NEW JERSEY – The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) is committed to doing whatever possible to provide New Jersey’s student-athletes with some type of spring season, they said in a statement.
“We have models in place that allow for competition starting as late as May 25,” read the statement, “but given the late start date, tournament play may not be viable. Our commitment to conclude the spring season, no later than June 30 stands. As the governor noted, we remain hopeful.”
“I would be in favor of any type of modified schedule,” said Union’s Athletic Director Linda Ionta. “We in Union are not willing to give up hope.”
The NJSIAA said the return-to-school date and related public health guidelines will continue to determine the viability of a spring sports season.
