Illinois to Restrict Sports Activities

Jul 29, 2020

Illinois Governor J-B Pritzker Wednesday announced new safety guidelines to restrict youth and adult recreational sports in the state.

"That includes school-based sports, such as those governed by the IHSA and IESA, travel clubs, private leagues, recreational leagues and sports centers and park district sports programs...just to name a few in the array of examples."

Pritzker says sports are placed into three levels of risk and four tiers of competition.

"At each of the four tiers, different aspects of play are permitted. From no contact practices that include conditioning and training at Level 1 to full-scale tournaments in Level 4."

The guidelines do not apply to professional or collegiate sports.
