Sports Schedules - 2020-2021 School Year
Hello, Lakeside athletes and parents! It is Monday, September 7, 2020, and here is the latest update we have for LMS athletics for the upcoming school year:
We will NOT be starting fall school sports (football, XC, and softball) on the first day of school this year like usual, due to Covid-19 and the restrictions/guidelines placed upon us by the health commission, OSPI, etc. The WIAA has also delayed the beginning of high-school sports seasons this year as well. Our LHS sports will NOT begin until Dec. 28 (and that - per WIAA - may be overly optimistic).
Our sports league (Inland Empire Mid-level League - IEML) is tentatively planning the following sports seasons:
January 2021 - Volleyball and Wrestling
February 2021 - 7th-grade Boys'/Girls' Basketball
*** NOTE *** January and February seasons could be flip-flopped to give wrestling (a "high-risk" sport per WIAA) a better chance to actually allow competition this school year
March 2021 - 8th-grade Boys'/Girls' Basketball
April (after Spring Break) until mid-May - Cross Country, Football, & Softball
Mid-May to mid-June - Baseball & Track
League schedule may group 3 geographically close schools together for this school year for athletic competition purposes. Additionally, sporting seasons shown would potentially only take place and be offered if our county and school is safe to do so and in the sports-permitted "phase" per WA state guidelines. League athletic directors are still in discussions and won't have much more detail until probably at least October. Stay posted! Crossing our fingers we can have interscholastic athletics in the Nine Mile School District this year!
We would have 4-week-long seasons only, but at least our kids would be able to participate!
Regardless, you may still register for sports through Final Forms. Only Cross Country and Wrestling are open to 6th graders. No other sports permit 6th-grade participation.
