TRENTON, NJ -- In a highly anticipated announcement, Gov. Phil Murphy said Wednesday at his COVID-19 press briefing that indoor sports may resume on Saturday, January 2, 2021, with safety protocols in place. However, the regional suspension of interstate youth hockey competitions will continue through at least January 31.

“NJSIAA welcomes the governor’s announcement and continued support, and looks forward to the beginning of the indoor, winter, scholastic sports season – specifically, NJSIAA season 2," NJSIAA, the governing body for high school sports, said in a statement.

"We know that 2021 will bring better days, but we’re going to have to greet the new year on the same war footing with which we’re ending 2020: avoid large gatherings, practice social distancing, mask up, stay safe," Murphy continued.
