Rye Jr high Sports
Philosophy - The athletic program is part of the overall educational process. As educators, we view the playing field as an extension of the classroom. Accordingly, the athletic teams should provide an avenue for all students to be challenged to learn skills and concepts such as, sport specific physical skills, theory of the game, teamwork, sportsmanship, respect, responsibility and commitment.
