 Athletics will participate in practices and games under the Section IX Fall 2021 COVID-19 Protocol Guidelines. The Section IX Protocol Committee has developed a set of guidelines for the Fall 2021 season. These guidelines are subject to change based on any future mandates from the Governor, the State Department of Health, the local County Departments of Health, the State Education Department or the NYSPHSAA. The guidelines are as follows:  Section IX will conduct the fall 2021 season in all sports.

 Indoor sports of Volleyball are required to wear masks. This includes players, coaches, site personnel and officials. Indoor sports will allow spectators. Spectators will be required to wear masks.

Section IX reminds all schools to follow social distancing and all other mitigating protocols to keep all participants as safe as possible.

We must maintain a continuous log of attendance for every person, including students, faculty, staff, contractor, and visitors, who may have close contact with other individuals on our campuses.

The District will consider the range of mitigation measures available to maximize the safety of all people (players, coaches, spectators), including vaccination, screening testing, and if necessary, canceling all sports and extracurricular activities in counties with high transmission.

Outdoor sports will not require masks for players, coaches, site personnel and officials.  

Outdoor sports will allow spectators with no mask requirements.

Congratulations Athletes!

The Athletic department and our Athletic Director, Coach Panek would like to congratulate Reid Wogan, our Varsity Boys Soccer Goalie, Olivia Bonelli, our Varsity Field Hockey Forward and Abigail Chorzempa one of our standout Swimmers on being nominated and chosen as the September Athletes of the Month. They will receive a free pizza gift certificate from Benny’s Pizzeria.
