Fall sports moved to spring

Posted

SULLIVAN COUNTY -- Sullivan County high school sports teams will have to wait a little bit longer to participate in the games they love.

Last week, the Section 9 Athletic Council approved a resolution establishing an opening start date of November 30 for athletics for all schools in section.

The fall season will follow from March to April and the spring season from May through June with exact start dates to be determined. On September 21, 2020 off season workouts may begin with approval by each local school district. They must follow the rules established by NYSPHSAA for any off-season workout conducted at any time during the school year and the guidelines established by the Governor and the State Department of Health.

This resolution was presented to the Athletic Council by the Section 9 COVID-19 Task Force.

According to Section 9 Athletics Executive Director Gregory P. Ransom, the decision was based on two main determining factors: the safety of the students and the fact that so many of our Section 9 school districts are conducting all classes via remote learning. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Section 9, in conjunction with our school districts, will monitor developments and make changes when needed.
