May 27, 2020, our administrative team reviewed Ohio Department of Health mandates and recommendations for re-opening our athletic facilities. We incorporated OHSAA guidelines with the information sent from the ODH to develop policies to allow our athletes the ability to start training, on campus, in the safest manner possible. As you know, mandates and guidelines from the State are changing daily. The policies developed on May 27, are at the button below. They are subject to change as new information is provided.

PLAY MORE THAN ONE SPORT
Multi - Sport Benefits
The athletic department and administration at Blanchester Local Schools promote playing as many OHSAA school sponsored sports as possible. The benefits of being a diverse athlete far out weight the potential benefits of specialization.
The benefits of multiple-sport participation include better leadership and teamwork skills from cross-training, reduced risk of burnout in one sport, a variety of experiences from involvement with different sports and teams, reduced risk of overuse injuries in one sport and exposure to a variety of coaching styles.
