Updated Athletics Information - Winter and Fall 2 Sports


Governor Cuomo and the Orange County Department of Health has approved high-risk sports to commence starting February 1, 2021.  These sports include:

Basketball

Cheerleading

Football

Lacrosse

Volleyball

Wrestling


The following sports will be able to begin starting Feb 1st.:

Basketball (V)

Cheerleading(V)

Wrestling(V)


FOR THE WINTER SEASON WE WILL ONLY BE OFFERING VARSITY SPORTS. WE WILL RETURN TO ALL LEVELS FOR THE FALL 2 SEASON FOLLOWING DOH GUIDANCE.


The Orange County Department of Health is requiring a number of steps that must occur to allow these sports to begin.  These include:

  • A school board resolution or the written consent of the School Superintendent/President will be needed detailing:
    • which sports will be permitted to be played
    • which grades will be permitted to play.
  • Medical clearance for student-athletes will be required (school medical staff may provide such clearance)
  • Parents/guardians must give their informed, written consent for the NECSD code of conduct that can be found in Family ID
  • The school district must retain the original Code of Conduct or a computer-scanned version of the same and produce the same upon the request of the Commissioner of Health of any such

Additionally, the Orange County DOH indicates:

  • High-risk school sports may be suspended if the local 7- day percent positivity rolling average exceeds the State average.

As a result of this, these sports will begin off-season style workouts where there will be no sharing of equipment and no full-contact sports until all requirements are met. 

Family ID is open for Fall 2 sports on 1/31/21. Parents and athletes need to register as soon as possible if they are interested in trying out for these sports. Fall 2 sports include: Soccer (boys and girls), Cross Country (girls and boys), Football, Volleyball, Girls Swimming, Girls Tennis, and Cheerleading.


*Off-season workouts for Fall 2 sports will begin Feb. 8th  Here is the link for sports schedules: https://www.sectionixny.org/ 


Additionally, there will be a live town hall event on Thursday, February 4, 2021, at 5:30 pm to provide information to families and athletes regarding the season and the revised policies that govern student eligibility and participation.
