Dear Parent/Guardian and Student Athletes,
It is the basic philosophy of the Mahopac Central School District to prepare our students to become productive and contributing citizens of our community and society. We believe that a comprehensive program of student activities is vital to the educational development of our students. The athletic program is an extension of this philosophy.
The athletic program at Mahopac is an integral part of the school’s educational program. Interscholastic competition provides students with physical, mental and emotional experiences, which will benefit not only the individual but the school and community as well. Participants have an opportunity to acquire qualities of total fitness, self-discipline, loyalty, and a sincere devotion to a cause greater than themselves, within a safe and healthy environment. Winning will always be kept in proper perspective at Mahopac.
Participation in the athletic program is a privilege granted to students in return for compliance with certain rules and regulations. The Interscholastic Athletic Handbook for Athletes and Parents handbook will acquaint you with some specific policies and procedures that are necessary for a well-organized program of interscholastic athletics. Please familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations which govern participation in our program. A link to the handbook can be found on the athletics homepage.
We hope that all students will participate in some phase of our program. These will be memorable high school experiences that will last a lifetime.
Please remember that in order to participate in the interscholastic athletic program a valid physical must be on file with the nurse. Families have the option of uploading the signed "Sports Physical Certification Form" (preferred), or dropping off a copy at the nurse's office. A link to the "Sports Physical Certification Form" is located under the "Links" section of this page, as well as on the High School's website under the "Athletics" tab.
