Due to the coronavirus pandemic the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association is pushing back the start of Fall sports. The WIAA has moved the start of high school football fall practice to September 5, which means the regular season would start September 18.

“The action was taken in an attempt to relieve pressure on member schools as they prepare for the opening of schools to in-person and/or online learning.”

The regular season was scheduled to start September 5.
