Jimmies News · A Statement about Spring Sports from the IHSAA Commissioner


The Indiana High School Athletic Association staunchly supports our Governor, our State Commissioner
of Health and our State Superintendent of Public Instruction in their herculean efforts during the COVID-
19 pandemic. We are extremely fortunate in Indiana to have these exemplary leaders providing
guidance and care to all Hoosiers.
With the announcement today of the closure of K-12 schools throughout Indiana for the remainder of
the school year, the IHSAA announces the cancellation of all spring sports tournament series events for
the 2019-20 school year. It is imperative that our students, coaches, officials, administrators and
parents be encouraged in every manner to adhere to the guidance provided by our leadership. The
Association understands the extreme seriousness of this pandemic and joins in support of current
measures being implemented as well as future considerations.

In unwavering support yet with extreme
sadness, we must cancel our spring sports programming. We join all Hoosiers in anticipation of a
triumphant homecoming back to our schools in the fall of 2020 complete with a full complement of
IHSAA sports.
