More Local information is coming.....but here is what we know now. Dear MHSAA Community, Earlier today, MDHHS released an updated emergency order that goes into effect on Monday, Feb. 8, which will allow full practices in winter contact sports to begin with competition to follow. Here is the updated listing of the winter contact sports tournament dates with new “first contest” dates. Remember that regular season contests can be scheduled in all winter sports up until the date of the MHSAA Finals in each sport as long as schools stay within the weekly limits (e.g. maximum of 3 basketball games in a week). Girls Basketball First contest: Feb. 8 Districts: March 22, 24, 26 Regionals: March 29, 31 Quarterfinals: April 5 Semifinals: April 7 Finals: April 9 Boys Basketball First contest: Feb. 8 Districts: March 23, 25, 27 Regionals: March 30, April 1 Quarterfinals: April 6 Semifinals: April 8 Finals: April 10 Competitive Cheer First contest: Feb. 12 Districts: March 17-20 Regionals: March 23-24 Finals: March 26-27 Ice Hockey First contest: Feb. 8 Regionals: March 15-20 Quarterfinals: March 23-24 Semifinals: March 25-26 Finals: March 27 Wrestling First contest: Feb. 12 Districts: Team- Mar. 17-18; Individual- Mar. 20 Regionals: Team- Mar. 24; Individual- Mar. 27 Team Finals: March 30 Individual Finals: April 2-3 Note that the first allowed contest date for basketball and ice hockey is next Monday, Feb. 8. While we understand that many basketball schools are still finalizing teams after a few days of contact practice have been completed, the MHSAA wanted to give schools as much scheduling flexibility and local control as possible in terms of setting ice time and finalizing gym schedules for practices and games next week. As a scheduling reminder, the season limits of competition remain unchanged for all winter sports, and the weekly limits of competition also remain unchanged in all sports except for these two modifications for 20-21 in ice hockey and wrestling. In ice hockey, teams may play two games on one non-school day a maximum of two times during the season. When the two games/one day option is used, ice hockey teams could play 4 games (on three dates) in those two weeks. For high school wrestling, teams and individuals are allowed two days of competition in a week. Remember that all regular season wrestling competition is limited to 4 teams at a site (3 matches per student per day of competition). For middle school wrestling, one day of competition in a week is allowed. Again, all regular season wrestling competition is limited to 4 teams at a site (3 matches per student per day of competition). Schools and/or leagues may elect to play fewer games or use fewer days of competition. Mask Requirements and Testing Options: Basketball & Ice Hockey: Schools, teams and individuals must wear a mask at all times, including during active participation (while “in the game”) during all practices and competition. For schools, teams and individuals that are “masked” at all times during practices and games, there is no COVID rapid testing requirement for practice and play. We are waiting on further guidance and details from MDHHS relative to testing requirements should teams/individuals in these two sports wish to use the testing option. Wrestling: To be eligible to compete, all wrestlers must complete a negative rapid antigen test on the day of all meets with no exceptions. All individuals would also be subject to contract tracing and close contact requirements when positive cases or tests exist. Those tested wrestlers would be able to compete without wearing a mask during the match but masks would be required of all individuals at all other times during meets and practices. This is required for wrestling as published in the MDHHS FAQ document. Competitive Cheer: Masks are required for all participants when not in active participation on the mat. While in active participation on the mat, athletes may wear face masks but are not required to do so given this sport is always conducted with the same teammates and opponents are never in physical contact or within physical proximity of each other. Face masks are required during practices, however, the mask may be removed while stunting and tumbling. Testing Information: MDHHS will make rapid tests available at no charge to all wrestling schools along with other schools and sports that wish to test participants. Schools will need to order tests from the MDHHS and those will be shipped to the local ISD facility for pick-up. All participants would also be subject to all contract tracing and close contact requirements when positive cases or tests exist. Many more details on testing information (ordering, shipping, conducting, reporting, requirements, etc) will be available from the MDHHS very soon. These same requirements would be in place for those junior high/middle schools that wish to play these four winter contact sports.

Sports Update 1/22/21 Dear MHSAA Community, Governor Whitmer’s press conference this morning included brand new information for the MHSAA and member schools relative to winter contact sports. We did not anticipate this delay in winter contact practices and competition, and today’s announcement has created many new questions. That being said, we are currently working to obtain further information on the MDHHS order. There are no changes to current winter sports practices in basketball, competitive cheer, ice hockey and wrestling as those activities can continue with no physical contact, using social distancing and face masks. The same is true for fall and spring sport 4-player workouts being able to continue now. The Representative Council and our staff will be using the next few days to gather all information and discuss current options. Know that the MHSAA remains FULLY committed to winter and spring sport seasons as this latest set of hurdles will require continued creativity in finding the way for both remaining seasons to be played. Further information with updated details will reach you early next week. Thank you. Mark Uyl MHSAA Executive Director

New Athletic Cage For Spring Sports Baraga Athletics has a new multipurpose cage to help our softball, track and golf teams prepare for our competitions. Now our athletes will be able to bat, pitch, hit golf balls and throw shot and disk indoors. Thanks to Ben Johnson and our golf coach Tim Marzcak for putting this together for us. Tim was willing to take the inaugural first hit into our net and it works like a charm. As usual ... thanks to everyone who donates, or participates in one of our fundraisers. Every dime goes to purchasing something new to train our athletes or for our gym! If anyone is looking to donate $ for tax purposes, please have them contact Amy Kraft-Lake or the school. Every penny is appreciated to help make Baraga Athletics better for our students.
