South Whidbey High School Athletic Update


Hey Falcons,
Here is the latest update on High School athletic participation. At this time, we are cautiously moving
forward to start high school athletics in February. As with all things COVID, things can/will change!

We are planning to start Emerald Sound Conference play with normal fall sports, with Football beginning
practice on February 10th and Cross Country, Boys Tennis, Girls Soccer and Volleyball starting practice on
Monday, February 15th . We will have three seasons, about seven weeks long each. We have not
determined in what seasons the other sports will be offered.

The ability to actually start a season will be determined by Regional metrics from both the North and
Puget Sound Regions. Currently all Regions are in Phase 1; to compete most sports need their Region
to be in Phase 2. Specific information on these metrics can be found at “Roadmap to Recovery” at

The good news is we are getting closer to having high school athletics. We will continue to update and
adjust our seasons and sports as we move forward. We know that we all would like some semblance of
a schedule that we can plan on. Unfortunately, our COVID situation does not allow for that at this time.
Our goal is to get our students playing a sport they love in a Falcon jersey!

As we continue to keep our sports options open, it is possible that if we participate in another league,
we could start our athletics with Spring sports. At this time, it is imperative that you complete a South
Whidbey Athletic packet, including a physical if you plan on participating in a Fall or Spring sport.

To complete a packet, go online to https://swhs.sw.wednet.edu/swhs/athletics/athletic_forms and fill
out a form, email it to the high school, or drop it off at the main office 7:30--2:30, M/T/Th/F. If you need
information regarding your student athlete’s current physical status, please call Ms Bilyeu at 360-221-
6808 x5423. This form/physical needs to be completed prior to a student athlete’s participation at

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Lagerstedt at plagerstedt@sw.wednet.edu, or call at 360-
221-6808 x5408

Take Care, Be Safe, and Go Falcons!
