- Go to the Greece District website @ www.greececsd.org
- Click on Students, Athletics, and Forms & Documents
- Look for Re-Certification Online – click on and complete form. Don’t forget to upload your student’s most recent Physical form.
Before a student may try-out for a sport, he/she must pass a sports physical, have permission from his/her parent or guardian, and be recertified. Students must be recertified each season they plan on playing a sport, even if they’ve played during the Fall or Winter season during the same year. A sports physical is good for one calendar year only. Additionally, students must be up-to-date on all New York State required immunizations. Physicals administered during June, July, and August, 2018 are good for any sport during the 2018-2019 school year.
For additional information, please call the Athletic Office at 966-4014.
Sports Schedules: Just a reminder for coaches to check their schedules at www.mcpsac-ny.org. This is the only OFFICIAL schedule for Athena Athletics. As the winter sports season gets underway, the athletic office would like to remind middle school students and their families regarding attendance at home basketball games. All middle school students must be accompanied by an adult to enter any of our home basketball games modified through varsity. Students must leave the building after the school day and return with an adult for the games. Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.
