MSHSL Announces Track and Field 2021 Rules and Restrictions


The MSHSL has announced the new temporary rules and restrictions for the 2021 track and field season. The new rules are based on how Minnesota is handling the pandemic and what the state and the MSHSL think is best for all the athletes. 

Guidance and information is subject to change based on the most current information, directives from state government and health department officials and member school feedback.

Though nothing has been said about a potential date for the state track and field championships, we hope that the recent lift of restrictions on pro sporting teams in Minnesota bodes well for the future of the state meet in June.

First Competition Date: April 8, 2021
Last date for Sections: June 12, 2021
