The MIAA Football Committee is seeking answers from the state for the safe return of the sport. We do see high school, college and professional football being played across most of the country, but in Massachusetts, it will not began until late February and run until April 25, the Fall II season.
The Massachusetts Board of Directors voted to move football, among other sports, to the newly created season because of the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. The Fall II season would also include competitive cheering, girls’ volleyball and unified basketball.
     It is not known for sure when the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, which has been tasked with establishing guidelines for amateur sports, will want to see things solidified in terms of modifications.
     The MIAA Football Committee has set out to determine safety issues and concerns of state officials in order to allow conventional football, (blocking and tackling) to take place during a season that hopefully would be concluded by postseason play.
