From the Athletic Office (Updated 12/16)

Outline below is the most up to date information regarding winter sports season and our plan:

As of now, the Governor's Office, NYSED, NYSDOH, NYSPHSAA, and Section One Athletics have approved the start of the following low/moderate risk sports:
  • Varsity Boys & Girls Bowling, Varsity Gymnastics, Varsity Boys & Girl's Ski, Varsity Boys Swim & Dive and Winter/Indoor Track & Field.
  • Start date:  Monday, January 11th.
All high-risk sports have been postponed until authorization is granted by state officials.  This includes the sports of Boys' & Girls' Varsity, JV, and Freshman Basketball, Varsity Ice Hockey and Varsity & JV Wrestling.  Modified sports and the Athletic Placement Process (APP) remain on pause through the winter season.  In addition, beginning Monday, January 11th, we will be expanding our strength & conditioning program to provide students with training opportunities throughout the winter season.  
 
Due to the change in start dates from November 30th to January 11th, we must ask you to re-register on Final Forms for the sports of bowling, gymnastics, ski, and winter/indoor track & field. 
To register, go to finalforms.com.  Click on FinalForms Login and type in Katonah Lewisboro.
 
We will not be registering for the Basketball, Ice Hockey, or Wrestling until those sports have been cleared to compete by state officials.    As we enter the new year with a level of uncertainty about the holiday seasons impact on the spread of the virus please keep in mind that all the above is subject to change.  
 
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
 
Stay Safe and Happy Holidays

Director of Athletics

Spectator Policy

LINK FOR JOHN JAY GAMES: 

https://events.locallive.tv/school/john-jay-hs

             

Baseball, Lacrosse, Softball, and Tennis

  • We will permit up to 200 spectators per sport at home contests. Away contests should continue to follow the 2 spectator per athlete guideline due to the fact that the host school can be more restrictive.

Track & Field

  • We will continue with the 2 spectator per participant, at dual meets only, due to the large rosters associated with Track & Field that could exceed the 200 spectator limit.
  • Multi-Team meets are not permitting spectators to attend due to the large number of athletes participating on each team’s roster. John Jay events will be livestreamed on Local Live.

Screening:

  • We will no longer require spectators to complete a health screener or temperature check prior to entering the outdoor facility. We do ask that if you answer “Yes” to any of the questions on the attached screener document on the day of the game or even that you refrain from attending in an effort to keep our school community safe.

We will continue to require all spectators to wear a face covering over their mouth and nose at all times and ask that you practice appropriate social distancing.

Thank you for your cooperation - Go Wolves!

  

Sports Registration

We are pleased to announce that the John Jay Athletic Department has partnered with Final Forms as the new platform for registering students for sports.

FinalForms allows you to complete and sign athletic participation forms for your child.  FinalForms stores and saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year which means you never need to enter the same information twice!  FinalForms also pre-populates information, wherever possible, to save time!   Click on Parent Playbook (attached) to get started in FinalForms.  If you require support during the registration process, scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Use Support”.   Register at:  https://katonahlewisboro-ny.finalforms.com/ and follow the prompts to create your account and get started!
