Currently, the CIAC believes that the approved fall sports plan aligns with the educational interests of our member schools and provides the safest athletic experience for Connecticut student-athletes. Any official changes to this plan will be communicated as soon as made available to our district.

JULY 30th UPDATE:
The CIAC has collaborated with a multitude of stakeholders since the decision to stop interscholastic athletics this past March. Throughout this challenging time, CIAC has maintained that when the time is right, Connecticut will play again. The COVID health metrics in Connecticut, and the playing of youth sports in our state since June 20th, support that a return to in-person instruction, education-based interscholastic athletics, and other cocurricular activities that are critical to the cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and mental health of our students. . While the health and safety of our school communities remain our top priority, we must recognize that the cessation of on-campus learning and education-based cocurricular endeavors has negatively impacted our students. Through consultation with the Connecticut State Medical Society Sports Medicine Committee, the State Department of Education, the Department of Public Health, the Connecticut Athletic Trainers Association, the Connecticut Association of Athletic Directors, the Connecticut High School Coaches Association, superintendents, principals, officials, and legislators, the CIAC provides the following fall sports plan intended to engage students in structured interscholastic athletics, while accounting for COVID mitigating strategies.
