Dear families and athletes,

Due to recent decisions and policies made by New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHAA) by postponing high school fall sports until September 21,2020 Empire West has made the tough decision of cancelling the 2020 season. Empire West has always kept the safety of our athletes and families as priority number one. Unfortunately, with the current times we would find that task extremely daunting to guarantee.

The Empire West Board of Commissioners has agreed to continue to meet monthly as usual to discuss future ideas on how we can still be active with our athletes as well as possibly having the 2020 season take place in the Spring of 2021. So please look for future communication from your organizations.

Please stay safe and healthy.
