Governor Andrew Cuomo gave some high school sports the go ahead for next month, while keeping other sports as “practice-only” sports.
At a news briefing Monday morning, Cuomo said lower-risk sports such as tennis, soccer, cross country, field hockey, and swimming can begin competing on September 21 in all regions. Teams will not be allowed to travel, practice, or play outside of their region or contiguous counties until October.
Higher-risk sports, including football, wrestling, rugby, and ice hockey, will be allowed to practice, but are not yet authorized to play.
We will wait on guidance from @NYSPHSAA and @SecVAthletics on what the practice guidelines are. pic.twitter.com/8wMdYekLMk
