Fox Valley Association girls swimming and diving competitions and boys volleyball matches will be held in the spring, while other fall sports events will be split among the fall and spring seasons.
The Appleton, Oshkosh and Fond du Lac School Districts have chosen to move all of their fall sports activities to the WIAA alternate spring season. Kaukauna, Kimberly and Neenah will have some sports in the fall and some in the spring, while all of Hortonville's fall sports will compete in the fall.
Hortonville and Kaukauna are the lone FVA schools participating in football, boys soccer and girls volleyball during the traditional fall season. Hortonville and Kaukauna will join Kimberly in playing girls tennis in the fall, while Neenah will join all three schools for fall boys and girls cross country and girls golf competitions.
The FVA had originally announced that member schools would not be permitted to participate in fall non-conference activities, but that restriction was lifted when such a small number of schools chose to continue playing in the fall. Green Bay Notre Dame will compete against FVA schools in cross country and girls tennis.
The alternate fall season will begin Feb. 15 for girls swimming and diving. Boys and girls volleyball will start practice on Feb. 22. Girls tennis and football start on March 8 with cross country starting on March 15 and boys soccer beginning on March 22. Girls golf starts practice on March 29. The winter seasons are expected to end earlier than usual with traditional spring seasons starting later than usual in order to accommodate the alternate fall season.
The Fox Valley Association begins its 51st season of competition during the 2020-21 school year. The Fox Valley Association is one of the oldest athletic conferences in Wisconsin with six of its seven original members still intact from its founding in 1970.
With 10 schools totaling an enrollment of over 15,000 students, the conference spans the length of Lake Winnebago from Kaukauna to Fond du Lac. Fox Valley Association schools are members of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) and the conference sponsors 20 championship sports.
The Fox Valley Association has had plenty of great teams, athletes and moments that have made the conference special over the past five decades. Click below to read a recap of some of the best. Hard copies of the document are available at Fox Valley Association events over late January and February.
