IHSA Invites IDPH and Governor to Upcoming Meeting

(Bloomington, IL) — The Illinois High School Association is inviting Governor Pritzker and the state health department to attend its board meeting next week. The board said it hopes to create a dialogue and build a more collaborative relationship with all the entities involved with developing sports policy in the state during the pandemic. The IHSA announced last month that basketball practices could start November 16th and games could begin November 30th. That announcement came a day after Pritzker said winter sports have been put on hold. The board is also recommending that schools planning to begin basketball practice on Monday should adhere to the health department’s Level 1 restrictions until at least November 19th.
