MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Midsouth Association of Independent Schools will have sports in the fall.

On Wednesday, the association released guidelines for school openings and fall sports.

“Unlike the spring in which all campuses were closed but schooling continued, this fall will see campuses open and functioning fully,” the release stated.

As for fall sports, the first date of competition for football will be Aug. 21 while fast-pitch softball, volleyball and girls soccer are allowed to begin play July 31.

The release also stated that member schools can withdraw from athletic competition without losing their MAIS membership. For schools that choose to compete, they must follow the association’s “longstanding policies and rules.”
