Winter athletic season faces another delay

The winter sports season has been delayed to at least January 19, 2021, by Section IX. The letter below from Liberty’s Athletic director, Peter Bianco, is being sent to all high school and middle school students.

The entire coaching staff at Liberty wants you to know that we are doing our best to see that there is a winter sports season. We know how important this is to so many of our students. Contact your coaches to find out about off-season workouts or if you have any questions.

Dear Liberty Community,

I want to take a moment and say thank you for all your patience and understanding as information continues to evolve in regards to the start of Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Modified Athletics for this school year.

As always, our first and foremost priority is to ensure the safety of our student athletes at Liberty. Athletics had been anticipated to start on November 30, 2020 with Low and Moderate Risk Sports, however, as the present data and projections surrounding COVID-19 continue to evolve,
Orange County Interscholastic Athletic Association (OCIAA) has decided to put all official Athletic participation on hold until at least January 19, 2021.

There has been a noticeable uptick in COVID 19 cases in all of our communities, which led OCIAA to make this determination. Please note that this decision was a difficult one, but deemed necessary as new data becomes available.

Off-season workouts will still be available to Liberty students wishing to be involved. Coaches have worked hard to create a safe environment to keep our students at Liberty active through this time of uncertainty.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy your holiday and have a pleasant Thanksgiving.


Yours in Sport,

Peter Bianco, CAA
Athletic Director
