The Michigan High School Athletic Association has suspended its Fall tournaments for girls volleyball, girls swimming & diving and football, and all winter practices and competitions scheduled to begin over the next three weeks per the emergency order to pause activity announced Sunday by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
The MDHHS Epidemic "Three Week Pause" Order announced by Governor Gretchen Whitmer on Sunday evening also suspends all in-person learning for all of the state's high school students for three weeks beginning Wednesday, November 18th. Students ranging from preschool age to 8th grade may still attend in-person but that decision will be left to the individual school district.

MHSAA Executive Director Mark Uyl said “We understand the need for action, and we will explore all options to complete our Fall tournaments when restrictions are lifted. We will assess everything over the next three weeks relative to Fall and Winter sports and come up with a plan that keeps us connected to our goal, for months, of having three seasons that are played to their conclusions.”
