Arizona Prep Sports to Play On After AIA Board Reversal

Brock Fritz Headshot

The Arizona Interscholastic Association has reversed course on last week’s decision to cancel winter high school sports.

The Arizona Republic reported that on Tuesday, just four days after canceling the winter season, the AIA Executive Board restored basketball, soccer and wrestling for the 2020-21 school year. When play resumes Jan. 18, each athlete will be able to invite two parents or guardians into athletic events.

Winter prep sports have yet to start in Arizona, as the AIA had originally also delayed the seasons until Jan. 18. According to The Arizona Republic, the season was canceled last Friday after an advisory committee of medical experts recommended the board cancel “because of the continued coronavirus trend and the impact it’s having on overburdened hospitals.”
