Athletics

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. 

Athletic Schedule

The Orange County Interscholastic Athletic Association (OCIAA) 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 OCIAA 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.
