Vermont fall high school sports season will have a delayed start


Vermont high school sports teams cannot begin practicing or meeting for the fall sports season until the first day of in-school teaching.

On Tuesday Vermont Governor Phil Scott announced that schools will all open on Sept. 8 to give schools a longer period of time to prepare for the return of students. With practices beginning around Sept. 8, games wouldn’t begin until the end of September.

On July 7, the VPA spoke with Local 22/44 regarding the status of the fall season. You can find that story here.
