Athletic Placement Process

Consistent with New York State Education Department regulations,  the Athletic Placement Process is a process for screening students to determine their readiness to compete in high school level interscholastic athletic competition by evaluating their physical maturity, fitness, and skill. 

The intent of the Athletic Placement Process (formerly Selection Classification) is to provide for students in grades 7 through 12 a mechanism allowing them to participate safely at an appropriate level of competition based upon readiness rather than age and grade. This includes certain middle school students who qualify to participate at a higher level.

Students must be recommended by the team’s coach in order to proceed through the Athletic Placement Process.
