AURORA — The winter sports season kicks back into gear this week with the annual break coming to a close.

All sports can resume on Wednesday, meaning boys and girls basketball, hockey, girls swimming and wrestling return to action — though the overwhelming majority of contests aren't until Thursday as teams like to have a formal practice before resuming.

It also means the start of the ski season is drawing closer — the first races are Jan. 11 (alpine) and Jan. 12 (nordic).

January will also bring a number of different meetings, from committees to subcommittees and even outreaches hosted by the Colorado Athletic Directors Association. The CADA meetings are Jan. 8-10 at eight different locations around the state.

For the first time, there will be no Legislative Council meeting in January, as the association has moved to one annual meeting, held now in April.

The CLOC meeting announcing classification and enrollment numbers will be Jan. 28.
