Updated News Release from the WIAA:
The WIAA Executive Board took action on July 7th, 2020 to push back the start date for fall sports. The action was taken in an attempt to relieve pressure on member schools as they prepare for the opening of schools to in-person and/or online learning. The current dates to commence fall sports practices are September 5th for football and September 7th for all other sports. These starting dates (Saturday and Monday of Labor Day weekend) allow for contests to begin as early as September 18th.
On July 21st, the Executive Board will review other options for fall sports should further delays become necessary, with an announcement to be made on July 22nd. In the interim, a planning committee made up of Executive Board members, WIAA staff, and representatives from WIAA member schools will review possible options and make recommendations.
The Executive Board recognizes this recent action creates many questions, and it will work to provide answers on July 22nd. In the interim, we suggest schools avoid any rescheduling of games in Arbiter until a decision is made on how the delayed start impacts the fall season.
Gov. Jay Inslee announced the extension of the Safe Start proclamation until August 6.
This extension clarifies the interaction between Safe Start and Department of Health Secretary John Wiesman’s facial coverings order. It includes:Continue reading Inslee Extends Safe Start Proclamation, Issues Facial Coverings Guidance
