The MHSAA Executive Committee voted on Tuesday to delay the Fall sports calendar for two weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Cross Country, Swimming, and Volleyball will be allowed to begin practicing starting August 10th with competition starting on August 24th. High school football will be allowed to begin practicing on August 17th and will be allowed to schedule scrimmages among schools beginning August 28th. MHSAA also announced that the football season will begin on September 4th and the games scheduled for the first two weeks of the season will not be made up. The football playoff and championship dates are unchanged at this moment.
“The board felt these changes will give all of us more time to try to get back into the routine of school,” MHSAA Executive Committee President Kalvin Robinson said. “There are going to be many challenges — ones we’re anticipating and those we don’t even know about yet — in returning to on-campus learning. It’s going to be different than what we’ve experienced in the past. Hopefully pushing back the start of the Fall sports seasons will help make that transition a little smoother for everyone involved.”
The Clinton Arrows are scheduled to take on the Brandon Bulldogs on September 4th for their opening season game!
