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 (UPDATED on November 19, 2020)
Northshore School District Message Regarding Additional WIAA Modification of 2020-21 Sports Season Calendar
The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) announced another addition to the modified schedule for the 2020-21 school year. These dates are as of today, but could change again based on the latest COVID information.
Please see the changes below as they could impact family plans and schedules. This could also impact sports physicals that may now expire during the new season dates.
SEASON 2 (winter): February 1 – March 20
Boys Swim and Dive
Gymnastics - begins January 25
SEASON 3 (fall): March 15 – May 1
Football (begins March 8 – May 8)
Girls Swim and Dive

Track and Field

Non-WIAA Girls Lacrosse
Non-WIAA Rowing (2nd season – sign up under Spring Rowing)

These dates are very different and will affect many sports in ways we haven’t experienced in the past. For example, there will be two holidays that the teams will need to practice through; mid-winter break, February 15-19, for Season 2 and spring break, April 12-16, for Season 3.
There are still many details that need to be worked out in regard to these activities and how they can be implemented in each county and in each district. As we get more information, we will share it with our communities to help you better prepare for the 2020-21 school year.
A Message from Duggan Harman, NSD Athletics Administration:
Friday, June 19, King County moved to Phase 2. This has led many athletes, parents and coaches to inquire about starting summer high school sports practices which normally begin after school is out.
In Phase 2, groups are limited to five or in this case four athletes and a coach. This cohort must stay together and are not allowed to mix with other cohorts. This restriction applies to coaches as well. Social distancing must be maintained, masks worn at all times and cleaning and disinfection rules apply. In other words, in Phase 2, there are significant restrictions imposed on any practices.
For this reason, and after consulting with other KingCo league districts, the vast majority of which are adopting similar guidelines, Northshore Schools will not allow district athletic activities until at a minimum Phase 3 is reached.
Once Phase 3 is reached, district administration will evaluate opening practices and will issue further guidance.
