Columbia Ravens Message - COVID-19 Readiness and Preparedness

Hi Family,

 

As the situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) quickly evolves, please know, the Columbia Ravens Football and Cheer Organization has taken proactive steps to protect our student-athletes, their families, and the communities where we live and work globally. We have a team dedicated to ensuring our families are well informed, aware of their resources, and to assist in any way we can. This is a challenging time, and we are closely monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and localities where we work and live. 

 

The CDC guidance is clear that “social distancing” helps slow the spread of this virus. During this difficult time for everyone, we are not losing sight of the importance of ensuring our Columbia Ravens families are safe, aware and informed. 

 

We are much more than a high-powered football and cheer organization. What makes the Columbia Ravens most successful is, we’re family first. So, we set aside the football and cheer talks about combines, pre-season workouts and cheer competitions. The immediate and most important focus is our families and their well-being. We remain committed to our student-athletes and their families.  

 

Below are resources, advice, guidance and counsel to help you whether the unpredictable storms during the COVID-19 crisis. A team of professionals in each of the below areas are standing by and ready to assist you with questions, concerns and/or assistance.
