NYWAY States (Canceled)
March 14, 2020


The NYWAY State Championships, originally scheduled at The College at Brockport, Mar 14-15, 2020, has been canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Below is the communication put out by NYWAY.

To the NYWAY Community,

We understand the deep concern that the COVID-19 outbreak has caused and for the last several weeks NYWAY has been monitoring the situation and working closely with the administration at SUNY Brockport to determine the safest and most appropriate course of action.

As you are aware, this situation has been rapidly changing. Yesterday afternoon, we were assured by SUNY Brockport officials that our State Championship was still to run as planned. As of 5:45 pm this afternoon, 2020 NYWAY State Championship has been canceled by SUNY Brockport per communication with Gov. Andrew Cuomo, The College at Brockport and New York Youth Wrestling Association for Youth.

We respect and fully support their decision as a measure to safeguard the health of our Athletes, State, and local communities.

We ask for your patience as we continue to work on a contingency plan for our State Championship Wrestling Tournament. We understand the impact this has on our wrestling community. We will continue to provide updates on Facebook and the NYWAY website (www.nyway.org) as we continue to work with officials in navigating this situation.

Thank you for your continued support. All emails will be addressed as they are received.
