Welcome to Athletics
Dear Parents, Student-Athletes and Community Members:
Welcome to the Rye City Schools Co-curricular Athletic Program! As always, it is an exciting time to be a part of the Rye Garnet Athletic community.
The Athletic program at Rye is an extension of the classroom and offers our students a unique opportunity to partake in an educational endeavor that is not offered in a traditional classroom setting.
Through participation in athletics, students are taught many life values and principles including, but not limited to, integrity, responsibility, accountability, healthy competition, cooperation, respect, sportsmanship and the importance of the team dynamic.The Athletic Department’s goal is to help each student-athlete realize their full potential, not only as student-athletes but also as well-rounded individuals who are equipped to take on leadership roles in our global society.
The success of our comprehensive program is illustrated and validated by the continued achievement our student-athletes demonstrate in the classroom and in competition. We ask all of our student-athletes to take a leadership role in promoting sportsmanship and exhibiting positive character as representatives of our community.
I thank you for your interest and commitment to the Rye City School District’s athletic programs, and I look forward to another tremendous year of athletics. GO GARNETS!
