‘If spring sports are unable to continue, the FHSAA is working diligently to create a plan regarding additional eligibility for students who have not been able to participate in spring sports.’
GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA – Florida High School Athletic Association officials released an update Tuesday stating that the 2020 high school spring sports season could possibly be extended through June 30.
Following is the Florida High School Athletic Association statement in its entirety:
Given the directive of President Trump to maintain following CDC guidelines through April 30, 2020, combined with Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran’s mandate for schools in Florida to remain closed through May 3, 2020, the FHSAA will continue to follow suit with all scheduled FHSAA meetings, conferences, and athletic events postponed.
Pending schools are back in session and afforded the opportunity to resume activities after May 3, by Federal, state and local authorities, the FHSAA will follow the advice and guidance available to us at that time regarding the continuance of all FHSAA spring sports.
In light of the current situation, the FHSAA staff is actively working on creative solutions for the continuance of spring sports, which could extend through June 30.
The FHSAA does understand the hardships caused by COVID-19 and the inability to play spring sports.
If spring sports are unable to continue, the FHSAA is working diligently to create a plan regarding additional eligibility for students who have not been able to participate in spring sports.
The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, officials, fans and local communities are their top priority.
The FHSAA appreciates all member schools’ cooperation in following Federal, state and local recommendations and mandates during this time.
