If athletic participation cannot resume until January, one possible option being considered by the NCHSAA is to play shorter seasons of Fall, Winter and Spring sports, between January and the end of June. All athletes (Fall, Winter & Spring sports) would have to be academically eligible for second semester, which would be based on their first semester coursework. This would require any student-athlete who participates in any sport to pass at least three semester-long courses. Seniors must register for at least three classes. There is no exemption.
