Officials answered questions about the plan to continue workouts for athletes.

“It is the premise and promise of this league, from the membership, SCHSL staff, Executive Board and Appellate Panel, to support and encourage athletic participation among ALL of South Carolina’s students,” state Commissioner Jerome Singleton. “We have been overcome with grief and outright disappointment since mid-March when the nation was at a standstill with the onset of Covid-19. What has followed is months of uncertainty, confusion, and despair. That ends now! We are forging ahead with the information we have, placing as many health and safety precautions at the frontline and allowing fall sports to continue with adjustments.”

Noteworthy decisions voted on by the Executive Committee include:

  • Approved to push back start of practice from July 31 to August 17
  • 7 game football season starting September 11
  • Region games (Girls Tennis, Volleyball, Football) played first and shortened playoff schedule
