UIL Sports & Events UPDATES
APRIL 17: UIL Cancels All Remaining Spring Activities and State Championships
With the announcement from Governor Greg Abbott that all Texas schools are to remain closed to in-person learning for the remainder of this school year, and in an effort to help protect the health and safety of Texans, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) is canceling all remaining 2019-2020 spring activities and state championships.
Practices, rehearsals, and workouts remain suspended until further notice. The previously communicated information allowing remote instruction remains in place. The UIL will continue to follow the direction of state authorities and will work closely with member schools to navigate this unprecedented time.
Further details will be forthcoming. Please continue to check the UIL website and social media accounts for updates.
UIL is extending its suspension of all UIL sanctioned activities due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Texas. All contests, practices, rehearsals and workouts will remain suspended until further notice.
At this time, the earliest games and contests may resume is Monday, May 4th. Prior to this date, the UIL will allow its member schools a reasonable acclimatization period for rehearsals and practices to occur. All decisions remain flexible and will be consistent with the advice of local, state and federal officials.
At this time, all rehearsals, practices and workouts conducted outside the school day, as well as spring football, are postponed until March 29. This means that no rehearsals, practices or workouts outside the school day can be conducted during the time period of March 16 through March 29.
