    Winter 2021 Athletic Attendance Policy

    Please see the document below for the Winter 2021 Athletic Attendance Policy each winter sport. 

    MSHSL Winter Sports to Begin In-person Practice 1/4/21

    Earlier today, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz issued Executive Order 20-103 which extended and modified Executive Order 20-99. Within this order, the governor established Monday, Jan. 4, 2021, as the date for the return of in-person high school and youth sports. Sports programs will initially be limited to practice only with the start date for competition to be determined later.

    At its Dec. 4, 2020, meeting, the Minnesota State High School League’s Board of Directors approved a flexible model to begin winter sports when permitted by the State of Minnesota. In alignment with the Executive Order, and in using the approved model created by the Return to Participation Task Force, Minnesota State High School League winter seasons will begin as follows:

    • Gymnastics, Girls and Boys Basketball, Girls and Boys Hockey, Wrestling, Boys Swimming and Diving, Girls and Boys Nordic Skiing and Girls and Boys Alpine Skiing may begin in-person practice on Monday, Jan. 4.
    • The Dance season may resume in-person practice on Jan. 4.
    • Adapted Floor Hockey may begin its training season on Jan. 4.

    Adapted Floor Hockey

    As of 12/8, the MSHSL has made the decision for Adapted Floor Hockey to proceed with a training season with practices only.  There will be no competitions held this year.

    You will need to register (at no charge) for the Adapted Floor Hockey PRACTICE session on SmartSchoolK12. If you had previously registered and paid the activity fee, your registration will be cancelled by the activities office and you will be refunded. Please reach out to the Steph Kaczmarek at skaczmar@sowashco.org with any questions or concerns. 

    MSHSL Update for Winter Activities

    The Minnesota State High School League has declared that as a result of the restriction and limitations of Executive Order 20-99:

    • The start of the season for Adapted Floor Hockey, Alpine Skiing, Girls and Boys Basketball, Girls Gymnastics, Girls and Boys Hockey, Nordic Ski Racing, Boys Swim and Dive, and Wrestling will be delayed. Due to restrictions included in Executive Order 20-99, the earliest that these seasons could begin is December 19, 2020.
    • Dance, which began on Monday, November 9, remains in season. All in-person practice and competition aspects of dance are prohibited throughout Executive Order 20-99
