MSHSL meeting covers future of winter sports

The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) met Thursday to discuss the future of winter sports.

The league discussed what the season and post-season play could look like for hockey and other winter sports.

The league announced competition will start no earlier than Jan. 4 and run through June 19, which is 24 weeks.

The pre-season could consist of two weeks of practice and the postseason would have two weeks of section play and one week of a state tournament run.

However, that is all dependant on state guidelines and the COVID-19 situation in the state. Under new restrictions recently implemented, winter sports are paused until Dec. 19 at the earliest.
