Delayed Start to Winter Sports

Delayed Start to Winter Sports
Posted on 11/24/2020

On November 18, 2020, the WIAA announced its decision to amend the current school athletic schedule for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, due to surging COVID-19 cases throughout the state. As a result, the start of season 2 (traditional winter sports) has been delayed until February 1st. While this information is subject to change, a summary of the updates is as follows:

  • Each WIAA season will be shortened to 7 weeks in length
  • Season 2 (traditional winter sports) is scheduled to begin practices Monday, February 1st and conclude on March 10th
  • Season 3 (traditional fall sports) will begin practices on Monday, March 15 and end on May 1st
  • Season 4 (traditional spring sports) will begin practicing on Monday, April 26th and end on June 12th

Please keep in mind that if less than 50% of schools in a WIAA region (by classification) are able to compete in sports due to increased COVID-19 cases, the WIAA Executive Board will make adjustments to the scheduled seasons in order to allow for more participation. Athletes and their families should continue to watch the WIAA website at for the latest information and updates. Please contact Finley Athletics Director, Ryan Helms, at 582-2158 for more information.
