COVID-19: Spring sports now suspended through at least April 18

Posted

The Colorado High School Activities Association has extended the suspension of spring sports and activities through April 18. On March 12, CHSAA ordered games, practices and events to be suspended through April 6 due to concerns over COVID-19.

“In light of Governor Jared Polis’ announcement Monday (March 16) afternoon where new restrictions were mandated to slow the advance of the COVID-19 virus narrowing the minimum standards for public gatherings, we are announcing that the Association will follow the guidelines that went into effect at 8:00 a.m. today and will remain in effect for 30 days,” CHSAA Commissioner Rhonda Blanford-Green said in a March 17 news release. “This media and school advisory is to keep the membership apprised of the latest decisions from the CHSAA office.”

In addition, CHSAA encouraged schools to set stricter standards on student gatherings outside of high school; all CHSAA-sanctioned music events have been canceled; and the state speech tournament and Student Leadership Advisor U were postponed until later in the spring, without a specific date.

CHSAA also said it will recognize individual participants from the state basketball championships with "a memento in the coming weeks to recognize their leadership and resolve during that week." Following the completion of several girls games on March 12, CHSAA ordered the cancellation of the remainder of the girls and boys state basketball tournaments, meaning no champions were crowned this season.
