Less than 24 hours after Gov. Tom Wolf said at a Aug. 6 news conference that he recommended no youth sports until Jan. 1, a similar edict was added for recreational sports on the governor’s website for COVID-19 information.
The following is found under the “Recreation and Amateur Sports” section of the website: “Similar to school sports, the administration strongly recommends that youth recreational sports be postponed until at least Jan. 1, 2021. The administration is providing this strong recommendation and not an order or mandate.”
LNP|LancasterOnline has since interviewed Susan Errichetti-Frye, who is the general manager of the Palmyra-based In The Net Sports Complex, along with directors of four separate club sports organizations, three in Lancaster, one in Harrisburg.
