The expectation is that students are at sectionals. There is a lot of work that goes into preparing for camp. Obviously, we’ll have students that are gone for camps, trips, etc. We understand that’s a part of summertime, too, and we believe that’s a good opportunity for everyone. However, if you are in town, the expectation is the same as any other sports team. Your employers have had other workers with commitments to teams, so this isn’t a new idea to any boss in town. We’ve been personally working with coaches to build a practice/sectional schedule that allows students to participate in both activities.
