SIJHSAA Cancels Winter Basketball Season, Citing Insurance

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS – The Southern Illinois Junior High School Athletic Association has voted to cancel its winter basketball season.

According to a release from the Association, the board voted unanimously at 19-0 to cancel the season. The release stated the reasoning behind the cancelation is that insurance carriers refused to insure schools that decide to play.

The IHSA, as of Friday, is still moving forward with their winter season, with practices set to begin Nov. 16 and the season Nov. 30.
