The Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) Executive Board voted 5-4 to cancel the winter sports season due to concerns relating to COVID-19. This decision impacts all Canyon View basketball, soccer and wrestling teams. The leadership team and athletic directors will come together to make recommendations on continued practices and off-season activities, but all workouts are paused for the time being.
The decision to cancel the season was made after recommendations from the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC) and was primarily due to the increase of COVID-19 hospitalizations in Arizona.
Spring sports, scheduled to begin March 1, will be dependent upon statewide metrics improving and further evaluation by SMAC and the Executive Board. The Board is comprised of representatives of the member schools and statewide educational organizations.
