About Our Athletic Program
The Phoenix Central School District's Interscholastic Program offers students an opportunity for athletic competition in grades 7-12. We believe athletics is an outgrowth of the physical education and health program and therefore an integral part of the total educational program. The interscholastic competitive environment provides an opportunity for participants to learn vital positive life skills, values, and ethics in a climate that demands, dedication, responsibility, self-discipline, cooperation, a strong work ethic, and respect for others. This program provides an opportunity for all to share commonalities, celebrate differences, and appreciate physical fitness as a lifelong process.
In that vein all participants in the interscholastic athletic program must show a personal commitment to the goals of the team, and make the personal sacrifices necessary to achieve success. Making a commitment to excellence nurtures a sense of pride, loyalty, and leadership qualities in a student-athlete. Such attributes enable each individual to become more resilient, and better prepared to face life’s challenges. The unique experiences provided through participation in athletics allow students to achieve their full potential academically, athletically, and socially.
Phoenix is a member of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA), competing in Section III.
