As school reopening plans continue to be finalized, Gov. Cuomo announced certain fall sports can begin practices on Sept. 21.
‘Low risk’ sports to return to game play this fall; additional guidance will follow later this week
But, Minisink Valley and all New York State school districts continue to await athletic guidance and safety protocols from the governor’s office.
In the meantime, the district has opened the FamilyID registration portal to best prepare for the upcoming season.
Fall 2020 online registration dates:
Varsity/JV/Modified Sports: Friday, Aug. 21 through Monday, Sept. 21
Start dates: Practice/tryouts:
High school and middle school: Monday Sept. 21
Athletes must have a physical exam on file in the nurse’s office prior to the start of the season. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and potential for limited opportunities for sports physicals with pediatricians this summer, the New York State Education Department has determined sport physicals are now valid (for the fall 2019 athletic season only) if they are dated Aug. 1, 2018 or later.
Parents must register their child for Fall Sports via the FamilyID website now and complete the updated Health Interval Forms online. Building nurses will contact parents directly via email if additional information is required for medical clearance.
Important reminder: Registration is take place pending final New York State guidance. Please know that final guidance and mandates will determine if or how Fall 2020 sports, as announced by Gov. Cuomo, will take place.
