As a result of the Columbia County Health & Human Services Department (CCHHS) and Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WDHS) classifying Columbia County as a High COVID-19 Activity Level region, the Portage Community School District (PCSD) under direction from the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA), is restricting all athletic events on school district property to groups of no more than 10 people.
Therefore, all home games are canceled until further notice. At this time, there is no effect on away games or home practices. Practices can continue to take place on PCSD property so long as groups are limited to groups of 10 people just like we did when we were using the city fields earlier in June. Check with your coach to see if they are using the school fields or the city field. Our online calendar will be updated as events are scheduled, canceled, postponed, and/or relocated. Be sure to check our calendar often and prior to each scheduled event.
Unfortunately, with the uncertainty of whether or not we will be cleared to host any more home games this summer, we have decided to cancel our summer tournament. Teams from throughout Wisconsin were looking forward to competing in our tournament this year. We are looking forward to hosting our tournament(s) next season! More information will be released on our future tournament(s) as information is finalized. Registration for next year's tournament(s) will likely open in February 2021.
We appreciate your understanding as we work through this irregular season. We are making the most of what we have and are grateful that we have been able to get practices in and some teams have gotten a game in! Hopefully next season will be normal again.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
