Lakers News · Athletic Shutdown Continues….


The Governor announced on Monday that the current shutdown of schools, which includes athletics would continue for at least another 12 days. This will once again delay the start of winter sports.

Here is the official position of the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA).

Dear MHSAA Community,

Today’s announcement from Governor Whitmer and MDHHS has extended the “pause” on high school in-person instruction and high school and middle school sports through Dec. 20.

The MHSAA had provided a detailed plan to both Governor Whitmer and MDHHS that would have completed fall tournaments with no spectators as safely as possible during the month of December along with allowing winter sport practices to resume.  While we are disappointed in today’s announcement, we will continue to look forward as we remain committed to play three sports seasons to their conclusion.  The MHSAA Representative Council will meet on Wednesday of this week to chart out another plan for finishing Fall and restarting Winter.

Updated information will reach you again following Wednesday’s Representative Council meeting.

Thank you.

Mark Uyl
MHSAA Executive Director
