CIAC August 23, 2020 Update on Fall Sports

CIAC August 23, 2020 Update on Fall Sports

CHESHIRE, Conn – In alignment with positive discussions with the Connecticut Department of Public Health, the CIAC Board of Control voted at its Sunday meeting to restart conditioning for all fall sports.

On Monday, August 24, schools may return to the conditioning activities that were being conducted since July 6.  On Saturday, August 29, schools may begin non-contact sport specific skill work. Both conditioning and skill work are to take part in small cohorts in adherence with guidance from the National Federation of State High School Associations and the DPH. Conducting conditioning and sport specific skill work as non-contact and in small cohorts is classified as low risk regardless of the sport.

The Board of Control has determined that any fall sport that is cancelled will not be played at a later time during the 2020-2021 school year.

The CIAC will work this week to finalize the timeline of full team activities and contest play. As it has done through this entire process, the board will continue to monitor the situation and the plan will remain fluid.
