During a live stream discussion on Sept. 15, the Arkport-Canasagera Athletic Department discussed the latest news on the 2020-21 fall athletics season.  View a recording of the live stream here, or read below for highlights from the meeting:

  • Soccer and cross country practice will begin on Sept. 21. Students must attend ten practices in order to be eligible to compete in a game or meet.
  • Students who are learning remotely will be asked to drive to practice on their own or get a ride from their parent or guardian. The district does not have the capacity to transport remote learners to and from practice.
  • Winter sports practice is currently scheduled to begin Nov. 30.
  • Volleyball practice is currently scheduled to begin March 1.
  • Coaches and students will be asked to do the following:
    • wear masks, indoors and outdoors;
    • keep an appropriate social distance at all times;
    • mark their water bottles with their name; and
    • avoid giving high fives, hugs or fist bumps.
  • Parents and spectators will be asked to do the following:
    • wear masks, indoors and outdoors;
    • keep an appropriate social distance at all times; and
    • disinfect their child’s personal equipment after each practice, game or meet.
  • The latest New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) guidance states that school sporting event spectators must be limited to two people per player. However; in accordance with the Governor’s office and the Steuben County Department of Health, mass gatherings that exceed 50 people are prohibited. An average soccer game or cross country meet has 40-44 student-athletes,  two coaches and two referees. In order to stay under the state and the county’s current 50-person limit, the district would not be able to allow two spectators per player. At this time, we plan on following the county’s guidance until we receive additional clarification.  In the event that spectators are not allowed, the district will explore the possibility of streaming games.
  • In the event that senior-athlete recognition nights cannot take place in person, the district will find another way to honor our senior-athletes.
