We achieve these goals by organizing events, fundraisers, projects, and assist in building the pride and spirit in all Linden Athletic Programs.
Linden Athletic Boosters Club Members,
We just wanted to send you an update on our planning for fundraisers at this time and information on Linden High sports.
Though most all of you realize we wouldn’t be able to hold our Annual Kick-Off Dinner-Dance as planned on August 29th due to the Corona Virus restrictions, we just wanted to confirm that regretfully that is the case. We have discussed the possibility of rescheduling the event to a future date if the restrictions for large gatherings are lifted. One possibility may be to hold it in unison with the start of the fall sports season. At this time, fall sports competition is planned to begin in January 2021.
In respect to the plan for Linden High School sports, we wanted to pass on some information. Please see the letter below from our Linden Unified School District Athletic Director, Robert Posehn, which he drafted for families of Linden High. Click here for the CIF press release/sports schedule Robert refers to in the letter.
I hope this message finds you safe and healthy. The CIF has released the 2020/2021 sports schedule. The seasons have been split into 2 sessions. The first session sports will be football, volleyball, and cross-country. Practices are set to begin on December 7 for football and cross-country, while volleyball starts on December 14. All of the other sports begin practices between February 22 and March 15. I know you all have questions so don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-320-4794. If you have questions specific to football, please contact Chris Herrera at 209-649-8863. Most of our coaches will have conditioning programs or online zoom meetings to keep student-athletes and parents up-to-date on any changes. I have attached the CIF press release so you can find your student-athletes specific sport and the start date for it. Some rules have been modified for this season so again don't hesitate to reach out with any concerns. We are here to make your student-athlete's experience a positive one. I can't wait to see you on in the stands, on the field, on the pitch, on the court, on the course, and in the halls! Go Lions!
Robert Posehn, Athletic Director
These are unprecedented times for all of us and we are trying to be sympathetic with the hardship many are enduring. Unfortunately, due to Corona Virus restrictions we had to cancel our Golf Tournament in April, our Reverse Raffle in June and now the Kick-Off Dinner. We are hopeful that Linden High and Linden Youth sports will take place in the near future, so for now we do want to plan to have a few of our fundraisers that do not include large gatherings. With that said, we plan to still hold our World Series Pool (WS is presently planned to begin October 23rd) and will begin sales of a 2021 CASH Calendar very soon.
Look for our annual newsletter to come out within the next couple months. In the meanwhile, stay safe and sane!
