The Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) is pushing ahead with plans to stage schoolboys football this season with the Under 16 kicking off the season in early October, followed later by the Manning Cup and daCosta Cup, pending government approval, it was announced on Tuesday.

A release later Tuesday afternoon confirmed news that broke earlier in the day that the schoolboys football season could be on as ISSA said they had met and “approved plans for High School sporting competitions to resume by mid-October 2020.”

The release said the junior competition as well as basketball and netball are scheduled to start in early October before the start of the senior football competitions.

“While declaring their intentions to resume competitions, the governing body for High School sports in Jamaica made it clear that any resumption will be subject to Governmental approval and a safe, healthy and secure environment for participants and stakeholders,” the release pointed out.

“The membership of ISSA, which comprises High School principals, discussed a number of protocols which are to be implemented to facilitate the safe return of its competitions. These protocols are to be presented to the relevant Government Officials for ratification and the final approval before dissemination to its schools,” they also said.
