PIAA Recommends Against Captains' Practices

With the season on hold for the time being the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) is recommending that no captain's practices or informal workouts take place in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the PIAA said in a press release sent out yesterday.

Schools are already closed for at least ten business days, effective on March 16, which means there are no official practices or competitions for PIAA teams. The PIAA is also stated that any "captains' practices" or informal workouts offsite" should not be permitted during this time.

Here's more from the PIAA's release.

The intent of this is to limit people gathering together to minimize the potential spread of the coronavirus. We have been informed that some schools' sport teams may be organizing captains' practices or informal workouts offsite. It's our position this is contrary to the intent of the Governor's order and these activities are not permitted.

The PIAA also stated that it will work with various government agencies and will give further updates on the spring sports season with information that "may change on a day to day basis."
