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.

Signing up for a sport

You will need to fill out/sign and return the below and have these cleared by the nurse prior to the start of the season...DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE--if the forms are not signed by the nurse (the final OK), you must sit!



--Health Form

--Extracurricular Code of Conduct

--Coaches Manual


--Physical Form (if getting it done by your own doctor)

--Administration of medicine

--Self-administration of medicine


Physicals are required to participate in athletics.  For a physical to be valid, it has to be within a year of the start date of the sport, to the month (for example, if a sport starts on August 15, a physical is valid as far back as August 1 of the previous year).  Each year the Athletic Department sets up free athletic physicals for a day in August at the school.  To participate, you MUST pre-schedule with the Athletics office.   Participating in this is a good idea if there is a chance your insurance will not allow a new physical in time for one of the sports season's beginning dates (ie: maybe a sport starts in January, but you can't get your annual physical until February, keeping you ineligible until then).  2017-18's physical day will be August 4.   For those needing a quick out-of-pocket option for getting a sports physical, Five Star Urgent Care in Ithaca does walk in physicals for a relatively low price (contact info here).
