Update on Start of CRLS Fall Athletics Season

Update on Start of CRLS Fall Athletics Season
Posted on 07/22/2020
Hello Falcon Nation, 

I want to share an important outcome from today's MIAA Board of Directors Meeting.

The start of the Fall Season has been moved to September 14, 2020. At this point it is the only update on athletics.

The rationale behind this vote which was recommended by the MIAA Covid-19 Task Force has to do with the following:

1) The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) has not yet released their recommendations for high school sports- this is due later this month.  At this time it is more prudent to wait on this information for school districts, individual schools, coaches and students.

2) There was strong consensus that districts should settle their plans for the academic school year plan, prior to coming up with a plan for athletics.

3) This time will allow for a better planned approach in preparation for whatever changes may occur with the athletics calendar.

As soon as DESE and EEA bring forward recommendations, the MIAA Board of Directors will meet within 3 days to discuss Fall Sports and Athletics for the year.

This is the only update I have for you at this time. I continue to urge you to complete your online registrations for the Fall Season in preparation, be sure to hand in your paperwork via email.

As soon as concrete plans for athletics is reached, there will be virtual meeting to review any and all pertinent information that families, student athletes and coaches need to know.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
