CHESHIRE, Conn. (WTNH) — The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) has announced Thursday that the scheduled start of the high school winter sports season has been postponed.

The season was originally scheduled to start on Nov. 21. The CIAC said it was “postponed pending the review of forthcoming guidance from the state Department of Public Health (DPH).”

The CIAC said it will review the guidance provided by DPH and will include any possible modifications to their winter sports plan to allow for safe participation.

The CIAC Board of Control is expected to consider a new start date for the winter sports season on Nov. 17.

In a statement Thursday evening, the CIAC said:

The CIAC continues to work in collaboration with the Connecticut State Medical Society’s Sports Medicine Committee, the Governor’s Office, and the Connecticut Department of Public Health in planning for a safe interscholastic winter sports season. “We appreciate the continued consideration DPH is giving to our conversations,” said CAS-CIAC Executive Director Glenn Lungarini. The CIAC and its Sports Medicine Committee will review the latest guidance from DPH and then release a winter sports plan following a CIAC Board of Control meeting on Tuesday, November 17th.
