NYSPHSAA News: Students selecting full remote education are eligible to participate in interscholastic athletics

The following interpretation is provided pertaining to students who will receive remote only education during the 2020-2021 school year in response to the COVID-19 crisis. 

The New York State Education Department regulations (135.4 Physical Education) state: (c) Program Plans, E, iii, 

“(2) Registration. A pupil shall be eligible for interschool competition or inclusive athletic activities in a sport during a semester, provided that he is a bona fide student, enrolled during the first 15 school days of such semester, is registered in the equivalent of three regular courses, is meeting the physical education requirement, and has been in regular attendance 80 percent of the school time, bona fide absence caused by personal illness excepted.” 

In discussions with representatives from the New York State Education Department, the above regulation provides a student with the opportunity to participate in interscholastic athletics if they are receiving credit for three courses and physical education, regardless of the education platform utilized by the school district (i.e. remote only, hybrid, etc.). Students who opt for a remote only education because of the COVID-19 crisis would be eligible for interscholastic athletics (when permitted) if they meet the Bona Fide student regulation above. Please note, as of today, August 10, 2020, interscholastic athletics continue to be prohibited by state officials.

Frequently Asked Questions About Modified (Middle School) Sports

Who can participate in Modified Sports?

This program is available to all Monroe-Woodbury seventh and eighth grade students.

What does “Modified” mean?

Is there “cutting” in Modified Sports?

The goal of Modified Athletics is maximum participation. However, there are times that the number of students trying out exceeds our coaching staff’s ability to safely supervise and instruct. In this situation, reducing team size may be necessary.

What type of time commitment is involved in Modified Sports?

Team practices are usually held five days a week. It is the expectation that students attend every practice. Practice sessions begin immediately after school and students are released in time to ride the 5:00 pm late bus. Please note that there is no 5:00 pm bus on Fridays. Furthermore, on days of competitions, students will participate later than 5:00 pm. Parents or guardians are responsible for transportation on those days.

When does each season begin?

Sports seasons during the 2020-2021 school year are dependent on NYS Athletics and Section 9 Athletics schedules.

What steps need to be taken in order to be eligible to participate?

To participate in a Monroe-Woodbury Interscholastic team at the Modified, Junior Varsity or Varsity level, each student must have a physical exam within the last 12 months on file in the Health Office. The following documents are also required:

  • Parent/Guardian Sports Permission/Medical Update
  • NY Student Physical Exam Form
  • Interscholastic Sports Parent/Student Agreement (Code of Conduct)

All forms can be found on our school website: https://www.mw.k12.ny.us/forms/#athletics-docs

Each team will have an interest meeting for prospective athletes prior to the start of the season. It is important for students to stay up to date on the daily information communicated via middle school announcements. Should your child make the team, a parent meeting will be held and sport specific information will be shared by the coaches.

What is Selection Classification (APP)?

The Advanced Placement Process is used to determine a student-athlete’s readiness to compete at a higher level of competition. The purpose of this program is to permit the accelerated student-athlete the opportunity to participate safely at a higher level of competition (high school team). In order for a 7th or 8th grader to try out for a high school team at Monroe-Woodbury, the student must first be recommended by the head coach of the program. In making this recommendation, we not only assess the athlete’s skill development but his/her social-emotional maturity level as well. If approved for the APP process, the student will undergo a maturity screening and a physical fitness test to determine if he/she is eligible to try out.

At Monroe-Woodbury we make every effort to have middle school students participate at the Modified level whenever possible. Since the middle school day ends an hour later than the high school, having 7th and 8th graders on high school teams presents logistical difficulties.

Where can I Find More Information?

Our school website will continue to be updated with information regarding our athletic programs.
