IHSA Pauses Sports and Activities Under New State Mitigations

The Illinois High School Association Board of Directors met for a special virtual meeting on Thursday, where the board provided an update on winter sports.

To maintain compliance with the most recent mitigations issued by Governor Pritzker that take effect on Friday, the board issued guidance to pause all IHSA winter sports and activities.

“All IHSA sports and activities will cease by November 20 for what we hope is a short-term pause,” said IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson. “Given the rising COVID-19 cases in our state and region, we support the Governor’s mitigations and believe it is imperative for everyone in the state to do their part in following them so that we can return to high school sports participation as soon as possible.”

The board will revisit the status of winter sports at their update discussion on December 2, and again at their regularly scheduled meeting on December 14 if necessary.
