Virginia school sports won’t kick off in the fall, but the VHSL has preserved its fall, winter and spring seasons in a condensed format—at least for the time being.
In a special meeting Monday, the Virginia High School League Executive Committee voted 34-1 to move forward with its Model 3 in its reopening of sports and activities for the 2020-2021 school year.
Model 3 delays all VHSL sports and activities until Dec. 14 and adopts the Condensed Interscholastic Plan that basically flips the fall and winter seasons. This model leaves all sports in the season where they are currently aligned.
In Model 3, the winter season (basketball, indoor track, gymnastics, swim/dive and wrestling) will be held from Dec. 14 to Feb. 20, with Dec. 28 the first contest date.
Under the condensed plan, the fall season (football, field hockey, cross country, volleyball, cheer and golf) will follow, running from Feb. 15 to May 1. The first contest date for the fall season would be March 1.
