CIAC reaffirms decision to cancel fall football
Interscholastic Athletic Conference reaffirmed its previous decision to cancel
the fall football season Wednesday after a Board of Control meeting.
According to an
update on the CIAC website:
decision was made in alignment with the Connecticut Department of Health’s
recommendation that football is a high-risk sport and should not be played this
fall. The board did, however, agree it would consider allowing competition at a
later time for a sport that cannot hold its regularly scheduled season, such as
football, provided it does not negatively impact spring sports."
According to the
CIAC, “schools, with approval from their local [Department of Health], may opt
to play full contact football as a “club” sport, similar to girls ice hockey,
without adherence to CIAC COVID mitigating plans.”
