Aviators News · Aviator Athlietics – COVID-19 Update


As we all continue to work through unprecedented times during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Athletic Department wanted to provide a few updates for Butler Athletics.  Vandalia-Butler City Schools & Aviator Athletics continue to follow recommendations from Governor DeWine’s office & the Ohio High School Athletic Association.  Obviouisly we are in a very fluid sitution, but below are some guidelines for Butler Athletics for the time being…

  • Workouts, Practices, & Games
    • All workouts, practices, & games are suspended until at least Monday April 6, as directed by Governor DeWine & the OHSAA.
    • Student-athletes should not make plans to gather in small groups to workout.  It is vitally important we all follow health care professional’s recommendations on not gathering in groups & practice social distancing, not just for ourselves, but for the betterment of our community.
  • Athletic Facilitites
    • As mandated by the OHSAA, all facilities used for athletic related purposes by Vandalia-Butler City Schools are closed and should not be used under any circumstances.
  • Fundraisers
    • Many teams are in the midst of fundraisers.  Below are guidelines that have been issued to coaches…
      • As of right now, any fundraiser that willl require “gathering” after Monday April 6 will remain on as schduled.
      • Student-athletes are permitted to continue to make sales throughout the break, but we ask that they follow these guidelines
        • Student-athletes should not collect any money from customers until Butler Athletics returns to activity.  This is to ensure that money is turned in & deposited in a timely & responsible manner.
        • Students should not attempt to make any sales that increases physical interaction.  Make contact via email, text messaging, phone calls, etc but do not do things like go “door to door”.

Ultimately our goal for all of our Aviators is to stay safe & healthy during this trying time.

Thank you for your spport of Butler Athletics & Vandalia-Butler City Schools.

We Are Aviators!
