athletic placement PRocess (APP)

NYS has implemented a new process for 7th and 8th grade students who wish to “play up” at the high school level in a sport. The state’s new Athletic Placement Process (APP) for Interschool Athletic Programs replaces the current Selection Classification process we use to determine an athletes’ eligibility to play up. Parents and athletes should be aware that the new process is more involved and fall athletes looking to play up should have most of the APP requirements completed prior to leaving school for the summer.
