Consistent with Executive Order 20-41 issued by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz on April 23, 2020, to extend the Distance Learning Period through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year the Minnesota State High School League Board of Directors has declared that effective immediately:
• Minnesota State High School League spring athletics and fine arts have been cancelled for the remainder of their seasons. This includes all participation in MSHSL events including, but not limited to, practices, tryouts, scrimmages, contests and competitions as well as postseason tournaments.
• With this cancellation, all athletics are out of season. The provisions of Bylaw 208—NonSchool Competition and Training are in effect.
At its meeting on Friday, April 24, 2020, the MSHSL Board of Directors will review related rules, policies and bylaws that impact participation based on this cancellation. Additional information and guidance for schools will be provided.
The Minnesota State High School League strongly encourages all students, coaches, advisors, officials and directors to adhere to all aspects of the Stay-At-Home order and participate fully in all recommended safety practices including social distancing, hand washing, covering their coughs and sneezes, and limiting unnecessary contact with others.
