Illinois Shifts Football to Spring;

The State of Illinois has moved fall football, soccer, and volleyball competitions to springtime events.  The new list also condensed the seasons for both winter and spring competitions.

Football, boys soccer, and volleyball in Illinois will now be played between February 15th and May first.  Baseball and Softball—usually springtime sports—will be played this summer– between May third and June 26th.  Boys and girls’ basketball will stay in the winter, with a November 16th to February 13th schedule.  The only sports to be played in Illinois this fall are golf, girls’ tennis, cross country, and swimming.  Boys’ tennis will also move to an early-summer schedule.

The schedule was announced by the Illinois High School Association in association with the Illinois Department of Public Health.
