The Minnesota State High School League on Tuesday agreed to move high school football and volleyball to spring seasons this year while other fall sports maintain modified schedules in response to COVID-19.
Boys and girls soccer, girls tennis, boys and girls cross country and girls swimming and diving were each approved to begin practice on Aug. 17 as scheduled, but there will be restrictions on length of season and competition dates.
Cross country meets will be limited to a maximum of three teams, while tennis and swimming events are only to be held with two teams. The board also limited these sports to one or two competitions per week.
The changes are designed to limit exposure of athletes, coaches and officials to the highly contagious respiratory disease. All sports will see limits on the number of competitions and how many teams can participate in any single event.
