Ƶ Interscholastic Athletic Program
MISSION STATEMENT

Foster the quest for excellence by creating an educational and competitive experience within an atmosphere of sportsmanship. Successful programs develop individual and team potential by promoting high standards of competence, character, civility, and citizenship, the 4 C’s from the NYSED Educational Frameworks for Athletics.

 

PHILOSOPHY

Interscholastic athletics in the Ƶ School Ƶ is an outgrowth of our physical education and health program and, therefore, is an integral part of the district’s total educational program. The interscholastic competitive environment provides an opportunity for our participants to learn positive life skills and values. This is accomplished through the implementation of the Educational Framework for Interscholastic Athletic Programs promoted through the New York Sate Education Department. The program promotes the four “C’s” as stated below:

Competence

A student athlete in a quality program is competent in terms of: Skill Development, Knowledge of the Game/Strategies, Fitness/Conditioning/Healthy Behaviors

Character

A student in a quality program demonstrates:Responsibility, Accountability, Dedication, Trustworthiness/fair Play, Self Control

Civility

A student athlete in a quality program demonstrates civility towards others, showing:Respect, Caring, Fairness

Citizenship

A student athlete in a quality program demonstrates citizenship through actions showing evidence of: Loyalty/Commitment, Teamwork, Role Modeling

The Ƶ interscholastic athletic program offers a wide variety of individual and team sports. The experience begins with a modified four-sport season program, provided for middle school seventh and eighth grade students, progressing to a three-sport season high school program, which includes opportunities for participation in junior varsity programs and culminates with a varsity level experience for the elite athlete.
