MJHS 2020-2021 Activities information as of August 16, 2020
The Rt. 72 Conference AD's have put together a schedule for this year's activities. Please understand, some dates might change depending on factors outside of our control. We will keep you updated as much as possible using email, the district website, and our social media forums. These dates represent start and end dates for the seasons.
Boys Basketball (BBB), Academic Team (AT), and Cheerleading (CH) -- November 16 - January 15
Wrestling (W) and Girls Basketball (GBB) -- January 18 - March 5
Volleyball (VB) -- March 8 - April 16
Track (T) -- April 19 - May 21
As you all know information and situations change often these days. One item I urge you all to not wait on is updating SPORTS physicals. Students are not allowed to practice without them and might miss the opportunity to "make the team" if we need to restrict our participation numbers. Sport specific details will follow. Registration for these activities will open around November 1st.
The number of players per team and the number of spectators will be dependent upon the guidance from the state and health department. We are working on a plan to try and live stream the games if attendance by spectators is not allowed.
