Winter sports season on the table at IHSA meeting today

The Illinois High School Association Board of Directors will meet in a special session today at 1pm today to discuss the upcoming winter sports season.

On October 28 the IHSA agreed to go forward with the 2020-21 basketball season starting on November 26 as originally planned in August of this year. They told their member schools and the public it was up to the individual school to allow their basketball teams to participate during the pandemic as long as programs followed the guidelines developed by the IHSA Sport Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC).

One day later, Governor JB Pritzker put the breaks on the 2020-21 basketball season as well all other planned prep winter sports, including wrestling, dance and cheer competition. Anticipating a rise in the state's Coronavirus metrics, Governor Pritzker said those sports would have to be moved to the spring season.

"It is difficult to forecast if it will produce any official action, or (if it) will just be (a) discussion," Matt Troha, Assistant Executive Director at the IHSA wrote in an email to the media this morning. "Regardless, it is my hope to email a recap out by around 3pm."
