Lightning News · Winter Athletics Update

With high schools now reopened, the MDHHS has announced a pilot testing program that will allow the three unfinished fall sport tournaments to resume under these new testing requirements.  The updated emergency orders continue the pause on all organized sports except those three fall MHSAA sports identified in the MDHHS pilot testing program. 

Unless new MDHHS orders are issued, all winter sports practices and competitions for high schools and middle schools may start when the updated emergency orders expire on Jan. 15.  Only virtual contact is allowed for all sports in all member school facilities, except those fall sport schools and individuals still in the MHSAA tournament following the pilot testing program, at this time.
