Madison schools shut down athletic facilities, player-coach contact ‘through July at a minimum’

Art Kabelowsky:

Madison Metropolitan School District athletic director Jeremy Schlitz has shut the door to summer coach-athlete contact and facility availability for athletic teams at the four MMSD high schools “through July at a minimum,” due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

That decision shuts down facilities through the weekend before the Aug. 3 scheduled start of high school football practice activities, with other fall sports scheduled to begin practices soon afterward.
