MIDLOTHIAN, Va. - The Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA), our area's largest private school association, voted unanimously not to sanction any championships for the fall 2020 season. As a result, VISAA championships in all sports for the fall 2020 season have been canceled.

The Association says the decision was "in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and after consideration of many factors, including the health and safety of all concerned and the operational challenges faced by member schools."

VISAA says it recognizes conferences and schools may make individual decisions to compete in fall sports, and VISAA did not take any action with respect to winter or spring championships.

Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) was founded in 1997 as an organization that would unify Independent school athletics and provide quality championship events to member schools throughout the state of Virginia. It has grown and emerged and now has over 95 member school.
