Dear Parents/Guardians and Student-Athletes:
Welcome to the Camden Blue Devils Interscholastic Athletic Program. I am very pleased that you have shown an interest in this segment of our school program. Participation in athletics is a privilege and honor that provides an opportunity for developing life-long skills not always available in the academic classroom. Our goal is to provide an experience that promotes team and individual growth in a safe and healthy environment. When a student chooses to participate in our athletic program, he/she has committed himself/herself to certain responsibilities and obligations. This handbook will acquaint you with some of the specific rules that are necessary for a well-organized program of interscholastic athletics.
The Camden Interscholastic Athletic Program is governed by the regulations of the New York State Commissioner of Education’s basic code for extra-class athletic activities. We follow the Project Save Legislation regulations for compliance with Interscholastic Athletics. In addition, Camden is a member of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA), Section III and competes in the Tri-Valley League.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding the Camden Blue Devils Athletic Program. I look forward to working with you to ensure that you take advantage of the tremendous opportunities athletics can provide.
Administrator of Health, Physical Education and Interscholastic Athletics
