MSHSL Extends Spring Activity Suspension, No Decision On Cancellation

Following the delivery of Governor Tim Walz’s executive stay-at-home order this afternoon, the Minnesota State High School League announced an extension to the suspension of spring activities, though the spring season has not been cancelled.

Minnesota’s school closure declaration is in effect until May 4, meaning that participation in spring activities–including competitions, practices, and mandated training–remains suspended for that duration as well. The MSHSL has said it will determine a return to participation and those details pending a reopening of the schools by the Governor.

No decision has been made regarding the cancellation of the spring sports season in its entirety.

Several competitive activity events remain suspended indefinitely as well. They include Speech Section and State Tournaments, Music Contests, the Visual Arts Competitions and State Festival, the State Robotics Tournament, and the Clay Target State Tournament.

The announcement follows stipulations that were provided last week regarding restrictions on spring activities. Full details were provided by the Minnesota State High School League on their Facebook page this afternoon:
