IMPORTANT FALL SPORTS MEETING CHANGE – AUGUST 10
In response to COVID-19 concerns the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) announced on Tuesday, August 4 that both the football and volleyball seasons will be moved to next Spring. The cross country and soccer seasons will remain in place for this fall and will begin as scheduled on August 17. It is anticipated that there will be practice-only opportunities for football and volleyball this fall; though it is unclear how many practices sessions will be allowed. A decision has also not been made yet about middle school (grade 6-8) football and volleyball since these programs are not regulated by the MSHSL.
Students who were planning to participate in football or volleyball this fall may choose to join either cross country or soccer and will still be eligible for the football and volleyball seasons next Spring. Spectrum also participates in coops for girls’ tennis at Big Lake High School and girls swimming and diving at Elk River that are also scheduled to begin on August 17. Information about these programs is available from the host school.
The details about the fall and spring seasons are still being worked on by the MSHSL. We will continue to provide updates when they become available.
