This site will become your source for all information related to our athletic program. After the initial launch we will continue to add important information and make updates on a seasonal basis.
Our athletic program provides opportunities for participation, growth and character development. The participation goals of our program strive to promote healthy competition that upholds the highest levels of sportsmanship and respect. Although the nature of athletic competition is to strive for victory, the number of victories is only one criterion when determining a season’s success. The development of teamwork, demonstrated sportsmanship, self-discipline and dedication are some of the greater outcomes that are achieved during a successful season.
When your child chooses to participate in one of our athletic programs, they will have to commit themselves to certain responsibilities and obligations. Making such a commitment helps to nurture integrity, pride, loyalty and overall character.
The success of our athletic program will be the result of all stakeholders working together to achieve a common goal of victory with honor and respect. Everyone has a role: Board of Education, district and school administration, director of athletics, coaches, the athletic staff, athletes, parents. When we are all positive role models of sportsmanship, we will be making the greatest contribution we can to the success of our athletic program and the success of our children.
The Byram Hills athletic program is governed by the Commissioner of Education’s basic code for extra-class activities and the Byram Hills code of student behavior. We are a member of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association in Section 1 and a member of Conference 2.
Hopefully this website will be able to answer all your questions about our program. I look forward to seeing you at the games.
Rob Castagna, Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics
