NCHSAA update on return of athletics

The following is a North Carolina High School Athletic Association statement on the return of athletics:

As stated by the governor, we have been in communication with the Department of Health and Human Services concerning next steps for a return to athletic activities across the state.

Since we have not yet had an opportunity to discuss the guidelines mentioned by the governor and Dr. Cohen with a broader audience in our membership, we will spend the next several days discussing options, opportunities and best practices for resuming activity with our board of directors and sports medicine advisory committee, in addition to other stakeholder groups such as principals, athletic director, coaches groups, etc. These conversations will help us determine a more specific and detailed path forward.

To provide better information to the media relative to NCHSAA plans moving towards athletic activity resumption, we have scheduled a Zoom press briefing session on Tuesday, May 26 at 4 p.m. Access instructions will be emailed to the NCHSAA Media email listing later this weekend. Commissioner Que Tucker will be available at that time to answer questions and provide an update on NCHSAA plans based on the DHHS guidelines.
