In accordance to the Arkansas Activities Association’s (AAA) regular calendar, school athletics and related activities will be prepped to resume this fall, according to a Tuesday afternoon statement from the association. The preparations are contingent upon compliance with all directives as issued by Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s office and the Department of Health.
In collaboration with the NFHS, AAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee, Coach’s and Official’s Advisory Committees, and other affiliated activity committees, plans are being formulated to comply with all directives and safely return to participation, according to the AAA.
The association said all states contiguous to Arkansas have indicated they are making similar plants to begin as scheduled this fall. Plans are also being discussed at all levels in regard to adjustments to the calendar if necessary.
