Director's Memo: Sports are a time commitment
Updated for the spring 2016 sports season
Sports are a time commitment.

If you are participating in a varsity, JV or modified (grades7-8) sport, please keep in mind that you are making a commitment to your team and that sport. To be fair, each player must make the commitment to be present at each practice and contest throughout the season before tryouts begin. This weighs heavily on the decisions made by coaches when they determine their rosters. A schedule is given at the beginning of each team’s season and is also available before tryouts upon request.

Athletic offerings

The City School District of Albany offers students an opportunity for athletic competition in grades 7-12 at Hackett Middle School, Myers Middle School, North Albany Academy and Albany High School.

 

The district's athletic teams are competing as independents in 2014-15, with no conference affiliation, following the dissolution of the Big 10 Athletic Conference last summer. All Albany High School teams and student-athletes remain eligible for postseason competition in Section II of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA). The district is also a member of the Tri-County Indoor Track League, Adirondack Swim League for men and the Aqua Swim League for women. 


The district offers 11 female sports activities on 25 teams at varying levels of competition, and 12 male sports activities on 27 teams at varying levels of competition. Each year more than 1,000 athletes go through the district's program coached by certified athletic coaches.
