First TN District

First TN District

For the following counties:  Carter, Greene, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi, and Washington
Coordinator:  Teresa Sutphin  
Phone:  423-722-5120


2021 Dates:  CANCELED for 2021  _ See letter below for more information.
The following rule will be in place for any districts who have to cancel, or those who do not offer certain sports:

“Any event not offered at an individual's home district will be considered an open event.”

Meaning that athletes from those districts will automatically waive on to the 2022 state finals. 


After a lot of discussion and reviewing the COVID-19 cases and rising numbers in our district, we have decided to CANCEL the 2021 First TN district senior Olympics.  

Our healthcare system in our district is stressed right now, and we don't want to add to or be the cause of this situation worsening.  We don't want to put you, our staff, volunteers (student or otherwise), senior center personnel, sports chairs, etc. at risk.   

We also must consider the reputation of our district should it become an issue with increased COVID cases.  It was reported in the Bristol Hearld Courier yesterday morning by Dr. Clay Runnels, Ballad Health Chief Physician Executive that "Breakthrough cases -- patients who are vaccinated -- tend to be older and have more co-morbidities."  Even if they are vaccinated, there is still the risk of contracting or spreading COVID.

We will process refunds for those that have already registered for the Olympics or return checks that haven't been deposited.  It could take a week or so to get the paperwork processed for your refund.  

Hopefully, fingers crossed, we will be able to have the district Olympics in 2022.

Let me know if you have any questions.
