Athletes can practice, but the football season remains canceled. Dance teams will also not be allowed to compete
MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — All fall sports in Middletown can continue practicing starting today, even football. But, when it comes to competitions, some teams are limited.
The Board of Education is trying to keep those athletes active even though the Connecticut Interscholastic Atheltic Conference has canceled full-contact 11 v 11 football across the state.
Middletown’s BOE met virtually Tuesday night to discuss the fall sports season, talking about the benefits sports have on children. They also discussed how organized sports through the school are the safest option right now due to the precautions that are being taken, and the ability to contact trace if anyone were to get sick.
