The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) will hold a special meeting on Monday to reconsider starting football and volleyball seasons this fall.


MSHSL announced Wednesday that its Board of Directors President, Blaine Novak, called a special meeting for 9 a.m. on Monday to reconsider the placement of fall activities seasons.

The meeting will be held virtually.

“The Minnesota State High School League continues its work of providing the safest possible way for students to participate in all League activities and athletics for the 2020-2021 school year,” League Executive Director Erich Martens said. “This special meeting called by Board President Blaine Novak will be a continuation of those very important discussions and decisions.”

Last month the Board decided to move forward with sports that were deemed low-risk and push high-risk activities to the spring.
