The IHSAA is preparing to begin the 2020 fall sports seasons as currently scheduled. 

First practices are set to begin for cross country, football and Class 4A golf on Aug. 10. 

A statement released by the IHSAA last week said, “The health and safety of student-athletes and their communities has been our priority as we work to provide opportunities during this pandemic, and will remain so as we move forward into the 2020-21 school year. We will continue to work with our partners at NFHS, IATS, and within the Iowa state government to develop protocols and sport-specific guidance, and will adjust as necessary.”

In Iowa’s Unified Activities programs – IHSAA, IGHSAU, IHSMA, and IHSSA – each member school and participant may determine which activities they sponsor or join every school year. IHSAA sport guidance will be released to member schools the week of July 27.
