Athletic Placement Process|
Starting with the 2015-16 school year, the Athletic Placement Process (APP) will replace the Selective Classfication standards that previously allowed students to "play up." In order for your son/daughter to try out for a JV or varsity team as a 7th or 8th grader, they need to follow a process set forth by NYSED and adopted by our BOE. Please read the document below for all the details.
Athletic Placement Process Document
Step 1: Please contact the Athletic Director at least 1 month before the first scheduled practice for the season to allow enough time for the process to take shape. There are quite a few steps in the process, including special paperwork that your doctor will need to fill out and it can't be done in one week.
Step 2: You will receive an email with information to take to your child's physician to be signed off on.
Step 3: Return Parental Permission form and Appendix C (to be filled out by your physician) to the Athletic Director.
Step 4: Your child will need to chat with one of the physical education teachers to set up a time for the physical fitness tests.
Step 5: You will get a confirmation email from the Athletic Director that your child can try-out for the team.
