2020 has been defined by COVID-19 and its cancellation of, well everything.
Nebraska has been one of the best states in handling the COVID-19 pandemic and that will translate into the fall and hopefully playing a full slate of High School sports.
On Monday, July 20th the NSAA put out this statement, a positive outlook for sports in Nebraska:
The NSAA is preparing to begin the 2020 fall sports season as currently scheduled. First practices for football, volleyball, cross country, girls golf, boys tennis, and softball are set to begin August 10th.
The health and safety of our student participants, coaches, and officials has been our priority as we work to provide activities for our member schools. This will not change, and modifications may have to be made. Please be understanding and flexible as we continue to try to navigate through this pandemic. We will continue to work with the Governor’s office, Nebraska Department of Education, and the local health departments to make the best decisions for your students and our member schools
