Start of Winter Indoor Track Postponed

NEW YORK — The NYSPHSAA Section 2 Executive Committee is pushing the official start date for Indoor Track back to January 4, 2021.

Low/moderate risk sports will begin on December 14, and while Indoor Track is considered low-risk, questions and concerns have been raised regarding the ability to run the sport effectively, efficiently and in a safe manner. 

Currently, Section 2 has no available facilities that can host an Indoor Track meet. In addition, the gathering size limitations would require the components of a meet to be divided up into multiple days and perhaps, multiple sites. 

There are hopes that the delayed start will provide the additional time needed to allow for changes in facility acquisition or availability, additional planning and clarification regarding potential virtual or pared-down competitions.

High-risk sports are scheduled to begin on January 4, 2021, pending approval from The NYSDOH and NYSPHSAA. If they do not have approval to compete, that start date will be revisited. 

If Winter sports need to be cancelled, it is likely there will not be additional opportunities made available, although this decision will be made at that time, should it become necessary.

Fall 2 sports are tentatively scheduled to run March 1 through April 30, and Spring sports tentatively scheduled to run from May 1 through June 30.
