Athletic Directors sort through possible issues with VHSL options
In the first model, traditional seasons would remain, and the current Covid guidelines would dictate what sports would be played. That would present scheduling issues that most Athletic Directors have never dealt with. In VHSL model 3, all three seasons will be compressed into what amounts to about six and a half months.

All this equates to a nightmare for Athletic Directors who will be tasked with simultaneously shoe-horning all these games into a calendar that will have very little wiggle room.
