Statement from RIIL regarding Winter Sports:

Due to the statewide pause being extended, RIIL school sponsored sports activity will continue to be prohibited through December 20th.

In reaction to Governor Raimondo’s press conference this afternoon, the Rhode Island Interscholastic League was in contact with the Governor’s team to clarify how today’s announcements might impact high school sports moving forward. It was confirmed that new Youth Sports Guidance will be released sometime next week, and any changes to the guidance will help determine the new start date for the winter sports season.

The Principals’ Committee on Athletics and the RIIL will continue to get feedback from our member schools and state officials and will release more information as soon as it becomes available.
