The section 9 Athletic council voted today to approve the Section 9 task force recommendation. There has been a lot of information circulating in the media in regards to Athletics and this correspondence is meant to clarify and outline how we are going to proceed. As with all decisions regarding education and the pandemic, it is subject to change. Our Administration from Superintendent Reinhardt on down have been incredibly supportive. They want our student-athletes back and playing. The recommendation that was approved today allows for three Sports seasons starting with the Winter season on November 30th. We are hoping that the High-risk sports as determined by NYS are approved by then. Basketball and Wrestling are in this category. Bowling is not considered high risk. If they are approved then we will have a 10-week season-ending mid-late February. The Section will schedule the abbreviated season based on geography as they want to decrease travel time. Once the Winter season ends the second season (Fall) would begin. The tentative start date for the Fall season is March 1st. Soccer, Cross Country, Tennis, and Golf are considered low risk and are approved. Football, Volleyball, and Competitive Cheer are considered high risk and NYS still has to approve them. The assumption is that they will be approved by the start date. The following is outlying of the seasons in chronological order and approximate dates.
Winter season - Boy's and Girl's Basketball, Wrestling and Bowling - Start date November 30th ending mid-February (Spirit Cheerleading might be added).
Fall season - Football, Boy's and Girl's Soccer, Cross Country, Golf, Girl's Tennis, Volleyball, Cheerleading - Estimated start date March 1st - Estimated end date - April 30th
Spring season - Baseball, Softball, Boy's and Girl's Lacrosse, Spring Track, Boy's Tennis - Estimated start date - May 1st - Estimated end date - June 26th
There are still a number of issues to be resolved They include:
1. Will NYS approve the high-risk sports
2. Will we and the Section offer all three levels (Modified/JV and Varsity)
3. If we offer only the Varsity level could we have larger teams and increased coaches per team
4. Will a sport be moved out of its normal season (e.g. Golf from Fall to Spring)
I want to thank everyone in advance for your cooperation. Hopefully, we will return to normalcy soon.
