According to the Anchorage Daily News, earlier this week, the Anchorage School District shutdown Fall sports practices, including high school football, due to a spike of COVID-19 cases.

Because of the shutdown, ASD schools won’t begin Fall practice on July 29. The earliest that teams could start practicing is August 5, at this point.

Since, the ASD is the largest district in the state, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Alaska School Activities Association push back the start of the regular season set to begin August 20.

Teams across the state have been allowed to workout with restrictions since early June.
