The Dryden Athletics Website will be undergoing revisions this summer...please be patient as some existing pages will be changing and some new pages will have incomplete content.  We hope you'll like the final product!

Fall Sport Physicals

For those who are in need of a school-provided physical to be medically cleared for Fall sports, we have set up a clinic the morning of Tuesday August 12th.  Students will report to the HS or MS nurse at the school for a portion of the physical, and then will report to Dr. Niziol's office on the corner of Rt. 38 and Lewis St. (a short walk) for the rest of the physical.  Please contact the Athletic Department to schedule a time if you need this service (there will also be a required parent permission form).


New Pilot Sport at Dryden--Cross Country

The Board of Education at their 7/14 meeting voted to approve Var/Mod, Boys/Girls Cross Country as a sport for the 2014-15 school year on a co-funded basis (the school will pay for transportation and the team/parents/supporters will fundraise for other costs like the coach's salary.  This is an exciting opportunity for the 20+ students who had signed up in the Spring, as well as any who might want to do so now.  This approval is for our own team, NOT the original deal that was worked on with Groton.  If you have any questions, please contact the Athletics office.

Fall Sports Kick-off Meeting Night Set

Athletes mark your calendars for August 11 as our annual Fall Kick-off Meeting will occur in the HS auditorium that night at 6:30pm.  This meeting is a chance for athletes and their parents to meet the coaches, hear about the Dryden Athletic program, as well as learn about changes to the Extracurricular Code of Conduct.  The annual coaches meeting will take place in the Library at 4:30, prior to the Kick-off Meeting.

Athletics is an integral part of a student’s education. It has an obligation/goal of developing skills that will enable our young women and men to be successful in life. Skills such as leadership, teamwork, character, poise, discipline, loyalty, mental toughness, physical conditioning, hard work and school pride are not only by-products of participation in our program but also a shared vision by our coaching staff and Board of Education.

A majority of Dryden students participate in interscholastic athletics. Dryden has traditionally boasted its share of championship teams and all-star players. However, such measures of success are the outcome, rather than the primary goal, of the athletic program.
