The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) Board of Directors met on Friday afternoon, 8/7, after Governor Tom Wolf announced on Thursday that he 'strongly recommends' that there be no K-12 interscholastic or recreational sports until January 1st. Wolf's statement came as a surprise and was given at the end of a press conference as a response to a question about parental attendance at games. Today, the PIAA said that it will pause mandatory workouts for fall sports for two weeks, but that voluntary workouts can continue. The board will reconvene on August 21.

The PIAA approved fall sports last month using guidance from individual sports steering committees and the PIAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee. It still believes that it safely sponsor fall sports. The PIAA also believes that delaying sports until January 1 "has a potential negative impact on the students' physical, social, emotional and mental health." The Board is asking to sit down with the Governor and Department of Health and Education to discuss fall sports.
