The MHSAA has suspended fall sports tournaments, which includes girls volleyball, swimming and diving, and football.
“We understand the need for action, and we will explore all options to complete our Fall tournaments when restrictions are lifted,” said Executive Director Mark Uyl in a statement. “We will assess everything over the next three weeks relative to Fall and Winter sports and come up with a plan that keeps us connected to our goal, for months, of having three seasons that are played to their conclusions.”
They have also suspended any practices or games for winter sports.
The only allowed coach-player contact and activities for all sports (fall, winter and spring) is virtual communication and meetings through at least Dec. 8 or until the new orders are amended.
The MHSAA said in another statement that they are working to make sure the fall tournaments get completed and that they will revise the winter sports schedule.
