Dear Athletes, Parents and Guardians,  


Today the CIAC releases their plan for the Winter Season Plan .  At 3pm we concluded our meeting with CIAC.  There is a 33 page document to process, but for your planning purposes I wanted to share what I can right now with you for planning.

  1. In the parent portal we have a Covid Form for parents to sign, that many of you already signed.  Today we received guidance that we will need to send a new updated one out.  This will be posted in the Parent portal tomorrow at 12:00pm 
  2. All Athletes who test positive during the season can return to play with a note from a doctor specific to return to athletics and for those with Moderate to severe Covid reactions they must follow a 7 day return to play protocol.  Thus missing 21 days.  Like everything Covid this is subject to change 
  3. According to the document released today any athlete who has had covid 19, prior to the start of the season possibly will need a specific note to play winter sports from their doctor.  Pending a meeting with our local DPH.  
  4. All Schedules for next week will be posted for next week will on our Athletic Website.  
  5. Please make sure that you have all forms filled out in the Athletic Locker in Powerschool and your child is signed up for a sport so that the coach can communicate for you.
  6. Please let me know if you have any questions, I will check my emails all weekend and on Monday with no school and get back to you as soon as possible.  I look forward to getting our athletes playing the sports they love again on Tuesday, so again I will be available all weekend and Monday to help.
  7. More information will be send out tomorrow 


Dear student-athletes,

Yesterday, the CIAC released information regarding the mitigation strategies that were approved by the Board of Control this past Thursday, as well as, the letter from the CT DPH to the CIAC. Based on this information, we are on track to begin moderate and lower risk winter sports (Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball, boys swim and Ice Hockey) on January 19, 2021.   The CIAC has postponed Competitive Cheerleading, Competitive Dance, Indoor Track, and Wrestling.

The final step will be the approval of the CIAC WInter Sports Plans by their Board of Control at their meeting on Thursday, January 14, 2021. We are planning for a quick turnaround to be able to start on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. In the letter to the CIAC, the DPH said, "DPH continues to recommend a cautious approach to any restart of athletic activities".   As we get more information we will send it out to you as soon as possible.


Stephen Baldwin

Brookfield High School Athletic Director



"The CIAC Board of Control acted this morning to postpone all winter sports to January 19, 2021. The CIAC Board of Control will continue to collaborate with the DPH, Governor Lamont’s office, and the CSMS Sports Medicine Committee in the weeks leading up to the January 19th start of winter practices. CIAC Interscholastic athletics are an education-based experience that maintains in-person learning and the health and safety of our school communities as our top priority. Today’s action supports our member schools while they continue to manage rising COVID numbers within their communities and experience widespread movements to distance learning."


This means that there will be no practice, any type of conditioning or organized practice until January 19, 2021.  As we receive information we will get it out to you as soon as we can.   Obviously a later start date may impact what the CIAC stated as an alternative season.  I do not have an answer to what the plans are as of right now for that season.  This is the only information that we received today.  


Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

All Athletic activities at BHS are postponed until January 19 which is the official start date as of today and is subject to change.

The Brookfield High School community believes that the Interscholastic Athletic Program contributes significantly to preparing our students for becoming productive, contributing citizens to our society. Interscholastic Athletics provides an exceptional opportunity for personal growth as it will foster appropriate physical, social and emotional development, character, integrity and leadership as well as confidence, self esteem and a positive self image. Student-athletes learn to accept responsibility for both success and failure while recognizing their individual strengths and limitations.    Athletes also learn about valuable qualities such as, dedication, responsibility, accountability, respect, commitment, hard work, self discipline, personal sacrifice and fair play.  Brookfield High School is a Class Act School and follows the CIAC Class Act School Guidelines.

Student-athletes will learn the importance of unity, loyalty, camaraderie, teamwork, spirit and sportsmanship.We believe that participation in a wide variety of activities is a vital part of the student-athletes’ educational experiences. Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, the program, the student body, the community and to the students’ themselves.

These experiences contribute to the development of learning skills and emotional patterns that enable the student to make maximum use of his or her education. Though wins and losses are often indicators of the level of success, the real triumphs are often those that teach skills needed for effective decision-making and commitment throughout life.
