UIL Cancels All Remaining Spring Activities and State Championships

 

AUSTIN — Governor Greg Abbott announced that all Texas schools are to remain closed to in-person learning for the remainder of this school year. To help protect the health and safety of Texans, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) is canceling all remaining 2019-2020 spring activities and state championships.

“Our staff had been working hard on plans to resume activities this spring, but without schools in session, interscholastic activities cannot continue,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “Our highest priority during this challenging time is ensuring the health and safety of our students and communities and making progress in the containment of COVID-19 in Texas. We are now turning our attention to the 2020-2021 school year.” 

Practices, rehearsals, and workouts remain suspended until further notice. The previously communicated information allowing remote instruction remains in place. The UIL will continue to follow the direction of state authorities and will work closely with member schools to navigate this unprecedented time. 

“I am grateful to the UIL staff for their leadership and dedication to students,” said UIL Legislative Council Chair Curtis Rhodes. “Together, we will get through this, and we look forward to the day students are once again able to participate in education-based interscholastic activities.”  

Further details will be forthcoming. Please continue to check the UIL website and social media accounts for updates.
