What will happen in August to high school sports around here? Nobody has the answer. Not coaches, not administrators, not parents, not the PIAA.
Aug. 10 marks the first day on PIAA’s fall sports schedule. Real, organized practicing is permitted. Technically, it’s called heat acclimatization week. Physical contact is forbidden. The following week is when the fun starts.
By now, every school district in the state wishing to have an athletics department has implemented a school-board health and safety plan for the coronavirus age. Voluntary workouts at high schools throughout the state got under way in late June.
