Athletics Update

On January 4, 2021, Governor Inslee announced his Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery plan and outlined a phased, metric-based approach for the resumption of educational based athletics. This current approach classified Seattle Public Schools (home of the Metro League) within the Puget Sound Region, composed of King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. Regions are then classified into either Phase 1 or Phase 2. For any athletic season to begin, a region must meet all four metrics to move from Phase 1 to Phase 2.

Based on the information in Governor Inslee’s plan, the Metro League adopted a two-season sports model for this year only.
