Baldwinsville parents rally for fall sports

Local News

BALDWINSVILLE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Parents in the Baldwinsville school district are blowing the whistle over school sports.

Early Monday morning, parents held a rally in front of the Baldwinsville School District Office. Their main message was to let the district know how important high school sports are to their children.

“We just wanted to make sure that we gave our support to the district. I know they’re working hard trying to make sports happen this fall, and we just want to make sure that we get our voices out there that they do know that people want their kids to play sports,” said David Huhtala, a parent of a Baldwinsville student.

Last week, Governor Cuomo released guidelines ruling out certain school sports from playing, placing them in categories of low, moderate, or high risk when it comes to the spread of the virus.

Low-risk sports, like soccer, cross country, and field hockey, are able to begin practicing on September 21 and will be able to compete. But high-risk sports, which include football, basketball, and ice hockey, will only be able to practice until further notice.
