RULES & SAFETY

COVID-19 RESPONSE

Safety is our first priority. As we look to reopen, we will carefully follow the plans and procedures put in place under guidance from the State of Indiana and City of Westfield. We strongly encourage all athletes and visitors to review these protocols, and know that when activity does return to campus, we’ll be ready.
These guidelines will evolve. Please check back for updates as we move forward.
