NYSPHSAA Official Athletics Release

The district wants to share the most recent information regarding the process and standing of athletics in schools.

 

Section 2 of The NYSPHSAA Inc. continues to follow the directives, guidelines, and recommendations that come out from our Federal, State, and Local Government agencies, as well as The State Education Department and the NYSPHSAA. 

 

NYSPHSAA will continue to hold out hope that student-athletes will have the opportunity to return to Interscholastic Athletic competition and hope that our spring student-athletes can still compete on whatever timeline and for whatever duration we are allowed too.

 

Here are some facts and realities of NYSPHSAA's Current Position:

 

  • All Section 2 competitions (scrimmages & contests) are shut down through May 18th. 
  • Interscholastic Athletics will not take place when students are not in school. 
  • NYSPHSAA has canceled the 2020 State Regional & Championships 
  • Section 2 Executive Committee has canceled the Spring 2020 Sectional events.
  • IF & WHEN we can return to school and begin Interscholastic Athletics, NYSPHSAA will provide the guidelines as far as the # of required practice days & the length of the season. It will then be a local school district decision as to who they play, how many contests they hold, and at what levels they provide. 

 

We know this is a trying time for every single person and family in the district. We know that we have a strong community bond that will help us get through this, and we are all in this together.
