New York City Public Schools are scheduled to open to students for in-school learning, but the NYC high school sports league, PSAL, will remain postponed. See the official message from the PSAL below.
On Monday, August 23, 2020, Governor Cuomo announced that certain lower-risk, school-sponsored sports in all regions may begin to practice and play beginning September 21st. While this is an important step toward being able to return to interscholastic sports, there are several factors PSAL must consider in conjunction with NYCDOE leadership, government officials, and health experts to determine how to ensure our students and community members are kept safe.
Due to the current conditions of New York City and our continued commitment to prioritize student safety while we prepare for school opening, the PSAL fall season continues to be postponed until further notice.
We will provide an update as soon as additional information is available. Please continue to direct any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org
