Philosophy of Interscholastic Athletics

The interscholastic athletic program at Pawling Central Schools is an integral part of the educational program of the District.  The benefits of a comprehensive athletic program provide not only member athletes, but all students, staff, parents and community members’ opportunities for school/community interaction, the development of an involved, active citizenry, building school pride and increased interest and involvement in all school activities.

 The philosophy of the Pawling Central School District Athletic Department supports the development of students who are well rounded, productive and contributing members of our community and a democratic society in general. 

 The experiences gained through team competition in interscholastic athletics provide student/athletes learning opportunities that are complimentary to those learned in the classroom and yet are recognized as unique.  These equally important lessons provide completeness to the development of the individual and the entire learning community that cannot be attained in the classroom alone.  Students who choose to participate in interscholastic athletics are exposed to opportunities that further develop social, emotional and athletic skills.  Student-Athletes at the interscholastic level are taught to dismiss the concept of entitlement and learn the value of earned play time.  Furthermore, students develop a sense of team work, sportsmanship, self-discipline, dedication, hard work, and respect in addition to a lifestyle promoting physical health and wellness. 

 It is the goal of the Pawling Central School District Athletic Department to work in partnership with student-athletes, families, and the many community groups to experience quality, productive and enjoyable athletic opportunities.

Important Fall 2020 Dates

Due to COVID-19, the status of interscholastic athletics this fall is still undetermined.  

Registration through FamilyID for a fall sport will not be available until there is clarification on if, and when, a fall season will take place.  The original date set by NYSPHSAA for Varsity and JV sports to begin is August 24.   We expect to learn more about that timeline in the next few weeks.  

As more information becomes available we will be sure to communicate with our community, athletes, parents and coaches.  Stay safe
