The primary purpose of the athletic program at the Warwick Valley Central School District is to promote our students’ physical, mental, social, emotional and moral well-being. The district believes that participation in athletics contributes to a well-rounded education and gives students experiences that help them succeed outside of school. The Warwick Wildcats compete in Section 9 of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. 

Athletics will return to Wildcat Country as Section IX sports begin Jan. 19th

Section IX scholastic athletics will return on January 19th, following a pause in New York State that began in March 2020.  Section IX is composed of over 40 schools from the Orange County League and the Mid-Hudson Athletic League. The leagues voted 16 -1 in favor of a plan that will re-order the seasons.

Winter sports will begin on January 19th  (Indoor Track, Boys Swimming and Skiing) followed by the fall season on March 1st (Football, Spirit Cheer, Soccer, Volleyball, Cross Country, Girls Tennis, Girls Swim) then spring sports on April 19th (Baseball, Softball, Outdoor Track, Lacrosse, Golf, Boys Tennis and Crew Club). The sports of basketball, wrestling, competition cheer, football, volleyball and lacrosse are pending approval prior to their starts. 

The fall and spring seasons will be condensed with the fall sports running in March and April and the spring season during May and June. There will be no overlap of the seasons.  As a result of these changes there will be many firsts occurring, including Warwick celebrating its first homecoming during the spring of 2021 (it is usually in the fall).

The athletics model for the year includes all levels from the middle school up through high school and is contingent on the Warwick Valley Central School District being in session.

Please email or call the athletics director’s office at 987-3050, ext. 12880 or gsirico@wvcsd.org for additional information.

Athletic Schedule

Section IX has created a Warwick Valley Central School District schedule page that provides teams schedules and important information. As an added bonus, parents have the option of signing up to receive automatic notifications related to date, time or facility changes, as well as game cancellations via email or text. View the Warwick schedule on the Section IX website here.

Additionally, all athletic meetings, events and physical dates are listed on the Athletic Department’s Google Calendar. The Warwick Athletic Hotline is also a great resource for cancellations and daily contests. To access the hotline, call (845) 987–3050 and select option 8.

Concussion Management and Awareness Act

A concussion is defined as a type of traumatic brain injury, caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head that can change the way the brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

Most people who suffer a concussion do recover quickly. However, in more severe cases, a concussion can be fatal. Unlike a broken bone or a laceration, outward signs of a concussion can’t be seen. By learning to identify the symptoms and danger signs of concussions coaches, teachers and parents can help keep children safe.

The state’s Concussion Management and Awareness Act requires that students with a possible concussion or brain injury are removed from athletic activities, including physical education classes, interscholastic sports and other extracurricular activities. Students will not be allowed to resume athletic activity until they have been symptom-free for 24 hours, and have been evaluated by and received written and signed authorization from a licensed physician. For interscholastic athletics, clearance must come from the school’s medical director.
