The NYSPHSAA COVID-19 Task Force has met three times in the past two months (June 10th, June 30th and July 16th). The NYSPHSAA has postponed the start of the Fall sports season to September 21st and canceled the Fall 2020 Regional and State Championship events in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
NYSPHSAA’s Executive Director, Dr. Robert Zayas, continues to work with state officials, the NYSPHSAA COVID-19 Task Force, NYSPHSAA’s Officers and the 11 Section Executive Directors on interscholastic athletic participation for the 2020-2021 school year; it is the goal to preserve all athletic seasons for the 562,000 student-athletes who annually participate.
The NYSPHSAA is awaiting additional guidance from state officials to determine when interscholastic athletics may resume.
Physicals for Sports
New Information from NYSED
“Permit student athletes to participate in the fall 2020 sports season if they have previously had a health examination for school attendance in the 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 school years and provide a health history completed (Sample Recommended NYSED Interval Health History for Athletics) and signed by the parent/guardian within 30 days of the start of the season. Student athletes who have not previously had a health examination must still obtain a health examination prior to participation in the fall 2020 sports season. At this time, students should plan to obtain the required health examination prior to participation in the winter or spring 2020-21 seasons, although that may change depending on the status of COVID-19 in the fall. The Department will provide updated information as needed”
West Valley Athletics is honored to be partnering with Springville-Griffith Institute to provide our students with athletic participation opportunities.
