High School State Competition
High School students have been through a lot this year and now the NCHSAA (North Carolina High School Athletic Association) created a calendar for spring sports to have states on June 25 and 26th (2021) when students already finish school on June 10, 2021.
The problem with state competition for Spring sports being on June 25 and 26th is that many Seniors have other obligations such as leaving to serve in the military, have internships for jobs, parents have already set dates for vacations, etc. It's a shame that our Seniors will have to miss out on participating in state competitions because of a late date. I know some students going into the military leaving on June 24th which means they miss participating in Track states by one day. How awful! Here we have young men and women going to serve their country and can't have the opportunity to participate in state competition because states being late in June. NC and California are the only two states with late dates for state competition.
Please sign this petition asking NCHSAA to move state competition back for all Spring sports by one week and have state competition the weekend of June 19-20th instead of June 25 and 26th.
Thank you for your support.
