NYSPHSAA TWEETS LOW- & MEDIUM-RISK WINTER SPORTS CAN BEGIN NOV. 30
(2020-11-10)Valley Sports Report
LATHAM, N.Y. — NYSPHSAA Executive Director Dr. Robert Zayas tweeted that low- and moderate-risk winter sports can begin play on Nov. 30.
Dr. Zayas tweet read:
“We have confirmed with state officials that low & moderate risk winter sports may begin play on Nov. 30. We continue to examine opportunities for high-risk sports to be played with strict risk minimization efforts in place. At this time, high-risk sports are not authorized. … https://twitter.com/robertzayasny/status/1325911031605063680?s=27
On Saturday, the IAC voted to re-affirm their earlier decision to postpone the start of the winter sports season to Jan. 4.
Today’s announcement by NYSPHSAA may allow low- & medium-risk sports like bowling, swimming, and indoor track & field to proceed with practices on Nov. 30, but an administrator at an IAC school told VSR “it is highly unlikely the IAC will reverse course and allow any meets or matches before Jan. 4.”
Another consideration for indoor track & field is the fact that Section IV meets have all been held at SUNY Cortland, Cornell University, or Ithaca College — all of which are closed and now hosting any sporting events.
