Section 2 Athletics Announces Condensed 2021 Season Plan
Section 2 Athletics has announced a condensed plan for the 2021 sports calendar. The plan has been submitted to the county health departments for approval. If approval is granted high-risk sports would be able to begin as early as February 1 st.
The new plan was shared in a post shared on the Section 2 Athletics Twitter and on Section2athletics.org,.
The Section has requested approval from the County Health Departments and pending their approvals, we will offer the following schedule for our remaining condensed seasons.
Winter Season: End Date will now be March 13, 2021 (Previously 2/28/21)
Fall 2 Season: March 7, 2021 – May 1, 2021
Spring Season: May 3, 2021 – June 25, 2021
(Baseball Only will begin on April 28, 2021 due to the 10 required practice rule)
Section 2 President Joseph Sapienza stated, “This is great news for our Section 2 and all NYS student-athletes! We will now be able to achieve our goal of providing opportunities for athletic competition for all our approved sports during the 2020-2021 school year.
I think we all echo President Sapienza's statement. The lack of high school sports has left a massive vacuum in the Capital Region. Not having the nightly report from the local sports reporters or the ability to do "Section 2sday" every Tuesday on the show sucks but the real loss is obviously been the students chance to compete, bond, and grow.
