The 2A Greater Saint Helens League Athletic Directors, with guidance from the Department of Health, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association, and district superintendents have made the difficult decision to move all WIAA season 1 athletics to season 3. Although we recognize this decision has negative impacts for our participants, the safety of all our student athletes, coaches, fans, and family members are our #1 priority.
The communities served by our league have seen an increase in COVID-19 cases that prompted the recommendation from public health officials to postpone athletic and extracurricular events. Coaches and league leadership weighed the many benefits of athletic participation against the risks involved, and feel strongly that this is the best decision that could be made for our students. All of us look forward to having all our student athletes on campus and competing in the future.
