The official start date for the winter sports season is still being determined by NYSPHSAA. However, the earliest start date would be Nov. 30 for any sport. Please be aware that NYSPHSAA is not extending sports physicals through the winter season. All sports physicals are valid for 12 months from the date of the exam. If your child’s physical is expiring on or after Nov. 30, 2020, they will need to have an updated physical by their family physician before they can be cleared to participate in a winter sport.
