NYSPHSAA Delays Start of Winter Season for High-Risk Sports

The New York State Public High School Athletic Association announced it is delaying the start of high-risk winter sports–basketball, hockey, competitive cheer and wrestling–to Jan. 4.

Our Lady of Lourdes, Albertus Magnus, John S. Burke and The Ursuline School are Catholic schools from the archdiocese competing in the NYSPHSAA.

“The NYSPHSAA membership has expressed concerns pertaining to the increase in infection rates,” said Dr. Robert Zayas, NYSPHSAA executive director, in a release from the NYSPHSAA. “Minimizing risk and exposure to COVID-19 is a top priority of the association.  We continue to make these types of decisions based upon readily available information and communication with state officials.”

Low- and moderate-risk winter sports–gymnastics, indoor track, skiing, swimming and diving, and bowling–will be allowed to start practice Nov. 30. Competitive games and meets may begin once the student-athletes have participated in the required number of practices.
