High school sports across the state will be permitted to begin contact practices on June 22

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted announced on Thursday that high school sports across the state will be permitted to begin contact practices on June 22.

Phase 2 involves reopening contact practice for all sports. Football, lacrosse and other contact sports can resume intra-squad scrimmages, but not scrimmages against other schools. Full training regiments are also allowed as long as safety protocols are observed.

Off-season workouts and activities for basketball and other sports are also permitted to take place.

The Ohio High School Athletic Association is closely following state health guidelines and regulations.
