The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) has released an initial set of guidelines for summer workouts, a first step towards returning to high school sports in the fall.

According to the guidelines, on July 13, member schools can begin phase one of implementing summer workouts, this phase will continue until at least July 26.

Additional guidelines and specific timing for subsequent phases are pending, and details will be shared at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the next phase.

“These guidelines represent the first of a succession of steps toward meeting our return to play targets,” Colleen Maguire, NJSIAA chief operating officer said. “But, it’s important that we take a disciplined approach and stay mindful of health and safety concerns for all.”

Start dates for all fall sports remain unchanged, though the NJSIAA continues to emphasize that all dates are subject to revision.
