(WTNH) — The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) issued a proposal on Monday regarding the continuation of winter sports in the state.

“In alignment with DPH [Department of Health] guidance for sports, the CIAC winter season may begin no sooner than January 19, 2020, unless determined otherwise,” writes the CIAC.

The CIAC’s low-risk winter sport is swimming; moderate risk sports are basketball, ice hockey,
gymnastics and indoor track; high-risk winter sports are wrestling, competitive cheer and competitive dance.

The risk classifications were assigned according to DPH guidelines. A final decision on winter sports will be made on Jan. 14.

If and when practice and play resume, officials want all participants wearing masks..

Governor Ned Lamont addressed winter sports just a little while ago.
