Athletics

Athletics provide an opportunity to develop qualities of sportsmanship, citizenship, and personal discipline in addition to physical athletic skills. BKW student athletes are expected to represent themselves, their school and community in a positive and respectful manner.

Participation in the BKW athletic program is a privilege, not a right. Regulations are in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week. BKW is proud of the successful athletic program it maintains. The high standard of conduct to which we hold our athletes helps us to uphold this positive representation.

Our athletic code addresses attendance, academic eligibility, alcohol, tobacco and drugs, and citizenship and sportsmanship, among other factors. Code violations can result in discipline ranging from game suspensions to removal from the team.

All current athletes are given an athletic handbook. Extra copies of this document are available in the Secondary School office.

Please note for fall & winter 2020 sports

Looking ahead to next school year, if the fall and winter sports seasons proceed as usual, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) will permit student athletes to participate in the fall 2020 sports season if they have previously had a health examination for school attendance in the 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 school years. A copy of this physical must be on file with the school nurse. Student athletes must also provide a health history completed and signed by their parent/guardian within 30 days of the start of the season. Read more
