Other states following Wisconsin's lead for high school sports

More and more states are following Wisconsin's lead when it comes to balancing the coronavirus with getting fall sports seasons underway.


According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, Wisconsin is one of 24 states that will operate under a modified schedule this fall for its sports teams. It includes delaying the start of the season, playing conference-only schedules, and pushing some sports off into the spring if necessary. Six states and Washington D.C. have already called off their fall football season, with some groups like the Illinois High School Association slating it for the spring. 


In Wisconsin, low-contact sports like cross country and tennis are expected to start August 17th while high-contact sports like soccer, volleyball, and football are slated to start in September under current guidance from the WIAA.
