Lance Hollandsworth.
The cheer team has been meeting and practicing for months in preparation for the coming athletic events. Congrats to Bobbi Spahr and the cheerleaders and we hope to see them at competitions in the coming weeks.
Baseball and Softball
These two spring sports are approved to begin practices in March. Interested students should email the athletic office with their name, grade, and sport of interest so they can be provided with news and updates on the season’s status.
Surfing and Golf
We are gathering names of interested students for the golf and surf teams. There will be more information to come on a prospective season. Again, interested students should email the athletic office with their name, grade, and sport of interest so they can be provided with news and updates.
US sailing is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid to late March. Regattas will be scheduled for April and May. Practices will take place at King Harbor Yacht Club (KHYC) in Redondo Beach. Those interested can reach out to Debbie Murad at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will keep them updated with the next steps.
Protocols and policies as mandated by the Los Angeles Department of Health and will need to be adhered to at all times. Prior to any athletic practice or competition, students must complete an athletic physical and submit an emergency form. These forms can be copied and sent to coach Hollandsworth in the athletic department.
In other athletic news, we are thrilled to announce Clarice Akunwafo’s selection as a McDonald’s All American. This prestigious award is given to a few of the nation’s top basketball players, and we are excited to see Clarice’s talents and character recognized!
Now more than ever, Go Huskies!!
