DTSD Approves a Health and Safety Plan for Athletics
The Derry Township Board of School Directors approved a Health and Safety Plan for Athletics on June 22, 2020. As a result, DTSD coaches and athletes may resume formalized sports-related activities, including conditioning, practices and games starting July 1, 2020. The plan was developed based on the guidance and recommendations from various federal, state, and local governments including but not limited to The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH), as well as the National Federation of State High School Associations (NHFS) and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletics Association (PIAA). The recommendations set forth in the health and safety plan will be adjusted as needed as new information becomes available in order to decrease the risk of exposure for our coaches, staff, athletes, and spectators.

Hershey Girls Tennis Sign-up – Fall 2020
The fall tennis season will be quickly approaching… now is the time to start working out, taking lessons, and just hitting whenever you can! In order to better prepare for the upcoming season, Coach Bev and I have been doing pre-pre-season workout sessions for a month or two before the season actually starts. These workout sessions will be held at the Areba courts every Monday and Thursday from 4:00-5:30 beginning on July 6th, pending the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite all girls interested in coming out for tennis this season to come join us at as many sessions as possible. It is very strongly recommended that you attend as many workouts as possible because pre-season is only one week long and will be used solely for challenge matches and determining lineups. Therefore, these summer workouts will include cardio, and technique drills that will be very beneficial going into the season. We will have an official meeting closer to pre-season to go over all of the team rules and expectations. However, we welcome all girls interested to come out over the summer to properly prepare for the season ahead! If you have any questions regarding the tennis sign ups and workout sessions, please feel free to contact either Coach Bev or me. We look forward to seeing you all in July!
