High school sports delayed again after Gov. Cooper’s Phase 2 extension

FROM WSJSTAFF REPORTS

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association will delay sport for the 2020-2021 year beyond the anticipated September 1 start date.

The NCHSAA provided the following statement from Commissioner Que Tucker to NCHSAA Member Schools this morning.

“At his press conference on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, Governor Roy Cooper and his health team extended Phase Two of the state’s reopening plan until at least September 11.  Unfortunately, this announcement means that the start of sports for the 2020-2021 school year will be delayed beyond September 1 for NCHSAA member schools.

The NCHSAA Staff and Board of Directors will review all available options, seek input from SMAC, DPI, a sports Ad Hoc Committee, and announce a calendar for playing sports during the upcoming school year.  It is hoped that we can make this announcement prior to August 17, 2020.

We want to play sports during this upcoming school year and are making plans to do so; however, the health and safety of all participants, including coaches and other essential staff, will be a priority as decisions and plans are made.”
