April 19th - Earliest WIAA contact day for Spring Sports
We do not know the specifics on type of contact but have an updated timeline for decisions on when we will return to in-person athletics and training. We will continue to stay in contact through our in-season virtual offerings and our virtual speed and strength available to all until that time. Please sign up for all interested programs via our online forms and other resources at https://athletics.madison.k12.wi.us/ . There is a presentation on MMSD’s YouTube channel with details about what to expect from your sports as well as offseason opportunities for engagement. There is also information about what is available to you to support your mental health, physical well being, and social justice and leadership development.
We know students are eager for in-person athletics to start up again, and we share the sense of urgency around resuming co-curriculars, recognizing the critical role sports play in so many students' lives. Like in-person instruction, we plan to use a phased approach to restarting in-person athletics, in line with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Public Health Madison Dane County.
Linked you can find a release and phasing-in timeline that is as complete as possible to this point, so that students, families, and schools can start planning for athletics this school year. As we do so, we know that conditions around community transmission of COVID-19 can always change, as can health guidance and, of course, weather and field conditions. So we know we'll need to be flexible so that we can adapt to these unpredictable factors.
