The University Interscholastic League announced that it is actively working with appropriate state officials to allow schools to begin limited summer strength and conditioning and marching band activities on June 8.


In an email to athletic directors and head coaches, the UIL said it would release the details of this plan, hopefully by the end of the week, which would guide schools on allowing them time to prepare for bringing students back to campus for those purposes.


The announcement came a day after Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that youth and professional sports would be allowed to resume on May 31 as part of Phase 2 in the state's reopening plan.


All UIL spring activities were cancelled while practices, rehearsals, and workouts were suspended until further notice on April 17 due to the coronavirus pandemic.


There are 75 days until the start of the 2020-21 high school sports calendar with volleyball and cross-country practices slated to begin on August 3 with competition set to start the following week. Football practices are scheduled to start on August 5 with the first Friday of the regular season being August 28.
