CORONAVIRUS CANCELLATIONS: Spring High School Sports Delayed, Will Start No Earlier Than March 30

Below is an announcement from the MIAA:

The MIAA Board of Directors held a conference call on March 12, 2020 to discuss the status of the MIAA spring sport season scheduled to commence on Monday, March 16, 2020. The past couple of weeks has certainly provided our member schools with challenges related to the outbreak of COVID-19. The beginning of spring sports is just one of the many decisions that needs to be addressed.

After much discussion, the Board of Directors’ decision is to delay the start of the 2020 spring season to March 30, 2020. Respecting the fluidity of this situation, this decision will be revisited prior to March 30.

The following guidelines must be followed during this delayed start time:

  • Out of season coaching is not allowed during this period
  • The start date for first competition will be consistent with MIAA Handbook Rule 35.4.1,
  • The first team competition may not occur before the 11th calendar day after and including the first day of practice.
  • This decision is based on available information from numerous health agencies and is made in the best interest of our student-athletes, schools and communities.
