A message from the Director of Athletic Tom Dyer regarding the CIAC Coronavirus Updates - 

The CIAC took an unprecedented step of cancelling the rest of the winter tournament.  The Hamden Athletic Department is very saddened by this due to the fact that we had 4 teams, Boys Swim and Dive Team, Girls Basketball, Boys Basketball and Boys Hockey still in the tournament. This decision was not easy for the CIAC.  There were many factors that the CIAC used to arrive at this decision and some are very valid which they shared at the press conference.

At this point we have received no word as to what is going to happen with spring sports.  I have spoken with our Superintendent about still allowing our student athletes to train with our off-season and pre-season teams.  He has agreed that it will still be OK to do so with the current information we have. Obviously we are allowed to do this since school is still in session and no one has a group over 75 people.  The situation with spring sports is fluid and can change at any time. There is a chance there will be a delay to the start of the season but CIAC is taking a week by week approach at this time.  

The Hamden Athletic Department will always keep student’s safety as our top priority.  We will continue to monitor the situation in conjunction with our Superintendent’s Office.
