Fall Sports Update

posted in: Athletic News | 0
On July 16, 2020 the NYSPHSAA voted to delay the official start of the fall 2020 sports season until Monday September 21, 2020 and cancel all fall 2020 regional and state championships.
In the event that the fall sports season is unable to take place due to the ongoing Covid-19 crises then a condensed seasons plan will be implemented.  This plan would entail the following, with the stipulated dates being tentative.
Season I (Winter Sports) from January 4 – March 13, 2021.
The sports impacting Greenport athletes would include boys and girls basketball, bowling, indoor track and competitive cheer.  Wrestling is categorized as high risk and would be moved to a later date.
Season II (Fall Sports) from March 1 – May 8, 2021.
The sports impacting Greenport athletes would include boys and girls soccer, girls volleyball and field hockey.
Season III (Spring Sports) from April 5 – June 12, 2021.
The sports impacting Greenport athletes would include boys and girls soccer, lacrosse, tennis and track.  Additional sports would include baseball, softball and golf.
The NYSPHSAA recognizes that the starting and ending dates for seasons II and III overlap and if the need arises can and will make adjustments and accommodations.
This is a challenging time for everyone as the state and school districts grapple with the decision to reopen safely and responsibly.  Please view the district webpage using the athletics tab or http://gpoathletics.weebly.com/ for additional information as it becomes available.
