Greetings Cardinal Community!
As many of you may have already heard, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) has modified the High School sports calendars for the 2020-2021 School Year.
Unlike the traditional three seasons (Fall, Winter & Spring) the WIAA changes have created four seasons and have moved moderate and high-risk team sports, originally scheduled for the fall season, to the new WIAA Season 3.
What does this mean for our athletes? All of our traditionally played Fall season offered sports programs have been pushed back until after the new year into Seasons 2-4. With this said, we will be reaching out to students to gauge their interest in participating in the new Season 1 for this upcoming year. The following sports will be offered; Cross Country, Slowpitch Softball (girls) & Golf. Students check your school emails!!
**We will be sending out a survey to all students 8th-12th grade to see if they'd be interested in playing one of these 3 fall sports**
WIAA Sports Calendar for 2020-2021
*Dates are subject to change
WIAA Season 1 (Sept. 7 -- Nov. 8): Cross Country, Slowpitch Softball, Golf
WIAA Season 2 (Jan. 4 -- Mar. 7): Basketball, Wrestling

Also, the participation in any sport will depend on county progression through the phases laid out in Washington's Safe Start plan.
