As we look across our nation during this time of both pandemic and social unrest, the Athletic Directors of Northshore stand together fighting for Equity and Racial Justice. We all may not be starting this journey from the same place, but we stand together to make Northshore a safe and supportive environment for all students and families. During this challenging time, we promise to work together in this fight to diminish institutional barriers and promote racial and educational justice. We commit to making this a better place for every person employed by or served by our schools in the Northshore School District.
2020-21 Sports Update - A message from Duggan Harman, NSD Deputy Superintendent on 1/27/21:
The KingCo league recently submitted a waiver to the WIAA regarding seasons and start dates for a return to sports. Today, the league received WIAA approval for the seasons listed below. There are still a number of details that need to be worked out: number of games played for each sport, schedules, and what happens if we do not meet the four criteria to start or continue with a sport based on the Governor and the Department of Health's "Road Mat to Recovery" metrics.
Below is the KingCo order of seasons and start dates:
Season 1 (Fall Sports): March 1 - April 3
Football (February 24 start)
Girls Swim and Dive
Season 2 (Winter Sports): April 5 - May 8
Boys Swim and Dive
Gymnastics (March 29 start)
Season 3 (Spring Sports): May 3 - June 12
Track and Field
One of the priorities of the league was to prioritize spring sports. KingCo placed the spring season last due the fact these sports did not have a season in spring of 2020. This will allow as much time as possible for the COVID numbers to come under control.
Please note this is different from the WIAA season order that came out earlier this month. In addition to this, the Department of Health and Governor's COVID metrics must still be met. The school district will communicate approval to continue with athletics as the metrics are updated.
In order for play to resume in the Northshore School District, mandatory COVID testing will take place for both students and coaches. The school district is working with testing providers and will have more testing details shortly.
The Northshore sports not addressed by the KingCo league's proposal and still being discussed:
- Cheer (sideline) - TBD
- Lacrosse - TBD
- Rowing (Crew) - TBD
- Unified Bowling and Soccer - TBD
- Water Polo - TBD
Additionally, the school district is working with our coaches to provide optional conditioning opportunities for our student athletes. More details on these will come out soon.
