Fall Athletic Season Announcement

Please see the below announcement from the Superintendents of the South Suburban Conference (SSC) regarding the fall athletic season:

As you probably know, the IHSA has announced a modified schedule for the 2020-2021 school year.  Although the IHSA allows the fall sports of golf, girls' tennis, cross country, and girls' swimming and diving to begin on August 10, the South Suburban Conference (SSC) will delay the start of the season to allow its member high schools time to review Illinois Department of Public Health safety protocols and plan for how they will be implemented within each sport.

Pending final approval of a logistical plan to safely engage our students in athletic competition, the SSC will allow practices to start on August 17 and competitions are slated to begin on August 24.
