In accordance with RSU 73’s latest update to cancel all events that bring in the community and to suspend nonessential meetings and in regards to COVID-19, AYS has decided to cancel the final week of the girls basketball season and postpone indoor soccer and indoor field hockey until March 31st, at which time we will reevaluate and hopefully be able to resume.
Indoor Soccer and Indoor Field hockey, once resumed will continue with the same number of sessions as scheduled but days and times may vary. Spring sports (baseball, softball and tee ball) are unaffected at this time as they are not scheduled to start for a few more weeks. We are planning to carry on with these programs as scheduled.
We are very disappointed to have to have to halt our current sports programs but we feel it is in the best interest of our community to assist in limiting the potential spread of the coronavirus and keep those that are at high risk safe. We are simply placing our youth and our communities’ health and safety first.
We plan on monitoring the situation very closely as all this continues to unfold and AYS will do everything we can to stay in line with latest recommended health guidelines. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you all will understand our decision.
In the meantime we encourage everyone to stay safe and remain hopeful that we will be able to get back to normal as soon as possible.
If you have any questions with regards to basketball, soccer, or field hockey, we refer you to the commissioners of those sports. @Heather Williams-basketball @Jennahh WM Rocque- soccer @Ashley Draper -field hockey
