Multiple Teams · Corona Virus Update for Athletics 3/16/20

Sunday 3/15/20 the Governor declared that all school activities including athletics are suspended through 3/31/20.  This includes all games, practices, conditioning, team meetings, workouts, camps and or open season skill development during this time.  This also includes the use of school facilities by student-athletes during this time.

The SCHSL met with State Superintendents on 3/16/20 and are holding off on making any final decisions on spring sports until 4/2/20 with a 4/6/20 return to play date.

Here is the statement released 3/16/20 by the SCHSL concerning the Spring 2020 Season CoronaVirus4

As you see the SCHSL is in a wait and see pattern vs shutting athletics down for the year.  Moving forward after 4/2/20 will depend on these factors:

  1. If schools can return 4/1/20
  2. If the school year is extended
  3. If it is safe to hold events with crowds

Mr. Monmonier and the region AD’s will be working to come up with a solution (schedule) once we get a better understanding of the when and if becomes clearer.

We will update as we get new information.
