I understand that many student-athletes, parents and coaches have been eagerly anticipating winter sports registration and ultimately the start of the winter season. The NYSPHSAA, Section 2 and the Suburban Council have been working tirelessly to put together a winter season that has the health and safety of our student-athletes and coaches as our top priority.
As of today only low and moderate risk sports are allowed to begin on November 30th. That includes boys bowling and girls bowling. Indoor track & field falls into this category as well however at this time there are no facilities in Section 2 available to host competitions. Boys basketball, girls basketball, wrestling, competitive cheerleading, and ice hockey are all considered high risk sports and as of today we have not received guidance from Governor Cuomo or the NYSPHSAA regarding their status.
Registration for boys bowling and girls bowling onlyis now open. Once high risk sports have been authorized to begin we will reopen registration for those sports. All bowlers must have their parent/guardian complete the Winter 2020-21 Registratio
nForm (https://www.familyid.com/ averill-park-central-school- district-athletic-department) by Monday, Nov. 16th if they wish to participate. Please register asap and adhere to the deadline. Student-athletes must have a current health physical (that is valid for the entire upcoming season) on file prior to the start of the season. Physicals are good for a period of 12 months. Student-athletes should have their physical performed by their primary care provider. If this is not possible, please contact the APHS or AMS Health Office.
Please know that we have worked, and will continue to work to give our student-athletes the best possible athletic experience this winter. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (674-7010).
