Sports have been a toss-up across the state of Arizona, arguably none more so than on the Native American Reservations. But now, sports could be on the horizon for some.

The entire Conference 3A North Region canceled fall sports a few months back and winter sports have been in jeopardy, but with a proposal to the Arizona Interscholastic Association on the table, sports could come back starting in January 2021 for schools in northeast Arizona.

Schools from the 1, 2 and 3A conferences have collaborated for a return to sports, according to a statement released earlier this week, and have set up a proposal with new start dates for high school athletics.
