Florida High School Athletic Association’s board of directors voted to postpone all high school fall sports in the state until Aug. 24 during its Thursday meeting.

This decision will allow for summer conditioning to take place for Florida student-athletes. It also allows the executive director to work with the sports medicine advisory committee to create recommendations it will present to the board between Aug. 10 to 17.

According to the FHSAA board’s decision, no high school sports teams would be able to practice or try out until Aug. 24.

The goal is to allow for another three weeks worth of data to be gathered for review before fall sports would begin.

On Aug. 17, FHSAA would decide whether to start the season as scheduled or push back the season further.
