(5-8-20) The Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) has announced the resumption of high school sports in Indiana can tentatively begin July 1.
All school-sponsored athletic activities were put on hold in March and later canceled because of school closures due to COVID 19. Those policies will remain in place through June.
The decision comes after Jennifer McCormick, Indiana’s superintendent of public instruction, clarified that June 30 will be the end of the traditionally defined school year.
The resumption of sports remains contingent on the state’s ability to gradually reopen for business under the plan outlined last week by Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb.
If the the guidelines are met, athletes would be able to work out with teammates and coaches through at least Aug. 1.
Earlier the IHSAA helped out student-athletes by allowing them to use their physicals from the past school year. The thinking was due to the pandemic Doctor’s schedules would be congested and hard to schedule.
