MHSAA Suspends All Fall & Winter Sports Immediately


Please note the following update, sent out this evening by the MHSAA, suspending all school sport activity immediately through at least Dec 8th.  I know this is difficult news, as many of you were amping up for state competition or the beginning of your seasons, yet it aligns with our ongoing commitment to the health and safety of our student athletes, coaches, and fans.  

This is a time for support and cohesiveness, so let's continue to communicate and work together with one another.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me anytime,  There will be more news to follow in the coming weeks.  In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.


The Michigan High School Athletic Association has suspended its Fall tournaments for girls volleyball, girls swimming & diving and football, and all winter practices and competitions scheduled to begin over the next three weeks per the emergency order to pause activity announced Sunday by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to limit the spread of COVID-19.  

The volleyball and swimming & diving tournaments have one week remaining, with MHSAA Finals for both previously scheduled for Nov. 21. The 11 and 8-Player Football Playoffs also are nearing their conclusions, with the 8-player postseason two games from completion and 11-player down to its final three rounds.

Executive Director Mark Uyl: 

“We understand the need for action, and we will explore all options to complete our Fall tournaments when restrictions are lifted. We will assess everything over the next three weeks relative to Fall and Winter sports and come up with a plan that keeps us connected to our goal, for months, of having three seasons that are played to their conclusions.”
