CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - High school sports are back in action in the commonwealth.

The Virginia High School League (VHSL) says it understands there will be some hiccups along the way, but it is happy with the results thus far. So far, winter sports is the only season playing.

VHSL Executive Director Billy Haun says the return to sports is great for everyone involved.

“The important thing is that we give kids an opportunity,” Haun said. “We give communities an opportunity to get kids back out there and play. There are just so many great lessons that come from being a part of the high school experience and being a part of a team.”

Haun also says 88% of member schools have plans to participate in sports this year.
