Winter Sports Season Postponed
On Friday December 11th, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association announced the cancellation of the 2021 Winter State Championships and the postponement of winter high-risk sports (basketball & ice hockey) until authorization is given by the appropriate state government officials.
 
Low-moderate risk sports were allowed to begin on November 30th. These sports include winter track & field and boys swimming. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Section 10 was unable to secure a college venue in which to hold the track meets thus canceling that season. The boys swimming merger has yet to receive approval from the Canton Central School Board of Education. The BOE may revisit the topic at their January 7th meeting. 
 
Please contact the athletic office with any questions.

  • ImPACT Concussion Testing -ImPACT 2005 is a user-friendly, Windows-based computer program that can be administered by a team coach, athletic trainer or physician with minimal training. Reaction time is reliably measured to one hundredth of a second across individual test modules (10 modules total) and allows for an assessment of processing speed as the player fatigues. The test battery consists of a near infinite number of alternate forms by randomly varying the stimulus array for each administration. This feature was built in to the program to minimize the "practice effects" that have limited the usefulness of more traditional neurocognitive tests. ImPACT takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. The program measures multiple aspects of cognitive functioning in athletes.
