It appears as if the start of high-risk high school winter sports will be delayed again in New York State due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The start of high-risk winter sports was pushed back to Jan. 4 and it looks like it may be pushed back further. High-risk winter sports are basketball, wrestling, hockey and competitive cheer.
The following is a statement from Dr. Robert Zayas, executive director for the New York State Public High School Athletic Association on Wednesday via his Twitter account:
“At this time there is no definitive timeline for authorization of high risk sports to resume competition. We’ll continue working with state officials & our member schools to determine when it is safe to compete. Low/ moderate sports can begin as previously authorized by the state.”
