General Athletic Information: 

On Friday, January 22 the NYS DOH and Governor Cuomo gave permission for high risk sports to begin on February 1 - if they have their local health department’s permission. 

While Section III and local District officials are working to secure permission from our local Health Department, our league is working to determine season dates and schedules. We will open FamilyID registration and provide more details on this website in the next few days as plans are finalized. 

THE NYS Education Department has announced that student-athletes may participate in the 2020-2021 sports seasons if they have had a health exam in the previous two school years AND provide a current health history completed and signed by a parent/guardian within 30 days of the start of the season.
