Fall 2020: Fall Athletics




August 5, 2020


The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) has decided girls tennis, boys and girls cross country, girls swimming and diving, and boys and girls soccer will continue this fall, with limitations. Volleyball and football seasons will move to spring 2021. Winter sports are not part of discussions at this time. Full details on how decisions were made and the criteria for fall sports are available on the MSHSL website

Here is how the decisions affect PACT:

  • PACT co-ops with other schools for most of these sports, so we encourage you to contact those schools’ coaches. To learn more, visit our website
  • We know moving volleyball to spring is a disappointment to our athletes, especially those who play more than one sport. MSHSL is working on scheduling sports seasons throughout the winter and spring to allow athletes to participate in multiple activities with minimal overlap. We will let you know when decisions are made. 
  • We are still working through the details related to boys and girls soccer and deciding whether or not we will be able to have a soccer season while secondary is in a hybrid learning scenario. We will send information about soccer later this week once we consult with our conference schools and review the state’s guidelines. 


To allow PACT extra time to sort through various details, the annual activities meeting scheduled for August 10 has been rescheduled to 6 p.m. on August 13. This meeting is required for any Secondary student who intends to participate in an extracurricular activity during the 2020-2021 school year. The meeting is virtual - we invite you to join via Zoom

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
