DCSD PHILOSOPHY

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.
