IHS DAILY SPORTS SCHEDULE  

 
ATTENDING GAMES 


To adhere to current COVID-19 
state safety guidelines, the West Irondequoit CSD must limit capacity for all events. As a result, and until further notice, spectators for athletic events will be limited to two persons per player on each team’s roster. These events are not open to the public, including the student body.
 
FOLLOWING SAFETY GUIDANCE 


Student-athletes will give their designated admittance “passes” out for spectators and those spectators must present them to attend games. Spectators without a pass will not be admitted. Also in alignment with CDC and state guidance, the district expects/requires anyone on campus to wear a face covering, particularly when 6 feet physical distance cannot be maintained. If WICSD security personnel see spectators not following this guideline, they may be asked to put on a face covering. If that does not happen, spectators may be asked to leave. Please show mutual respect to all. Anyone who interacts with WICSD events on campus or elsewhere is subject to the rules of the district’s 
Code of Conduct.

WATCH GAMES LIVE 


WICSD has partnered with Varsity Media (VM), which works statewide with schools, to broadcast varsity soccer and field hockey games this fall. Find live stream links at VM’s YouTube page: youtube.com/varsitymedia.

ATHLETICS LETTER  

Dear IHS Families,

We have received direction from the Department of Health and the Governor’s Office that we may begin moderate and low risk sports this fall. There is a tremendous amount of guidance surrounding the safety measures that we must put in place to have kids practice and play in a safe environment. The NYSPHSAA has moved the sports season for Football, Volleyball and Fall Cheerleading to March 1, 2021. We will not offer these three sports this fall.

APPROVED TO PLAY: The NYSPHSAA has approved Field Hockey, Girls Soccer, Boys Soccer, Girls Swimming, Girls Tennis and Boys and Girls Cross Country practice and competitions. We’ll offer these programs this Fall with practices starting Sept. 28. Modified programs: Soccer, Tennis, and Cross Country. Practices begin Oct. 5, 2020. Registration for modified programs opens Sept. 18, 2020.

REGISTRATION: It's now open for Varsity/JV Fall sports as indicated above. If your child had a physical for the 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 school year, it is valid for the Fall 2020 season. We encourage families to register if they’re considering participating. Students can participate in athletics whether in the hybrid model or learning remotely this fall.

TRANSPORTATION: Families are responsible to transport athletes who are not participating in in-person classes to campus for practices or to campus to ride the bus to games. Practice times for all sports and levels are TBD. FANS: Practices and games are not open to the general public. Per NYS Department of Health Guidance: Players, coaches, officials, event personnel and only two spectators per player are allowed for contests. West Irondequoit CSD, in conjunction with Monroe County Public High School Athletic Conference and Section V Athletics will develop procedures to assure that only two spectators per player are in attendance.  These procedures will be communicated through our athletic department and coaches. The two spectators per player rule will be strictly enforced. In order to alleviate the burden on families and friends of not being able to attend games, the district is looking into live streaming contests.

COMMUNITY FORUM: To ensure the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, and spectators, we want to partner with you in the planning and re-opening of sports. Join us for a community forum at 6 PM Sept 22. The District will email a link to a Zoom Webinar the morning of the forum. We will continue to provide the most up to date information so you can make the best decisions possible for your athlete and family. Please use this form to submit your questions and/or comments prior to our meeting. Thank you for your support and patience as we navigate this new look of athletics. We’re excited to be able to provide athletics once again for our students. They instill a sense of pride in school and community and teach lifelong lessons, teamwork and self-discipline while promoting physical and emotional development of students.

Sincerely,
Kimberly A. Schon

Director of Health, Physical Education & Athletics
