    Press Release 

    The Section IX Athletic Council approved today a resolution establishing an opening start date for athletics for all schools in Section IX.  Athletics will begin on November 30, 2020.  The fall season will follow from March to April and the spring season from May through June with exact start dates to be determined.  On September 21, 2020 off season workouts may begin with approval by each local school district.  They must follow the rules established by NYSPHSAA for any off-season workout conducted at any time during the school year and the guidelines established by the Governor and the State Department of Health.   

    This resolution was presented to the Athletic Council by the Section IX COVID-19 Task Force.  This decision was based on two main determining factors: the safety of the students and the fact that so many of our Section IX school districts are conducting all classes via remote learning.  As the COVID-19 pandemic continues Section IX in conjunction with our school districts will monitor developments and make changes when needed.
