A message from the MSHSL about the Spring Season
The Minnesota State High School League continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the most current information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Office of the Governor. The MSHSL supports the efforts of all students, staff and communities in limiting the spread of COVID-19. The goal of the MSHSL is to be responsive to member schools and keep future participation options open for the spring activity season. Effective immediately and continuing until the Governor of Minnesota has lifted his school closure declaration: • All participation in MSHSL spring activities at all member schools is suspended. • Participation includes, but is not limited to, competitions, training, practices, scrimmages, and contests. Pending a reopening of schools by the Governor, return to participation protocols will be determined and communicated by the MSHSL Board and MSHSL staff.
Adaptive Soccer starts right away at the beginning of the year! That is the Fall Adaptive Sport. Most of our practices and home games are at North with the exception of maybe one or two will be at Tartan. Practice will start right after school at 3 p.m. and go until 4 p.m. Games begin at 4:30 p.m. and run approximately one hour. At North we play in the little gym. Soccer is a CI sport here at Tartan. We currently don’t have enough players to create a PI team.
Adapted Floor Hockey was new to us two years ago, but the students had a blast. Again, floor hockey is a CI sport for the same reason as Soccer. The Coach is Andy Navis and I will be assisting him along with Trudy McQuiston from North. Practices and home games run the same way as soccer does. Floor hockey practice will start in December sometime and games will start, the middle of January.
Adapted Bowling starts in March. Usually after Spring Break and right after Adapted Floor Hockey ends. We bowl at Sunray Lanes. We are bused to Sunray lanes two times a week for practice. Bowling is both CI and PI sport. We have a final tournament at the end of the season. he tournament is held at Brunswick Bowl in Brooklyn Park. It is a big tournament and lasts all day, from 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
We are changing our award ceremonies a little this year. We will have a parent’s night during soccer and floor hockey, but then we will have a big award ceremony at the end of the year (after the bowling tournament). At this time we will give out awards for all three sports. If your athlete is not in bowling but participated in one of the others they will receive an invitation to come bowl and enjoy in the celebration.
Our biggest goal in any sport is for everyone to have fun and be safe.
