Athletics and COVID-19

The safety of Bishop Dunne students, faculty and staff and their families remains a top priority of our school.  Please remember that no fans are allowed at home athletic events for:

  • Football
  • Volleyball
  • Cross Country
The Diocese of Dallas set certain parameters for the reopening of schools and left other decisions to individual schools to decide, based upon the unique situations of each locale.  The Diocese made these decisions for all its schools:   
  • All fall DPL sports for middle school students were cancelled 
  • No visitors are allowed on campus during the school day 
  • No field trips  
  • Mandatory wearing of facemasks in all classes and hallways 
  • Silent lunch periods 
TAPPS left most decisions to individual schools; they will not mandate the wearing of masks, for instance. However, as a Diocesan school, we require masks are worn by our athletes and coaching staff. Regarding spectators, TAPPS requires that if a school allows spectators, it must allow them from both the home team and the opposing team. After careful consideration, we determined we could not manage the protocols for screening and monitoring, nor uphold the required social distancing and wearing of masks for the number of fans that would be coming to our facilities.

Fan Cutouts

You've all seen the fan cutouts at many pro sporting events. We thought some of our players' families might like their likenesses to be at our sporting events. We aren't able to do this in-house, but there are several vendors online who provide fan cutouts. Shindigz provides easy to follow instructions on how to take and upload your photo. You may choose either cardboard ($19.99 plus shipping) or Corex - which is corrogated plastic ($24.99 plus shipping). Shipping cost varies based on the service you choose. 

You may ship your cutout directly to the school:
3900 Rugged Drive
Dallas, TX. 752424
attn:  Marketing
 
The Marketing team will set it up for you at home games.

ATTENTION MIDDLE SCHOOL ATHLETES!

Since DPL, our middle school athletic league, cancelled fall sports, we are offering an opportunity for our middle schoolers to participate in some athletic activity on campus. Activities will be offered from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. after school, and will be open to all BD middle school students whether learning on-campus or virtually.

A few notes: 

  • Most of the sports will be conducted outdoors (weather permitting). 
  • Masks will be required, but we will give mask breaks. 
  • Students need to have their own water bottles  
  • These sessions are open to both boys and girls.  
  • For the most part, boys will play against boys, and girls against girls, with the possible exceptions of volleyball and kickball/soccer. It is dependent on the number of participants. 
  • Balls for football, volleyball, and kickball will be sanitized periodically throughout that hour of play.

The tentative schedule for these athletic programs: 

  • Tuesday: Fundamentals of Baseball / Softball  
    • Session will be conducted by current BD parent and former MLB player, Mike Bacsik. 
  • Wednesday: Volleyball (outdoors) 
  • Thursday: Flag Football 
  • Friday: Kickball or Soccer 
  • Selected Saturday mornings in the gym: Basketball (10:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.) and Volleyball, alternate Saturdays 

Click Here to sign up! This is so we can see how many are interested and adjust as needed. Please check the tabs at the bottom of the sheet for different days and sports

Participation in these is completely voluntary, and parents/students can pick which days/sports they wish to attend. 

Please let Mr. Alfers know if you have any questions at malfers@bdcs.org
