DEL VAL league 2020 Fall Sports Statement –
The Del-Val League has decided to end the 2020 Fall Sports season due to Covid-19 concerns. While the schools worked diligently to consider numerous pathways to find other alternatives to save the 2020 fall season, no satisfactory plan materialized.
Our concerns for overall safety aligns the schools in the Del Val League with other Pennsylvania universities and colleges who have decided to make similar Covid-19 precautionary cancellation procedures. The majority of districts in the Del Val League have made a commitment to begin virtual schooling for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Therefore, the most consistent and safest decision for all students, coaches and personnel is to follow a no contest path for athletics for the fall 2020 season, as well.
We are committed to a safe return to competition in 2020 and will revisit athletic formulas at the end of September. For now, our plan is to stop any team competitions within our league and non- league games.
Our hope is that this decision will help assist in the progress of creating a positive change in decreasing the numbers of Covid-19 cases in our area.
