PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The PIAA says they will be reconvening next week to further discuss the start of the fall sports season.
The decision has been up in the air since last week when Gov. Tom Wolf issued comments recommending that youth sports be canceled until January.
PIAA Executive Director Dr. Robert A. Lombardi said in a news release, “We will continue to be advocates for athletic activities that promote the health, and safety, social, emotional, and mental well-being of student-athletes”. Since March, PIAA has taken a measured approach in a step-by-step basis to assist our membership in developing Return to Competition Guidelines that will assist in providing schools with a framework to develop best practices for a safe return to play. To that end, the PIAA Board of Directors will meet again on Friday, August 21, 2020 to discuss the starting of fall sports.”
