Athletic Placement Process

The Board of Education has approved the resolution to include the Athletic Placement Process (APP) in our current eligibility standards for 8th grade student athletes. Students are eligible for senior high athletic competition in a sport during each of four consecutive seasons beginning with entry into the ninth grade.

  •  Eligible to participate at the JUNIOR VARSITY(JV) LEVEL ONLY in the following Fall sports:  
    • Field Hockey, Football, Boys & Girls Soccer and Volleyball
  • Eligible to participate at the JV or VARSITY level in the following sports:   
    • Cross Country, Swim, Tennis

Open Gyms for Coaches Recommendation:  An (incoming) 8th grade student MUST have a John Jay coach's recommendation to begin the AP process.  If our coach is not familiar with the student interested in applying, the coach may wish to observe the student during a scheduled open gym.  Open gyms will be held the week of May 29th - the schedule will be posted shortly.

APP Tests:  APP tests will be given August 15th & 16th (HS sports begin August 20th).   More information to follow.

Katonah Lewisboro School District understands that students do not mature at the same rate, and there can be tremendous developmental differences between students of the same age. The APP is not to be used to fill positions on teams, instead, it is aimed at the few, select students who can benefit so that a student may be placed at a level of competition that should result in increased opportunity, a fairer competitive environment, minimized risk, and greater personal satisfaction.
