UPDATE: VHSL approves sports/activities plan for 2020-21

 

 

 

                       

VHSL Approves Return to Play Models for Sports Seasons: 

Championships +1

After meeting with coaches, athletic directors/principals and superintendent representatives from the respective regions, the VHSL staff has drafted the following plan for the FY 2021 Athletic and Academic Activities.

Regular Season

See Calendars Pages 3 - 4

  • Sideline Cheer has been moved from Season 2 to Season 1 to accommodate the beginning of the yearly calendar.  These teams serve as an auxiliary group for any sport team sponsored by a member school.
  • Each sport will play 60% of the normal contests allowed
  • For the 2020-21 school year no district may intentionally disadvantage a member school relative to scheduling.  A school may request of its district to fill their schedule with non-district opponents.  All District decisions relative to scheduling require the unanimous approval of the district.

Penalty for failure to comply:  Intentional violations of the scheduling rule will result in the offending district schools being ineligible for post-season participation.

  • Football will have 7 dates to play 6 games. 

1 – 02/22

2 – 02/27

3 – 03/05

4 – 03/12

5 – 03/19

6 – 03/26

7 – 04/02

  • Any game not played due to COVID-19 issues will be treated as a game “not played” versus a forfeit.
  • Regular season academic events do not have a calendar.  Schools/teams may participate in these activities throughout the regular school year per local school approval.
  • Dead Periods:         Season 1: 12/07 – 12/19

Season 2: 02/04 – 02/20 

Season 3: 04/12 – 04/24

 

 

Championships

Every sport will hold a state championship

  • VHSL Championship dates for Indoor Track and Swim & Dive are tentative due to venue availability
  • The calendar allows for one week of region tournaments and one week for a state tournament-semi-finals and finals.
  • Teams not participating in region tournaments will be allowed to schedule 1 additional game/contest that must be completed by the region deadline
  • Each region will advance 1 team to the state tournament in all sports.  Team state championships will be hosted by the team at the top of the bracket if the venue meets VHSL State Tournament Site Requirements, otherwise the game will be hosted in a facility in the geographic area that meets the requirements.
  • State Championships will be one day events when possible to eliminate team/school expense, overnight accommodations, meet COVID safety requirements for indoor facilities
  • Wrestling will be 8- person brackets and 1-day state tournaments.
  • Cross Country will advance to state competition based on region finish –2 teams and top 3 individuals
  • Indoor Track will qualify the top 3 region finishers in each event (Standards will not be used for the 2020-2021 state meet).
  • Outdoor Track will qualify the top 4 region finishers in each event (Standards will not be used for the 2020-2021 state meet).
  • Swimming & Diving will qualify the top 4 region finishers in each event (Standards will not be used for the 2020-2021 state meet).
  • Golf(boys) will qualify 1 team and 3 individuals per region
  • Golf(girls) will qualify through zone qualifiers.  Automatic qualifiers are girls who participate on their boy’s team and finish in the t0p 8 at the boys golf state championships.
  • Gymnastics will be one team per region and top 3 individuals per region for each event (Qualifying standards will not be used for the 2020-2021 state meet).
  • Class 1 – 4 Theatre state championships has been scheduled to coincide with the Class 5 – 6 Theatre state championships.

 

Region/District Responsibilities

  • Districts will create all district schedules and create protocols for handling situations for games affected by COVID-19.
  • Districts/Regions will be responsible for implementing all guidelines and recommendations approved by the VHSL Executive Committee that are designed to decrease exposure to COVID-19 and protect student-athletes, coaches, officials, game administration and fans.  (VHSL staff will work with athletic directors/principals, SMAC, and coach advisory committees to create these guidelines and recommendations.)
