ILION, NY - Central Valley Academy will be resuming some high-risk sports starting next week.
That announcement from Superintendent Jeremy Rich during Wednesday’s school board meeting.
Rich says that girls and boys basketball will begin on Monday, but there will be some notable changes.
For starters, their opponents will change. The Tri-Valley League granted CVA a release from the league for this year so they could focus on playing teams closer to home.
The biggest change though - no spectators.
But, Rich says, the school has a plan in place so fans can still view the games.
"One of the things that we did to be proactive is to put cameras in our gym. We've been working on that for a long time and we have them up and functional. We will be able to live-stream those games at the very least. Parents will be able to sit home, log in, and our big gym will be, 100% of the competition will come out of the big gym so parents can see that."
In order to resume these high-risk sports, the school had to come up with a comprehensive covid safe plan that was approved by the school board, as well as the department of health.
