WISCONSIN — The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) released a set of guidelines for high school sports on Thursday, outlining precautions teams and officials will take when seasons start back up.
The 16-page document categorizes sports based on risk level. Teams and schools are urged to reach out to state and local officials regarding their schools opening up.

From there, each risk level addresses limitations on gatherings, cleaning guidelines, hydration, and athletic equipment.
Additionally, referees and other officials will see adjustments as well. For example, all officials and coaches are urged to wear face masks, and instead of whistles, they will use other noisemakers such as a blow horn.
There will be no pre-game or post-game handshakes, fist-bumps, or high-fives. Teams are also encouraged to limit traveling, and only play against schools in the area.
