The Alaska School Activities Association announced the cancellation of all 2020 Fall State Championship Events. For the activities currently in season, Regions are allowed to complete their Regional championships, if they are able to do so prior to November 22, 2020.
This decision applies to the following: Football, Swim & Dive, Gymnastics, Rifle, Music, Esports, DDF and Volleyball.
In addition, the Alaska School Activities Association is announcing the postponement of all other activities until the adoption of a revised calendar.
This decision is based on:
• Consultation with the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and the Anchorage Health Department.
• The current status of COVID-19 case counts and the projections of the case counts increasing in Anchorage and other parts of the State.
• The impact of travel during the holiday season both into and out of Alaska. The Board of Directors is currently scheduled to meet again on November 9, 2020.
“Motion to postpone all state activities not already started to a season to be determined.”
All remaining ASAA Activities will be rescheduled. This includes the following activities: Hockey, Hockey Sideline Cheer, Nordic Ski, Wrestling, Basketball, Basketball Sideline Cheer, Esport (Spring Season), Track & Field, Soccer, Coed Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Mix-6 Volleyball, DDF, World Language, Student Govt (Spring Conference), All State Art and Solo & Ensemble.
Plan of Action:
ASAA has formed a Calendar Revision Committee made up of one member from each Region. The Committee will meet and present a plan to the ASAA Board of Directors at their upcoming November 9, 2020 meeting. The Board will then review the recommendations. The Board may choose to make further changes to the recommendations, but will attempt to take action in a timely fashion.
