CIAC Approves Winter Sports Plan, Including Postseason Experience As Was Held In Fall
The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) Board of Control, on January 14, approved a winter sports plan such that practices may begin as early as January 19. Games may start no sooner than February 8, a week later than initially proposed.
A postseason experience in all sports will be allowed from March 15-28. Those experiences will be championships at the league level. In order to maximize the number of game opportunities for all schools, no CIAC state championship tournaments will be held in the winter sports season. This is what occurred in the fall, with teams playing league/conference tournaments.
Indoor track teams will be limited to practice with indoor/outdoor meets considered no earlier than March.
For more details about the winter sports plan, including which sports classified as "high risk" sports will not be held as well as numbers of games and new regulations associated with coronavirus protocol, check the January 15 print edition of The Bee.
