Announcements and Important Events
In response to the State mandated closure of all schools in the State of Michigan beginning on Monday March 16th, 2020, the Fraser Athletic Department has suspended all high school and middle school athletic programs until further notice. These are unprecedented times and in following with Fraser Public School District and MHSAA directives, all spring sports tryouts will be suspended at this time until April 13th, all scheduled contests, practices, athletic gatherings and winter end of season sports banquets have been cancelled or suspended until further notice. The athletic program will continue to coordinate with the State governing sports association (MHSAA), the MAC League Conference and the Fraser school district on developing a timeline as to when sports will resume. The current plan is to have those sport teams that have not completed their tryout process to resume tryouts the 1st day back from the shut down. It is important that everyone understands that NO Decision has been made at this time in regards to cancelling spring sports.
Executive Director Mark Uyl of the The MHSAA sent out the following statement ;
“By suspending all sports activities for the next three weeks, we are taking an additional step to maintain safety and minimize risk first, and also keep a level playing field for our schools and teams during this time of uncertainty,” MHSAA Executive Director Mark Uyl said. “A number of schools across the state already were making this decision, and setting this as the standard across our membership is appropriate especially given the quick pace with which this situation is continuing to evolve. Given the rapid, fast-moving and unprecedented events of this week, the MHSAA will use the time during this all-sport suspension of activities to evaluate all options and next steps which will be shared with schools in a timely manner.”
As the district continues to navigate and monitor this ever changing situation, the athletic department will keep students and families updated on developments as they come up. We ask that you continue to monitor the athletic website for updates and cancellations of contest moving forward https://www.fraser.k12.mi.us/athletics
Again, Monday April 13th will be the earliest date at which athletics will have the opportunity to resume tryouts, practices or contests. We ask all of our families to be safe and follow the steps outlined by the CDC on preventing the spread of the coronavirus.
