EAST LANSING – There has been a slight adjustment made to the Spring 2021 high school sports schedule.
The Michigan High School Athletic Association's Representative Council approved delaying the start of practices in the Spring sports schedules. Under the new calendar, practices for Spring sports will now begin March 22 and competitions on March 26.
This is being done to accommodate a later end to Winter sports this season. The calendar change would also alleviate pressures on indoor facility usage and athletes changing seasons with Winter sports concluding up to two weeks later this school year after a delayed start due to COVID-19.
The Representative Council based its decision in part on feedback from a survey of MHSAA member high schools, which saw 74 percent favoring a delay in Spring sports activity of at least one week. All Spring sports tournament dates remain as originally scheduled, with MHSAA Finals in baseball, softball and girls soccer concluding the 2020-2021 postseason on June 19.
