Metro High School Athletics
"As of November 6th, athletics will remain status quo, due to the climbing number of cases in our region. Schools that choose to are permitted to continue their in-house programming, which could include intramurals, tryouts, practices, scrimmages, and training within their own buildings.
The next communication will be made the week of November 23, after the Metro Membership meeting."
"As we continue to navigate through this uncharted territory [caused by covid-19], the ASAA is committed to providing guidance to help our schools to find a safe path forward to returning to sport in the school setting."
