CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS LEADERS TO ANNOUNCE LATEST EFFORTS TO START HIGH-RISK SPORTS SEASON
Brooklyn – Dominick Vulpis, Executive Director of the Catholic High School Athletic Association for the Diocese of Brooklyn, along with CHSAA officials of the Archdiocese of New York, will announce the latest efforts in their pursuit to safely reinstate high-risk high school sports competition, including football and volleyball, in New York City this school year, at a press conference to be held via Zoom tomorrow, Thursday, February 25, 2021, at Noon.
To date, Mayor Bill DeBlasio and Health Commissioner Dr. David Chokshi have been unresponsive to requests seeking approval to begin the NYC sports season that was slated to begin on March 1. The surrounding counties of Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester, with whom New York City Catholic high schools compete, have received the necessary permission to begin their seasons.
