In a statement released following a January 13th board meeting, the IHSA announced that the winter athletic season will remain on pause through at least the rest of the month. IHSA sports have been on pause since late November.

Sports Still on Pause

“We realize there is a desire for finality on a sports schedule for 2020-21, however, we did not believe it would be prudent to lock ourselves into a schedule at a time when IHSA schools are unable to conduct any sports,” said IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson in the statement. “Per Governor Pritzker, we have hope that low-risk sports may be permitted in certain regions of the state as early as this Friday (January 15). With that in mind, February seems like a realistic timeline to have sports resume statewide.”

The low risk winter sports waiting to begin include boys and girls bowling, girls badminton, cheerleading, dance, girls gymnastics, and boys swimming and diving.
