After an extensive and baffling suspension, city high school sports — including football — will at long last resume one month from now, authorities said Monday.
The Department of Education will permit all sports to continue strength and molding exercises one month from now and start competitive play in May.
To help compensate for some recent setbacks, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that seasons will reach out into the summer.
“We’re bringing back school sports,” Hizzoner said. “We will bring back all sports with exacting wellbeing conventions.”
De Blasio said that athletic exercises will be moved outside at whatever point conceivable.
“We will expand our seasons into the summer,” he said. “We will go right to August. We will give kids who passed up sports an opportunity to make up for lost time and have a vastly improved encounter.”
Masks and week by week testing will be required and no onlookers will be allowed at occasions.
“We need to understand that this is for the kids. Despite the fact that I was for quite a long time a sports parent,” he said. “I adored going to the games. This isn’t that sort of circumstance since we can’t have huge groups”
City coaches, kids, and parents have since quite a while ago griped that there has been little direction offered concerning the inevitable return of public high school sports since the pandemic grabbed hold.
