Additionally, there will be a mandatory shut down of facilities used for the purpose of conducting athletics activities from March 17‐April 5, 2020. With the return to school date tentatively set by Governor DeWine for April 6, the following will TENTATIVELY be in place: April 6 – 10 MANDATORY Practices and/or Acclimatization (if required). On April 11, all scrimmages/regular season contests may begin. OHSAA tournaments will remain on dates as currently scheduled. Since the current situation is rapidly changing, any of these may need to be adjusted.
