Dover, DE (December 3, 2020) - With the recent message from Governor Carney today, winter sports starting December 14 may continue practicing provided social distancing and mask guidelines are followed.  Winter sports competition will not be permitted until January 11.  As always, the decision to participate in interscholastic athletics is a local school decision and there may be schools that pause sports for a period of time during this next month.  DIAA Board of Directors will discuss winter sports season during next week’s board meeting on Thursday, December 10. 

Per guidance received from the DPH, fall sport championships are permitted to continue during this time.  DIAA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic developments in consultation with Delaware Division of Public Health and Delaware Sports Medicine Advisory Committee.  DIAA member schools are required to continue to follow the State’s order, DPH guidelines, DIAA’s regulations and their DPH approval facilities plan during this time.
