Summer Update from Chargers Athletics

by: Anthony McCall, Athletic Director
Chargers Athletics summer training/conditioning has been cleared by the FHSAA to begin on the Shorecrest campus on Monday, June 15. Due to the most current guidelines set forth by the Shorecrest Health & Safety Task Force, access to athletic facilities is limited to approved coaches, groups and employees. 
  • Coaches with planned training/conditioning sessions will reach out to members of their team/sport to inform them of scheduled sessions on campus. 
  • Maximum group size is 9 athletes per 1 coach per session.
  • Fall sports teams will have priority during training/conditioning times in order to ensure teams prepping for competition will have ample time to prepare. 
  • Full details are available in the Health and Safety Statement

Athlete/Family Requirements 

  • All student-athletes are required to bring their own water bottles. Coolers will be available for refills. 
  • Student-athletes must come dressed for training/conditioning; there will be no access to locker rooms.
A required Summer Training Health form must be signed by the parent(s) of all student-athletes who will participate in summer training/conditioning. This form should be submitted to the student-athlete's coach on the first day of training/conditioning. Any student without this document filed with the Athletic Department will not be allowed to participate.

Fall Sports Tryouts and Start Dates

Tryout and season start dates for Cross Country, Swimming & Diving, Football, Volleyball, Golf, Sailing, and Cheerleading are posted - and may have changed since you last viewed them. Access the most updated information at > Athletics > Teams & Schedules.

Our new Head Boys Basketball Coach, Barry Bearden, intends to begin open gym/development sessions when he arrives in July. The dates/times will be published once confirmed.

We hope to increase availability of the athletic facilities as we progress through the summer. Updates will be posted to the Athletics webpage

All interested athletes (including incoming new students and returning students who did not play in prior years) are welcome to participate in summer training/conditioning for football and volleyball. Please contact the coach of the respective sport to make arrangements.
