For Immediate Release:

March 23, 2020

On Monday, March 23, 2020, Governor Wolf issued a “stay at home” directive to citizens in seven counties for the next two weeks. This directive also closes all commonwealth schools and all non-essential businesses for another two weeks. The Governor is taking a measured approach in mitigation to assist in combating the coronavirus.

Therefore, the start of spring sports is postponed another two weeks and the possible re-start of the winter championships will continue to be on hold. No date has been determined to re-start any sports activities at this time. PIAA will continue to receive information from the Governor’s office, the Department of Health and the Department of Education to provide updated information.

As we navigate through this difficult time we need to remember the lessons that interscholastic athletics has taught us: cooperation, patience, sacrifice, responsibility, respect and perseverance. We will provide more information as it becomes available to us.

Please continue to practice good health habits as continually being promoted by the PA Department of Health:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • Cough into your elbow, not your hands.
  • Clean surfaces frequently.
  • Practice social distancing guidelines.
  • Stay at home.
  • If feeling ill, contact your local health provider.

By working as a team we can help fight against the spread of the coronavirus.
Stay calm; stay home; stay safe.

   The Butler Area School District Athletic Department believes that a well-developed athletic program is integral in the educational process of students and serves to enhance social, physical and educational development.  The athletic program is an extension of the academic program and all athletes are urged to strive for excellence in both the classroom and in the athletic venues.  Being a part of a team has many benefits and rewards.

     The central goal of this athletic program is for the student-athlete to learn the importance of integrity, respect, discipline, hard work, and how to deal with success and adversity.  These teachings build good character and confidence, along with being the driving force for our student-athletes to take this into their future life and become more productive members of the community.

     Participation in Butler Area School District athletics, however, is a privilege and not a right; and that privilege is earned by each participant through his or her adherence to the rules and policies set forth by the Butler Area School District and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association.
