  • Update on Return to Play Rules.

    Good Morning,

         This just came down from the State:

    "Please send out the following adjustments to the NYSPHSAA return to play guidelines:

    1) Players MAY leave the field during the 2 minute hydration / mask break to get their water bottles.  (NYSPHSAA does not want teammates touching each other's equipment)

    2) If both coaches agree not to have the 2 minute hydration / mask break,  the break may be eliminated.

    Thanks & stay healthy,

    Scott Reynolds, NYSCOS Rules Interpreter"


    Thank you
