    2-Minute Drill: Return-To-Activity Guidelines

    The COVID-19 pandemic presents state high school associations with a myriad of challenges. 

    The WIAA in partnership with the NFHS and WIAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committees (SMACs) offers a Guidance Document which is available to view on the WIAA Website with guidance on how WIAA member schools can consider approaching the many components of “opening up” high school athletics and activities across the state of Washington.

    The NFHS and WIAA SMACs believe it is essential to the physical and mental well-being of high school students across the nation to return to physical activity and athletic competition. It is not likely that ALL students will be able to return to – and sustain – athletic activity at the same time in all schools and regions in Washington. There will also likely be variation in what sports and activities are allowed to be played and held. While we would typically have reservations regarding such inequities, the NFHS SMAC endorses the idea of returning students to school-based athletics and activities in any and all situations where it can be done safely and in alignment with reopening policies set forth by the local school district and OSPI framework. More information is available on the WIAA Website.
