As your Director of Athletics, it gives me great pleasure to announce that the Brooklyn/Queens Principals have voted to conduct a limited Fall Athletic Season beginning September 21st. As a parent, I understand the role that athletics plays in a teenager's life, and the importance it is for the student-athletes to get back onto the field. I also know the challenges that lie ahead for all of us in providing a safe environment for your children to compete. There will be new guidelines for each sport to follow based on guidelines from the Governor’s Office, the New York State Department of Health, The New York State Department of Education, as well as the state CHSAA. The coaches and staff members at Xaverian will work tirelessly to ensure that your son or daughter will adhere to all health standards and have the best experience possible under these current circumstances.
We look forward to seeing the kids back on the field in the coming weeks in this limited season, as coaches start meeting with anyone interested in trying out for their respective sport. We also understand the difficulties that a hybrid learning model may pose on student-athletes getting to and from practices and games. Split or missed practices throughout this limited Fall season are a reality, and we can assure you that we will work through this, along with other challenges that lie ahead, which include a very limited use of our locker rooms.
A more detailed Return to Play facts and guidelines document will be made available in the coming weeks, adopted from city and state guidelines.
Below is a list of sports that will be offered this Fall. For those students that are interested in trying out or returning to a sport, please email the coach directly for more information.
