Fall Sports Update

Fall Sports Update
SportsEast Rochester Athletic Families,

Last night, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) announced that high-contact fall sports will be postponed until the spring. This includes football, volleyball and potentially competitive cheer. The revised season for football, volleyball and fall competitive cheer will be known as “Fall Sports Season II” and may officially begin practices on March 1, 2021.

Low and moderate-risk fall sports practices will begin on September 21, 2020. Regular season games can begin for low and moderate-risk fall sports once student-athletes have participated in the 10 required practices as per NYSPHSAA bylaws. The following fall sports will begin at ER on September 21: Girls Varsity Field Hockey, Girls Varsity Tennis, Girls Varsity Soccer, Girls Modified Soccer, Boys Varsity Soccer and Boys Modified Soccer.

Section V has a committee beginning plans on a new schedule for the adjusted spring season.

We will keep you updated as plans evolve throughout the next few weeks. Thank you for your patience as the district determines our best course of action for our students.
