NIAA moves all 2020-21 prep sports to Spring

Robert Perea, The Fernley Reporter

Prep sports in Nevada will be played in truncated seasons next spring under the latest directive from the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association.

The adjustments, announced Thursday, were the result of consultation with northern and southern league and region presidents in each of the classifications, the NIAA said.

Under the new plan, the winter sports season would begin with practice Jan. 2 and end with the last contest on Feb. 20. The fall sports season would follow with practice beginning on Feb. 13 for football and Feb. 20 for other sports, and the last contest played on April 10.


Spring sports practice would begin April 3 with the last contest on May 22.

Those dates would include any playoffs, but the NIAA said it does not anticipate that there would be State Tournaments.
