Concordia Academy volleyball players wore masks when they played a match against St. Agnes on Nov. 18, the same day Gov. Tim Walz announced a pause on youth sports.

Wearing masks during practices and games and starting the winter sports season without fans in attendance are being discussed as Minnesota high schools prepare to resume practices for winter sports on Jan. 4.

The Minnesota State High School League briefed about 380 school officials Tuesday during a virtual meeting in the wake of Gov. Tim Walz's order last week to extend a pause on youth sports to help control the spread of COVID-19.

"We should be prepared to have to wear masks in sports for practice and competition, yet we don't know that'' as a certainty, said Bob Madison, league associate director.
