NHIAA Fall Sports Updates
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.
