I am writing to provide you with some information regarding the upcoming Section 2 Sectional playoff events and the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) Regional and State competitions.
NYSPHSAA has notified member schools that the championships will take place as planned and will include venue, State DOH and County DOH restrictions. Currently, Girls Tennis and Winter Indoor Track State Championship facilities are requiring student-athletes to be fully vaccinated in order to participate in the indoor facilities. Each venue/county may have different restrictions for athletes and spectators that will be followed. There may be even more of these requirements coming that could apply to Section 2 sectional playoffs and NYSPHSAA Regional and State Competitions. For now, these are the ones that NYSPHSAA knows about and Executive Director Dr. Robert Zayas stated, NYSPHSAA will abide by the facility restrictions and they will not be changing venues or dates to accommodate changes.
