Hoopla regional and provincial tournaments in jeopardy according to SHSAA

The Saskatchewan High School Athletic Association says if sanctions are not lifted by Wednesday afternoon at 3:30, this year’s Hoopla regional and provincial tournaments will be cancelled.

The sanctions, announced the the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation, would require teachers arrive at school no earlier than 15 minutes before school starts, and then leave 15 minutes after the final bell rings. It would mean any extra-curricular activities or after school programming would not be allowed to take place.

SHSAA says about 1700 students and 300 coaches would be impacted by the cancellations, as well as several organizations and entities that are involved in hosting basketball playoffs.

The decision was made during an SHSAA executive council meeting Monday night.
