Salida School District Superintendant David Blackburn has said more than once that one of the most frequent questions he has gotten over the past few months is “will there be sports this fall?” Now there is an answer — at least for now.
Salida High School will follow the regulations the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) has set for the state. A pause is scheduled for school fall activities as the state continues to deal with the coronavirus pandemic known as COVID-19.
The calendar is a four season calendar which is split into seasons A, B, C and D. Activities will take a break in late fall from October 18 to January 3 due to data predicted by that state which indicates possible COVID-19 spikes.
It is expected that competitions across most sports and activities will be reduced by a couple of weeks. Sports will be modified for the health and safety of participants. Click here for a full list of modifications.
The breakdown of each season is as follows:
Season A: Cross Country, Boys Golf, Boys Tennis and Softball
Season B: Basketball, Ice Hockey, Skiing, Competitive Spirit, Girls Swimming and Wrestling
Season C: Field Hockey, Football, Gymnastics, Boys Soccer, Unified Bowling, Girls Volleyball
Season D: Baseball, Girls Golf, Boys Lacrosse, Girls Soccer, Boys Swimming, Girls Tennis, Track and Field and Boys Volleyball
Activities will include student leadership, music, festival speech and tournament speech.
