Closure of Schools Officially Ends Prep Spring Sports Season

With Wednesday’s decree from Governor Bill Lee to close schools until the end of the school year, the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association(TSSAA) has officially ended the spring sports season.   After talking to representatives of both the Coffee County School System and the Manchester City School System, both have reluctantly agreed to end the spring sports season.  Each system will issue guidance to summer workouts and fall sports at a later date.  The TSSAA released the following press release on Wednesday afternoon.

With the Governor’s announcement of school closure for the remainder of the school year, all remaining TSSAA events for 2019-20, including all spring sports and the postponed state basketball tournaments, are cancelled. This is an unprecedented time across our state and country, and we do not make this decision lightly. We thank all of the participants, their coaches, administrators, parents, and everyone else who has dedicated a tremendous amount of time, passion, and effort to high school athletics, especially these affected events.

To our senior participants – we thank you for everything you have done for your schools and communities and wish you the very best in your bright futures. This is difficult, but the lessons you’ve learned and friendships you’ve made through high school activities will last your lifetime. We look forward to the resumption of high school athletics during the 2020-21 school year, and will continue work on those events at this time. The TSSAA thanks everyone involved for their patience and understanding throughout this process.
