Dear Parent and Student Athletes,

Congratulations on making the decision to participate in the Lakeland Central School District Interscholastic Athletic Program. Your involvement in our sports program will give you the opportunity to meet and work with our diverse, talented student body and our outstanding, dedicated coaching staff.

Our coaching staff cares about our athletes. They encourage academic achievement and character development. They believe that a truly educated individual is intellectually knowledgeable as well as physically educated. Our fine coaches serve as excellent, positive role models for our students, and we are very proud of them and their achievements. I look forward to working with coaches, athletes, and parents during the 2021-2022 school year and hope the experiences for students are meaningful and memorable.

When your daughter/son chooses to participate in one of our sports programs, we feel they will have made a commitment to certain responsibilities and obligations.  This handbook will acquaint you with some specific policies that are necessary for a well-organized program of interscholastic athletics. The program is governed by the regulations established by the Commissioner of Education's basic code for extra-class athletic activities.

Lakeland High School and Walter Panas High School are members of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) and Section 1 BOCES Athletics. If you have questions regarding Interscholastic Athletics please contact the athletic department:
