Fall School Sports “Return to Play” Update

We have been trying to anticipate and quickly respond to your questions during this time, given the unprecedented challenges presented to our Boards related to COVID-19 school closures.  On July 10, 2020, NJSIAA released a memo titled, “Return to Play Update,” which contained an updated schedule for a delayed fall sports season.

Presently, all fall sports can begin to practice on September 14, 2020, with varying season start dates. Please be aware that the NJSIAA task force cautions they are considering many alternatives to the current proposed schedule. Please continue to look for updates, and remain fluid in your planning for this fall season.  The July 10, 2020 Memo is attached for your review.

Our e-mails about recent developments are not intended to substitute for our legal advice to our clients based on your specific needs or requests.  In addition, our guidance is subject to, and can be superseded by new laws, rules, regulations, or orders.  Moreover, some directives from the Federal and State authorities can appear, and can be, contradictory or in conflict, so please contact us for assistance.

As always, please contact us with any questions. We will continue to do our best to keep you updated in the coming days and weeks.
