In an executive board meeting this morning at the AIA office, the AIA elected to overturn it’s previous ruling and reinstate winter athletics.
Executive Board members voted 5-4 to reinstate the winter sports season with the modifications published on Nov. 30, 2020, along with the additional modifications:
- All students, coaches and officials will be required to wear a cloth mask or gaiter for the entirety of a game/contest.
- Each school will complete the AIA COVID-19 Athlete/Coach Monitoring Form the day of all games/contests and provide a copy to the opposing school prior to the contest.
- Up to two parents or legal guardians may attend their student-athlete’s home games as allowed by the school and county guidelines.
- Any school that violates any of the mandatory modifications, including the COVID-19 Return to Play Form, will lose access to AIA officiating.
More information will be out from the AIA and your Varsity Coaches in the next week.
