Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak is opening the door for high school football practice to begin for a Spring 2021 season. On Wednesday, the governor removed the sport from the no play list, which means practice can begin on Thursday.

With the non-contact acclimation beginning, the six-game regular season could begin March 5 or March 12.

In addition to the six-game regular season, the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association could include a regional championship games on April 10.

The state’s governing body must now develop a COVID-19 testing program before practices and games resume. Coaches, staff and athletes will be tested for COVID-19 weekly.

As far as attendance, fans will be allowed at games, but will be limited to 100 people or 35-percent capacity, whichever is less. That attendance cap will be in-place until least mid-March. If the state’s COVID-19 numbers continue to decline, the attendance cap could be increased.

Unfortunately for schools in Clark County, which includes the City of Las Vegas, the season was cancelled last month.
