Per Governor’s Executive Order:
MSHSL Sports/Activities on “4 Week Pause”
Governor Walz issued Executive Order 20-99 yesterday. In that order he paused all MSHSL activities.
Organized Youth Sports. Organized Youth Sports organizations and programs must stop all in-person activities—including practices, group workouts, games, and tournaments. i. “Organized Youth Sports” means any sports activity, where participants are children or adolescents, organized by an entity, association, club, or organization providing for registration of participants and oversight on a regular basis for a defined period of time. Sports activities within this definition include all sports offered by schools (public and nonpublic), the Minnesota State High School League, or similar organizations, as well as dance, cheerleading, and other sports traditionally offered by supplemental associations or organizations.
We will plan on resuming these activities on December 19. If you have any questions, please contact Rich Dippel or Keven Seim.
