From District Chair Bill Marshall (9/24/2020)

Yesterday the PIAA BOD approved the attached plan for Fall Sports State Championships. This year's tourney will be a tournament of champions with only D6 champions qualifying for team state playoffs. The D6 Committee will develop a schedule for our playoffs in soccer, volleyball and football at our meeting next Thursday. Just a reminder the PIAA BOD previously approved that schools could still compete after the playoffs start if they did not qualify. You may NEVER compete in more regular seasons contests then the by-laws allow.

As stated by PIAA Attorney Alan Boynton is today's Altoona Mirror, "If the 3rd Circuit Court grants the stay, schools would be back to where the Governor had them before (25 indoor and 250 outdoor maximums.)" Be sure you have plans in place if that order comes down at 4 PM on Friday.

I would also like to thank all of the D6 schools that included information in their public announcement of their new spectators policies the importance of adhering to all the mandates in place and supporting the belief that none of us want sports to be closing D6 schools. I've spoken to many of you and your Superintendents and all of us want to see our stadiums and gymnasiums packed with fans but not at the expense of education and the safety of all involved.
