Tuesday March 10th:
- CIAC (Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference) made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining postseason tournaments - effective immediately.  
We understand the enormity of this CIAC's decision and how much this decision affects the student athletes. They have given so much time and effort to their teammates and coaches this season. For seniors, this may have been their last opportunity to compete in a sport that they have spent so many years practicing and competing in. We understand their disappointment and my heart breaks for all of the student athletes affected. 

Please see the email from CIAC sent shortly ago.

Statement from CIAC Officials:
"After much consideration and consultation, the CIAC has made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining CIAC winter tournament games. The CIAC understands the disappointment that student-athletes, parents, coaches, and administrators may feel as a result of this decision. However, we must always place our student-athletes’ health and safety first.

Due to continuing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the responses from local school districts and third-party venues have greatly varied. Some districts have informed us that they will no longer participate in our tournaments; others have indicated that will play while limiting crowds to less than 100 people; still others have stated they will play without any spectators in attendance; and finally, neutral sites have informed us that they can no longer host our events.

Given the wide range of direction local districts are considering, coupled with diminishing availability of neutral facilities, the CIAC needs to take the lead in providing logistical direction to our membership.  Therefore, with many questions and unknowns still pending in Connecticut about COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel our remaining winter championships so that schools can focus their attention on meeting their student’s educational needs.
