Five high schools within the Yuma Union High School District will Livestream winter sports for parents and fans for the 2020-21 season. 

 

The access to games virtually comes after the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) reversed course and allowed winter sports to continue after halting them last month due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

But for those wanting to watch the games in-person, the AIA is only allowing two parents or guardians per home game for the home team only.

After voting to end winter sports amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) reversed course and announced Tuesday that winter sports for the 2020-21 season can begin Jan. 18. 

This means basketball, soccer, wrestling, and spirit line can begin practice and games Monday with the regular season-ending March 5.

The Yuma Union High School District will allow two parents/guardians for each athletic home game. Those games will start on Jan. 25.

PHOENIX --Gov. Doug Ducey wants to open the door to allowing Arizonans to bet on -- or against -- the Diamondbacks and the Cardinals.

And maybe even the Wildcats and Sun Devils.

The Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) announced last week that all winter sports for the 2020-2021 season are canceled as cases of COVID-19 continue to rise throughout the state. 

These cancellations impact basketball, soccer, and wrestling. It also postpones all spirit line competitions indefinitely. 

The AIA Executive Board voted 5-4 in favor of canceling all winter sports during its Jan. 8 meeting.
