IHSAA lifts July moratorium week; issues other guidance for summer athletic activities

May 6, 2020

The Indiana High School Athletic Association has waived the moratorium week scheduled for the first week of July as schools and athletics take their turn in the reopening of the state.

The moratorium was scheduled for June 28 through July 5, but with the schools remaining closed until June 30 and the state prohibiting any sort of athletic activites on school grounds, the moratorium was lifted. Summer athletic activities may start on Wednesday, July 1, the IHSAA ruled.

"In light of the amount of time students have been restricted from school and contact with their teammates and coaches, the Association is hereby waiving [July moratorium] for the year 2020," the IHSAA said in a statement.

Additionally, the IHSAA issued further clairified that the suspension of school-sponsored athletic activities, saying summer conditioning programs cannot take place at "off-campus" places not owned or controlled by a school. 

"Like a Limited Contact Program, a Summer Open Facility Program must be conducted on campus or at a site where home Contests are regularly held," the IHSAA said. "For example, a School cannot conduct a Summer Open Facility session at the local batting cage for its students wishing to work on their baseball skills but could hold Summer Open Facility session at a municipal field if that is where the School regularly held its home Contests."

These actions accompany Gov. Eric Holcomb's Back On Track Indiana plans, and could be subject to change.
