2020-2021 Winter Sports Information
As we continue to deal with the negative impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, we would like to provide an important update regarding the winter athletic season at Addison Trail and Willowbrook.
DuPage County is in the Substantial Community Transmission level for all six factors on the DuPage County COVID-19 School Metrics Guidance. There are three levels of transmission we are monitoring weekly: Minimal, Moderate and Substantial Community Transmission. Winter sports are scheduled to begin on Nov. 16, but based on the county’s current status, we are going to continue analyzing the data to determine the best time frame. We plan to run the sports listed below, but the start date for the season is to be determined (TBD). We understand the value and importance of athletics for students’ physical and mental well-being, and we will work with our coaches to ensure we stay connected with and support our pupils.
· Boys Swimming & Diving
· Dance (Poms)
· Girls Bowling
· Girls Gymnastics
At this time, we ask all student-athletes who plan to participate in winter sports to register online. This will help with a smooth transition after we’re able to start the season.

To ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, families and community members, we are following guidance and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker, the Illinois and DuPage County health departments, the Illinois State Board of Education and the DuPage Regional Office of Education. At this time, we haven’t received approval from those organizations to allow Boys and Girls Basketball to take place during the winter season. We will continue to monitor this sport and will share any provided updates.
We know this situation is difficult, as we all want our students back at school. But more importantly, we want them safe and healthy. We appreciate your understanding and support during this unprecedented time.
