On Friday, following the amendment of the most recent MDHHS epidemic order, high schools across the state will be allowed to re-open for face-to-face instruction. Following the announcement, the MHSAA published its plan for fall, winter and spring sports, including the resumption of tournaments for three fall sports (football, volleyball and LP girls swimming & diving).
With high schools now reopened, the MDHHS has announced a pilot testing program that will allow the three unfinished fall sport tournaments to resume under these new testing requirements. The updated emergency orders continue the pause on all organized sports except those three fall MHSAA sports identified in the MDHHS pilot testing program.
Unless new MDHHS orders are issued, all winter sports practices and competitions may start when the updated emergency orders expire on Jan. 15. Only virtual contact is allowed for all sports in all member school facilities, except those fall sport schools and individuals still in the MHSAA tournament following the pilot testing program, at this time.
We will keep you posted with more information as it becomes available.
