Griffins News · AIA Update – Winter Sports

Griffin Nation,
Today, the AIA made the decision to reinstate the Winter Sports Seasons. After additional debate and consideration, Executive Board members voted 5-4 to reinstate the winter sports season with the modifications published on Nov. 30, 2020, along with the additional modifications:

● All students, coaches, and officials will be required to wear a cloth mask or gaiter for the entirety of a game/contest.
● Each school will complete the AIA COVID-19 Athlete/Coach Monitoring From the day of all games/contests and provide a copy to the opposing school prior to the contest.
● Up to two parents or legal guardians may attend their student-athlete’s home games as allowed by the school and county guidelines.
● Any school that violates any of the mandatory modifications, including the COVID-19 Return to Play Form, will lose access to AIA officiating.  

We are working diligently to update our game schedules as first games are slated for January 19th. We are excited for the chance to play and we look forward to getting the seasons started. Stay encouraged GP!
Again, this decision relates strictly to high school and our middle school league is governed separately. If you have any questions, please email Mr. Garrison at
