MHSAA Delays Start of 2021 Springs Season by 1 Week
The MHSAA and its representative council announced Monday that it is delaying the start of the 2021 spring season by one week in order to accommodate the late ending of the winter sports season.
Spring sports practices can begin on March 22 and competitions may began on March 26.
The council based the decision in part on feedback from a survey of MHSAA member high schools. That survey saw 74% of member high schools favoring a delay in spring sports by at least one week.
The 2021 winter sports season was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and is concluding two weeks later than normal.
All spring sports tournament dates remain as originally scheduled, with state finals in baseball, softball and girls soccer concluding on June 19.
