WHSAA BOARD OF DIRECTORS APPROVES FACE COVERING MANDATE - 11/16/2020
The WHSAA Board of Directors approved a face covering mandate for all winter sports and activities. This mandate will be for spectators as well as participants and coaches. Please see the updated Smart Start Guidelines and Sport Considerations below.
BASKETBALL AND WRESTLING PLANS APPROVED - 9/17/2020
We continue to learn, monitor and adjust as we navigate through the current pandemic. We appreciate that the Wyoming Department of Health understands the importance of our activities in enhancing the educational experience of our students. Safety is still our number one priority. With these two sports being indoors and considered contact sports, it will provide new challenges for all involved.
FINE ARTS AND VOCATIONAL ACTIVITIES PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS!! - 9/17/2020
The Fine Arts and Vocational Education programs provide many opportunities for our students to foster leadership and learn lifelong skills that will benefit those students in future years. The activities side of the WHSAA is another arena that serves several of our Wyoming students in a positive manner. Our schools do an outstanding job of providing these opportunities as they understand the benefits our students realize by being involved and connected to the schools.
FALL SPORTS TO BEGIN ON TIME!! - 7/28/2020
We are excited for our students. We appreciate the WDH and WDE working with us to be able to approve a plan we all believe can safely return our students to their sport. This is a great example of how working together will allow our students to continue to enhance their educational experience. We know the mental and emotional issues those students experienced last spring when track and soccer were cancelled. See full Press Release below.

COVID-19 UPDATES - 6/30/2020
There has been an inordinate amount of effort put forth by several individuals and groups to plan and make returning our educational based activities a possibility this fall. Please follow all guidelines that your school district and local health department have implemented. Please do not be selfish, which could make our state have to backtrack as some of the other states are currently having to do. This will only delay or make us go through another scenario like we had in the spring.
The link below has the guidelines that have been sent to the schools for returning student/athletes back to campus. These are recommendations and school districts have worked with their local health departments to formulate their plans. There is also a document that shows the decisions that were made at our Board Meeting in June.
The link below has the sport rule considerations, recommended by the NFHS, we will be following this fall.
