Area Athletic Directors Discuss Preparing for Events, COVID-19 Protocols
McBAIN – Friday officially marked one week since high school volleyball and boys soccer began competition in northern Michigan.
It has been a difficult adjustment, but one that student-athletes, parents and school staff are taking in stride.
Schools like McBain Northern Michigan Christian have been strict with COVID-19 protocols.
NMC athletic director Dave Skinner says communication has been key, especially with several opposing schools residing in regions unable to host competitions.
“We found that the more we communicate with our teams and with our parents and players, the more the better,” Skinner said. “We’ve been doing weekly updates with our families. And we’re meeting weekly and just taking everything week by week to try and see if we can get some games in. We’re just trying to make it happen as much as possible.”
The MHSAA and its Representative Council met Friday, but a decision has not made yet for boys soccer, volleyball and girls swimming and diving contests outside of Regions 6 and 8.
