    Athletic Information for Fall 2020 - Update #4 (September 14th)

    Dear Tiger Families,                                                                                                                                                                                              

    The purpose of this letter is to provide you with follow up information regarding the Fall 2020 Interscholastic Athletics Season grades 7-12.

    As you know, Section One has adopted the Fall 2020 season start date for Low Risk and Moderate Risk Sports September 29th for Varsity and JV Sports Only. Volleyball, a high risk sport has been moved to the Fall 2 Season beginning on March 1st. Volleyball student athletes will be permitted to play 4 sports during the 20-21 school year due to the pandemic. Girls Swimming is still undecided due to lack of availability of pools. As of today, Modified Sports is still under review by Section One. We will communicate via email once a decision has been made.

    The date for Fall Sport Registration (Cross Country, Field Hockey, Boys and Girls Soccer and Girls Tennis) via Family ID began on September 5th with an end date of September 19th for Varsity and JV sports only at this time. If you haven’t done so already, please make sure you have registered by September 19th. Please visit the athletics website for fall sport registration information.

    The Athletic Department will be hosting a VIRTUAL Fall Sports Athletic Open House on Wednesday, September 23rd beginning at 5:00pm for all Varsity and JV Fall athletes, parents and coaches. 

    There will be a brief presentation by myself regarding the Fall sports season and what it entails while meeting the COVID 19 guidelines. Shortly after, there will be separate virtual meetings set up for the coaches to meet with your teams individually. These links will be sent in an e-mail shortly. This is only for Varsity and JV Student Athletes, not Modified.

    We continue to work on plans that align to current guidance from the New York State Education Department, the CDC and the Department of Health as well as the NYSPHSAA Return to Play Guidelines.

    We continue to focus on providing our student athletes the best educational opportunities available. Our community plays a role in sustaining an athletics program. Please continue to follow current practices to mitigate the impact of COVID-19.
