GFPS Athletics Update
MIDDLE SCHOOL SPORTS
Given the spike in COVID-19 infections currently being experienced by Cascade County and Great Falls Public Schools, the GFPS Athletics Department, in coordination with building administration, the Cascade County Health Department, and Athletic Departments at both North Middle School and East Middle School, has made the decision to temporarily delay the Middle School Boys Basketball Season until the start of the new year. GFPS and the Athletics Department are committed to doing our part to help the community flatten the current COVID-19 curve.
We will plan on resuming practices on January 4th with scheduled games to resume shortly thereafter. At this point, we are still planning on offering all Middle School activities (volleyball, wrestling, swimming and track and field) in 2021, although start dates will be affected by the shift of the Boys’ Basketball Season. We will continue to work cooperatively with CCHD on all decisions related to athletics and athletic competition.
This change is for Middle School Boys’ Basketball only. High School Fall Athletics currently participating in post season play will not be affected. As per direction of the MHSA, high school winter activities will begin practice on December 7 with no competitions scheduled until after the start of the new year.
