Subject: Spring Moratorium and coach contact
To: All,

The number one reminder, per the moratorium is that we respond and support the decisions of our educational leaders responsibly in regards to COVID-19.  The directive to your coaches to support and uphold the suspension comes from you. We want to provide answers to the most asked questions by the membership. At the end of the day, we won’t be able to answer all the questions created to circumvent the rule but I trust that you will make those decisions, if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it is a duck :0

Coaches can contact student-participants by email, phone and social media regarding voluntary self- workouts, updates, etc. Please reference Q and A 8 under exception 3 of bylaw 2310.5.

No physical contact, open-gyms, weight-lifting, off-site workouts with school coaches including volunteers, no-in season coach supervision of athletes on school grounds,

HS/Club coaches can only have contact with those players in the club setting if those players were already established on their club teams prior to the moratorium. AD’s will need to be the gatekeepers.  

Bylaw 2310.5 Sunday contact is applicable as are all eligibility rules.

No Esports pilot gaming will be conducted during the moratorium even from home sites as representatives of a school team.

Bethany and Jenn have already communicated the no contact for Unified Bowling and Boy’s volleyball

I trust that your leadership and messaging will assist you in these uncertain times in our sports and activity world. We may have an early release at the CHSAA office today so email is preferable for administrators…

Appreciate the overwhelming membership support over the last week and especially today. I have never been so proud to work with or for a Board, Staff, and organization of educational leaders that have come together,  made some difficult decisions in the best interest of our kids and school communities..  

With Sincere gratitude,

Rhonda Blanford-Green, Commissioner-CHSAA

Commissioner’s Missive:

I would just like to “ Thank” the Board of Directors, membership, and the amazing CHSAA staff for your support and guidance. The collaborative decision making has been in the best interest of our students and school communities and that hasn’t gone unnoticed.

All spring sports and activities including practices will be suspended until April 6th to address concerns surrounding the on-going decisions with COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2020 spring sports season, speech tournament, student leadership Advisor U, are suspended through April 6th. All music festivals are cancelled through April 6th . Additionally, an outreach with the Colorado Athletic Director’s Association will be conducted remotely from the CHSAA office. The date will be communicated after the 6th.

The decision is effective as of Friday, March 13, 2020. The decision to continue competitions today as some tournaments are currently being contested will be a local decision, supported by our office. No spring sports, activities, competition or practices can be held until at least April 6th. The situation will be monitored and evaluated with key decision-makers from around the state to determine when, or if, to resume the spring season.

On Wednesday morning, I convened a digital conference with more than 50 administrators representing diverse levels of educational leadership to collaboratively create a plan. That group arrived at a consensus to support the decision made by the CHSAA office.

Further information about the spring sports season will be communicated via CHSAANow, when available.
