GHSA executive director remains hopeful for a "normal fall"
In an update on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Georgia High School Association activities, executive director Robin Hines told the "Georgia Prep Sports: From a Distance" video podcast Monday the he is "still hopeful for a normal fall."
Hines said the association hopes to open activities "at some level" in the summer -- possibly in June. GHSA shut down sports activities March 12.
“I’m still hopeful for a normal fall,” GHSA executive director Robin Hines told the “Georgia Prep Sports: From a Distance” video podcast Monday.
The executive director said there is no plan to allow some areas impacted less by the virus spread to open sooner so as to not provide an advantage to those teams. He said he hopes to provide “one blanket statement” reopening activities across Georgia.
Hines also warned students against getting together to hold practices while the statewide stay-in-place order remains in place. He added that the state would have to see a “great reduction in the number of coronavirus cases” before a decision is made.
