Season Schedule Changes to HS and MS Sports for 2020-2021
The Illinois High School Association has met with the Illinois Department of Health and the Governors office to talk through a plan for athletics in the 2020-2021 school year. The IHSA officially announced July 29th what their updated schedule for the school year will look like. Schaumburg Christian athletics at the Middle School and High School level will follow the guidelines and procedures set out by the IHSA, IDPH, and ISBE. The IHSA has adjusted the season schedules to allow for all sports to still have the opportunity to compete this school year. Each sport has been rated with a level of risk from higher to lower by the IDPH. Thankfully, all of SCS sports are listed as medium or lower level risk. Cross Country has been listed as a lower level risk and will be allowed to compete this fall. Boys Soccer and Girls Volleyball seasons have been moved to early spring.
Here is the current season schedule that was created by the IHSA. (Middle School athletics will follow a similar schedule, but the conference has agreed to not start any seasons until January.)
Cross Country (MS and HS): August 10-October 24
Boys and Girls Basketball: Nov 16-Feb 13
Boys Soccer and Girls Volleyball: Feb 15-May 1
Boys Baseball, Girls Soccer, and Track & Field: May 3-June 26
Boys Soccer and Girls Volleyball fall preseasons have been canceled. If your 5th-12th grade child is interested in competing in cross country this fall, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We believe athletics at SCS is important for our students’ development spiritually, physically, and mentally. We are thankful for a plan that will allow sports to again be a part of our students’ experience and we look forward to helping them grow as people, students, and athletes this school-year!
We will continue to follow state and local guidelines as safety for our athletes and coaches is a high priority! More updates will be shared as decisions are made.
