IHSA Reiterates Sports Not Likely Until 2021

Tuesday afternoon the IHSA sent the results of their special morning board meeting to athletic directors across the state. The organization “has no expectation of starting low risk sports prior to January,” according to the notice.
Once the state emerges from the Tier 3 restrictions they are “prepared to restart lower risk winter sports quickly.”
Lower risk sports include boys swimming & diving, boys & girls bowling, girls gymnastics, cheerleading and dance.
Boys and girls basketball is still classified as a high-risk sport by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
Additionally, the Board, “hopes to reestablish contact days in January for any winter sports that cannot begin, as well as spring and summer sports.”
The Board will meet again December 14th for its regularly scheduled monthly meeting.
