Athletic Placement Process

  • The Athletic Placement Process (APP) is a program for evaluating students who want to participate in sports at higher or lower levels.  The intent of the APP is to provide a protocol to allow students in grades 7 and 8 to move up; or for students in grades 9-12 to move down, allowing them to participate safely at an appropriate level of competition based upon physical and emotional readiness and athletic ability rather than by age and grade.

    To read more and begin the process, click on "NYS APP Document" at the bottom of this page.  The "APP Parent Permission" form must be completed prior to the deadline for that sport season. Student-athletes must also have an up-to-date physical on file with the school nurse.

    Important Information:
    The physical fitness testing area is open to only student-athletes being tested and coaches. Student-athletes need to bring fitness clothing (sneakers, shorts, t-shirt). The test typically lasts for 1-1.5 hour(s). All student-athletes being tested must arrive on time. Student-athletes will need to be picked up at school at the conclusion of the test. Student-athletes need to be physically prepared and train to pass the fitness test.
