The WYSC supports 2 months of downtime for each interscholastic sport. Downtime is especially important for student-athletes’ bodies that are still growing and developing. Downtime enhances the athletes’ ability to recover following a season of practices and competition, helping prevent overuse and repetitive motion injuries. Downtime does not mean inactivity. The WYSC strongly encourages student-athletes to engage in cross-training activities including participation in different sports and other fitness activities during these months.
