Friday Night Lights Recognizes Student-Athletes

The Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association (DIAA) joins with all student-athletes, coaches, officials, member schools and families in our state in combating the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).  Although regular school attendance and interscholastic athletics have been closed since March 16, we acknowledge the dedication and desire of our member schools, student-athletes, coaches, and officials to participate and compete.

In acknowledgement of the sacrifice of our student-athletes, coaches, teams, and officials, the DIAA asks that all member schools and all other athletic facilities in the State of Delaware join us in an effort to let all interscholastic student-athletes, coaches, officials, and families know that we recognize their dedication, commitment, and desire to compete. 

On Friday April 24, 2020, we are asking all outdoor athletics facilities in Delaware to operate their stadium and facility lights at 8 p.m. for 20 minutes and 20 seconds as a sign of support to interscholastic athletics.
This is particularly important for our high school seniors, the Class of 2020, who have had their senior seasons impacted by the pandemic.

This joint effort will allow adults to acknowledge our students’ “reason why” they compete in interscholastic athletics.  

DIAA Executive Director Donna Polk said she is excited about “DIAA Friday Night Lights” and looks forward to seeing the various ways student-athletes will be recognized by member schools.  

“We thank all school superintendents, head of schools, principals and athletic directors for their support to make this recognition night happen for students and student-athletes throughout the state,” she said. “We ask students, families, fans and community members to not gather at school facilities to ensure the public gathering and social distancing guidelines are met.  Please visit your schools social media pages or @DIAA_Delaware on Twitter and @DelawareInterscholasticAthleticAssociation on Facebook to capture moments from the evening. We will get through this together!”
