Model 1 would leave all sports in the current season. Low and moderate contact risks sports that would be allowed to play are golf and cross country. High-risk sports that would not be played are field hockey, football, volleyball and cheer. Theater would be allowed as a fall activity.

High-risk sports that would not be played are boys and girls lacrosse. Spring activities that would be allowed are theatre, forensics/debate and film festival
Model 3 would delay all VHSL sports and adopt the Condensed Interscholastic Plan. It would leave all sports in the season where they are currently aligned.
