BROOKLINE, MA – Earlier this week, the Brookline Health Commissioner announced that all school sports are expected to cease until February due to the pandemic. On Wednesday, he added non-school recreational sports to the temporary ban.
The break, effective immediately, includes all practices, games, scrums and tournaments and applies to public and private schools in the city, as well as public and private recreational sports programs.
The ordinance applies to organized sports scheduled in both Massachusetts and out of state before Feb. 1, according to Brookline Health Commissioner Swannie Jett.
A first order of athletics interruption was limited to school programs.
LeRoy Watkins is a part owner of Viking Sports, a sports entertainment company headquartered at the corner of Route 9 and Cypress Street, providing services for children to adults throughout the state.
Watkins said when he learned of the order, he sent a note to the Brookline families served by his company.
