Tomorrow, the KHSAA will meet to discuss the future of fall sports in Kentucky. One of our neighbors to the east, Virginia, just made the call to push all high school sports to at least mid-December. This morning, the Executive Committee of the Virginia High School League voted 34-0 on the new calendar (with one member abstaining), which calls for fall sports like football to take place in the spring and each season to be shortened.
Season 1 (Winter Sports): December 14 – February 20 (First Contest Date: December 28, 2020)
Basketball, gymnastics, indoor track, swim and dive & wrestling
Season 2 (Fall Sports): February 15 – May 1 (First Contest Date: March 1, 2021)

A few weeks ago, the KHSAA Board of Control voted to extend limitations on practices for fall sports through August 2. High school football games are scheduled to begin August 21. Tomorrow’s KHSAA meeting begins at 10 a.m. and will be streamed on YouTube. We’ll have complete coverage on KSR.
