Section 2 Winter Low/Moderate Risk Sports (bowling, boys swim) to begin on December 14, 2020. High-Risk Sports (basketball, wrestling, cheerleading) official start date will be on December 14, 2020, pending approval from the New York State Department of Health for competition. If we do not have the approval to compete, that official start date will be pushed to January 4, 2021, still pending approval to compete. The Section 2 Executive Committee, with input from NYSDOH, NYSED, NYSPHSAA, School Administrators, Athletic Directors, Sport Coordinators, and Section 2 Sports Officials, has made the decision to begin our Winter Sports season on December 14th, 2020 in accordance with the Governor’s & NYSDOH approvals. The High-Risk sports will not be given the approval to start until NYSDOH approves them for competition.
In addition, the Western Athletic Conference has decided that only JV and varsity level competition will take place this season and that those contests will start in January. We anticipate opening winter sports online registration to high school students on November 30th.
