Currently, winter sport athletes in the county are participating in virtual conditioning.
The exact wording from the press release is as follows:
“Within the first 20 days of practice, each team will scrimmage other county teams. The competitive schedule will include playing county teams again for the record. Assuming winter sports begins on February 6, 2021, the first eligible competition date will be Friday, February 26, 2021.”
If practices cannot begin on that date of February 6th, then the winter sports season will be canceled.
