The decision by Section VIII Athletics to postpone fall sports until January has been controversial to say the least. Based on feedback that Section VIII is receiving, they are meeting to reopen the discussion on this topic and determine if in fact low-risk sports can begin Sept. 21. The state has authorized these low-risk sports to begin.
In addition, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHAA) announced on Sept. 9 that football, volleyball and competition cheer, which are not in the low-risk category, would be delayed until March 1.
We will keep you updated on any announcements we receive from Section VIII regarding their decision on low-risk sports.
