WIAA: spring sports could be held if schools return by May 4

WIAA: spring sports could be held if schools return by May 4

Although the prospect of a spring sports season looks bleak, the WIAA is still working on contingency plans to hold “some type of culminating event” if schools in Washington return this year.

Last week, Gov. Jay Inslee extended the state’s “stay-at-home” executive orders another month through May 4, the week most teams in the West Sound typically wrap up their regular seasons. That could leave open a small window for some type of local competition or tournament before the postseason.

But that is dependent upon schools reopening by that day.

“As we navigate these unchartered waters, we are continually planning to provide some opportunity for kids this spring to compete,” Hoffman said.

In a perfect world, Hoffman said, the postseason would look no different than any other year as long as school facilities are able to open and officials are available.

“There are more questions than answers,” Hoffman said.
