Section X moving forward with shortened fall sports season; contact sports delayed
The 24 school districts in Section X made a collective decision to move forward with an abbreviated fall sports season starting as early as Sept. 21.
Per Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s orders, districts are authorized to play low or moderate risk sports only at this time. This will include the sports of soccer and cross-country for the fall 2020 season.Junior varsity and modified teams will be considered one week after the varsity start up. High-risk sports such as football, volleyball, and spirit cheer will be considered for a make-up season in the spring.
Student athletes and their families rallied Monday in downtown Canton to express their support of playing low to moderate risk sports this fall.
Right now, Massena Central cannot offer sports as their in-person instruction was delayed until October.
