FHSAA CORONAVIRUS Update - April 20, 2020
GAINESVILLE, FL -
Following Governor Ron DeSantis' announcement mandating schools continue distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, it is with heavy hearts that the FHSAA has decided to cancel all FHSAA affiliated events, inclusive of the state series and all championship events, for spring sports. The safety of our student-athletes, coaches, officials, and fans is our top priority. With the evolving threat of the CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19), we must ensure that we do not contribute to the spread of this illness. We are deeply saddened for our student-athletes who have seen their seasons and/or high school careers end so abruptly. Our Association knows the impact and role high school athletics play in the lives of so many and will continue to work towards the betterment of high school sports. We know this is a trying time, but the health and safety of all is of utmost importance to this Association.
Under the guidance of the Florida Department of Education regarding grade level retention, and upon review of the Florida Statutes and FHSAA Bylaws, no additional eligibility will be granted for spring sport athletes. For clarification regarding student-athlete eligibility, click here.
To all our senior student-athletes, we thank you for dedicating your time and efforts to your school, your coaches, and your teammates. Cherish the memories you have made and embrace all that the future holds for you. While we are saddened that you are unable to compete this season, we could not be prouder to have been represented by such hard-working individuals.
Our Association is eager to reconvene all sports in the 2020-21 school year. In the meantime, we strongly encourage everyone to continue adhering to the recommendations of the CDC and your local health departments during this hiatus. Please remember to practice social distancing, frequently wash your hands and avoid touching your face. For the latest CDC updates, click here.
We have recently changed to an electronic registration procedure to register for athletics. Athletes must be fully cleared before participation is permitted. Please go to www.athleticclearance.com, select the state of Florida, watch the video and follow the instructions for registration. There is also an instruction sheet for you in English and Spanish. From there, all the forms are available to sign electronically by both parent and athlete or download as necessary. You will need to print out the physical form to bring to the doctor. All physicals must be on this form. Afterwards, you can log back in to your account and upload the scanned document to the registration page. From each family’s account they can register multiple children. If you have any questions please contact the Activities Office.
