Contact play is expected to resume on Feb. 21st.  This is tentative and could change.   Athletic Directors have adjusted game schedules to allow sufficient practice time to prepare for “game” play!  Revised schedules (1/28/21) are posted on the left/red athletics tab.  

MHSAA Recent Guidelines:

“The four winter contact sports as defined by MDHHS include basketball, competitive cheer, ice hockey and wrestling. These four sports may begin indoor practices with no physical contact on Jan. 16.
