Winter Sports Update - Sports to Resume January 4th

By Staff, 12/17/20, 11:30AM CST


Cretin-Derham Hall winter sports will be able to start practice on Monday, January 4. A decision on games will be made at a later time. Governor Tim Walz announced Wednesday that the state is extending the four-week pause on youth and adult sports for two more weeks to minimize the fast-moving community spread of COVID-19.

To participate in any winter sports team practice on Jan. 4, CDH student-athletes must ensure that all required registration forms and a current physical are submitted to theCDH Athletic Office. For links and instructions, click here.

As a reminder, all students who wish to participate in winter sports must be enrolled in our hybrid education model. Students who are full-time distance learners may not participate in winter sports.

The Jan. 4 start date for practice was among the options presented by the Minnesota State High School League for restarting winter sports when its board met earlier this month. Winter sports set to resume practice include boys and girls basketball, hockey, alpine skiing and nordic skiing, as well as gymnastics, wrestling, boys swimming and dive, and dance team.

Once games can be scheduled by the Suburban East Conference, the new schedule will be posted on each team’s page. The league plan anticipated up to 10 days of practice before games could begin. However, the league noted that the first date of competition under the new directive has not yet been determined.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Phil Archer ’99 or Bob Kinne ’11 in the CDH Athletic Office.
