Virginia high school sports postponed until at least December

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.

From WTKR.com:

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)
Football, volleyball, golf, competition cheer, sideline cheer, cross country & field hockey

Season 3 (Spring Sports): April 12 – June 26 (First Contest Date: April 26, 2021)
Baseball, lacrosse, outdoor track, soccer, softball & tennis

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.

    Sports should wait until 2021 just to clear up the testing and lab capacity for the general population. It makes no sense to divert these valuable resources to athletes and coaches as if they’re part of an exclusive, special, protected class of citizens.

      I’m curious about the perceived scarcity of testing and lab capacity. All I keep hearing is they want more and more people to go get tested.

    Most of the good players in VA are transferring out of state and I can’t blame them. I’ve heard several in western VA are coming to school in Pike Co.
