The Colorado High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) has announced the guidelines for Season B sports. Here are the guidelines for basketball, water sports and wrestling:


Athletes must wear masks during play.

Regular season will be 14 games (all classes), with 12 games for sub-varsity teams.

Postseason 1A-3A will have a 24 team-bracket and postseason 4A-5A will have a 32-team bracket.

Players are limited to 76 total quarters in the season, excluding of overtime and post-season games.

The 2021 state tournament will have no consolation title.

Teams must play at least 7 games (pending COVID waivers) to qualify for playoffs, and league champions will automatically qualify for the postseason.

The CHSAA Seeding Index will determine each class’s at-large qualifiers, combining data at the season’s end to create overall rankings (data from each ranking will be added together then divided by four).


Regular season can only have at most 20 duals (tris and quads can only have at most four teams attending).

Weight certification will open Nov. 1, and must be completed before competition starts.

Regional tournaments must be two days long (first seven weight classes on first day, then the next seven classes) with a 16-man bracket schedule. Wrestlebacks will start in the third round.

First and second place athletes qualify for the state tournament, which will take place on one day with an eight-person bracket with full consolation titles.

Team scores at both regional and state tournament will determine placers 1-4.


Athletes must arrive at established time before event; pools will be cleared when each event ends.

Schools can submit as many as four entries per event.

All meets must follow local limits of participants allowed indoors.

Regular season will have at most 7 meets plus league events (no individual or team minimum meet requirement).

Schools may only compete against teams within their own league during the regular season.  

Formal practice starts Jan. 18, competition starts Jan. 25, regular season ends March 6 and state meets run March 11-13.

Each classification in the state meet will have 20 qualifying athletes per event, with athletes qualifying based on their regular season times.
