The Ossining School District's Interscholastic Athletic Program is a natural extension of the school curriculum that provides activities for the growth and development of our students. This program also contributes significantly to preparing our students for becoming productive, contributing citizens of our community and society. A comprehensive program of athletic activities expresses our commitment to ensure the development of physical fitness and personal health, the acquisition of competent performances, and the achievement of excellence in the student's chosen sport.
Athletic Information for the Fall
Varsity and JV High School Fall Sports 2020 (For Ossining High School Students Only)
I am writing to inform you that registration for fall sports is now open on Family ID and must be completed by Sept. 29. Section I athletics has granted schools permission to start practice and play of certain varsity and junior varsity sports starting on Sept. 29. The sports that are allowed to start on that date are:
- Boys soccer
- Girls soccer
- Field hockey
- Girls tennis
- Boys/girls cross country
All junior varsity and varsity athletes (grades 9-12) must have a valid physical with a complete immunization record on file in the Health Office. No student-athlete will be able to try out or practice until all mandatory medical information has been received.
If you register for a sport and then choose to play another one, that is fine. Just inform the coach and the Athletic Office.
Although girls swimming is classified as a low-risk sport, we cannot open registration because the majority of schools do not have a pool. Section I is currently discussing the possibility of moving girls swimming to another season.
For football, cheer and volleyball, which are classified as high-risk sports, the NYSPHSAA has moved the season start date to March 1, 2021.
Middle school sports are currently being discussed by Section 1 and have not been approved at this time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to a successful season.
***** Although State Officials have provided authorization for
interscholastic athletics to resume, we are gathering more information and hope to open registrations in the near future. Sign ups will not be open until then.)
Please encourage your child to do some aerobic exercises. Recommended exercise includes hiking, jogging, power walking, weight training, biking and swimming. Please remember that proper stretching, warm up and cool down is equally important for injury prevention.
We will continue to monitor state and local regulations regarding the status of fall sports. If you have any questions, please contact us.
