Most fall sports have the CIAC’s green light to begin full-team practices on Monday with some limited contact permitted. Their counterparts in football continue to search for a way to join in on their own.
Friday was a checkpoint day for those CIAC sports: cross country, field hockey, soccer, girls swimming and girls volleyball. The CIAC said it will check the state’s COVID-19 metrics at each step as it adds practice time or contact and brings teams together. Those sports can play their first games as early as Oct. 1.
