Winter Sports Update (10/21/2020)

The NHIAA Council met on Friday, Oct 16th and approved the following motions:
  • The Council unanimously approved the "recognition" of all winter sports of the 2020-2021 school year.
  • The Council unanimously approved the waiver of the regular season scheduling by-laws which require schools to play a minimum of games in their division to qualify for the postseason. This action mirrors what occurred this fall to allow schools the freedom to develop regional schedules.
  • The Council unanimously approved the following modification to the start dates of the Winter Season:
    • Beginning on Monday, November 30, 2020 "skills and drills" activities may be conducted in acccordance with all NH "Amateur and Youth Guidelines" and Phase 1 and 2 of the NHIAA Reopening Guidance.
    • First date to practice all winter sports is Monday, December 14, 2020.
    • First date to play winter sports is Monday, January 11, 2021.
    • The last date to play is still to be determined.
  • The Council unanimously approved that all NHIAA winter postseason events shall be conducted in an "open" format.
 
Similar to the Fall Season, the District will decide which winter sports will be offered and for those that are approved, determine what scheduling considerations will be followed.

The Division 2/Division 3 Southern Cluster has created a Return To Play plan outlining several key strategies that will allow us to meet our objective of students safely being able to participate in athletics and activities. These strategies and guidelines have been established to reduce potential risk to participants and the community. Your help is required as we outline specifics related to Milford High School Home Athletics. 
 
SPECTATORS AT MILFORD HIGH SCHOOL HOME GAMES 
 
  • Two (2) Spectators per player/participant and coach (Home and Away)
  • Spectators will be screened for symptoms and temperature check prior to entry
  • Spectators must present color-coded, numbered card to obtain access to the event
  • Spectators allowed 30 minutes prior to match or game time to enter the facility and must wear masks
  • Spectators must exit immediately after the match or game
 
HOME FOOTBALL GAMES
 
  • We will not be charging admission to games this year and will not offer a concession stand in order to avoid money exchange and lessen contact.

MHS ATHLETICS UPDATE - 9/2/20
 
Fall Sports, not affected by Town Voting Day, will begin on September 8th. Voting will be held at Milford High school. Impacted progtams will begin September 9th with coaches providing those details soon through meetings and/or communications.
 
Paperwork must be turned into to Athletics before attendance at the first practice. Contained within the Athletic handbook (see link to the right) are the Emergency Information Form (required by all), Physical Form, and Baseline Concussion Testing Handout. Paperwork can be submitted to the Main Office at the High School, or scanned to marc.maurais@milfordk12.org
 
All students competing on a Milford team must turn in a current physical to Athletics prior to their participation on a team. Once a current physical is on file, that physical is good for all four high school years. 
 
For the fall of 2020, baseline concussion testing is waived for 9th graders who completed the test last year at Milford Middle School. If not, a freshman is required to take the test. Contact/collision sport athletes (field hockey, football, soccer, spirit, and volleyball) are to be tested every other year. Coaches will be making arrangements in meetings and communications to schedule testing this week and on Septebmer 9th (if needed.)
 
We are excited to begin and ask each of you to support each other by making a commitment to follow all school and athletic safety guidelines.
 
 
MHS ATHLETICS UPDATE - 9/1/20
 

Beginning September 8th, the Milford School District will allow NHIAA approved sports to be played. In order to offer our varsity athletes a competitive season while balancing team and school safety, a small league of southern schools has created a joint plan. The Southern Cluster of schools includes: Campbell, Hollis-Brookline, Milford, Pelham, Sanborn, and Souhegan.

Varsity level competitions will occur with a revised local game schedule utilizing strategies to reduce potential risks to participants and communities. The recommendations and directives of the NHIAA, CDC, and the NH DHHS were carefully followed throughout the development of this regional plan.

Sub-Varsity level teams will be allowed to practice, train, and compete intra-squad through October 1st. AT that time, the Southern Cluster of schools will consider adding inter-scholastic sub-Varsity competitions into the plan. 

Coaches will reach out to their athletes to coordinate their return to play. Many teams have been already conditioning, other teams will begin now that they have been cleared to move forward and prepare a season.
