Rye Neck Athletics



    Dear Parents, Student-Athletes and Community:

          Welcome to the Rye Neck Interscholastic Athletic Program.  At Rye Neck we believe in the positive impact athletics has on a school community and its members.  
          Through participation in athletics, students learn numerous life lessons and values that they will carry through life.  These include, but not limited to, integrity, sportsmanship, responsibility, accountability, healthy competition, cooperation, respect and time management.  They also will learn the importance of being a constructive member of a team that is working towards a collective goal.
          The Athletic Department’s objective is to help each student-athlete realize their full potential, not only as student-athletes but as well-rounded individuals that become leaders who will make a positive impact in our community and beyond.
          On the left hand side of this page, you will find links to helpful resources and information.  Thank you for your interest in, and support of, the Rye Neck Athletic program.  It’s a privilege to work with such wonderful coaches and student-athletes here at Rye Neck.   Go Panthers!
