Interscholastic Athletics

Ed Swartwout, Athletic Director, 467-2197 x 3246

The Deposit Central School District believes that a dynamic interscholastic athletic program is vital to the educational development of our students. Our athletic program provides a variety of experiences for the development of sports skills, physical fitness, a sense of loyalty, teamwork, sportsmanship and respect for others that will prepare student-athletes for success in their adult life. As team members, student-athletes are encouraged to face challenges and develop their leadership skills.

Every effort is made to support the athletic program with the best facilities, uniforms and equipment and with the most qualified coaching staff available. Our coaches reflect a sound, positive philosophy while teaching our students in a safe and healthful environment.

Our athletic program is governed by the regulations established by the commissioner of education’s “Basic Code for Athletic Activities”, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association and our policy for interscholastic athletics.

The opportunity to participate in our sports program is afforded to all eligible secondary students in grades 7-12.
