IHSA CORONAVIRUS UPDATE  3/24/20

 

Administrators and spring sport coaches,

I know this time continues to be a challenge for all of us. I hope this note finds you well.

As the IHSA staff and board continue to monitor the updates from government offices as well as state and local health departments, we continue to support the possibility of our member schools completing both regular and post spring sports seasons. The date schools can return to regular session will determine the length of the spring sports season and the potential of an IHSA State Series. We will be working with our Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC) to determine the need for an acclimatization period in advance of competition. No timeline has been set at this time.

We are considering an extension of the spring sports season limitation to provide more participation opportunities for students. This may include movement of the post season timelines and the state series.

We will continue to provide updates as new information is available. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

If you need to contact our office, please do so via email as we are adhering to the "stay at home" directives.

Stay safe...

Sincerely,

Craig Anderson
Executive Director
