Spring Sports Update from Athletic Director Mr. Ferrara

Delaware Academy closes out a successful Fall-2 season ahead of new guidelines for attendance, spring athletics

April 26, 2021


Fellow Bulldogs—

What an amazing ride it has been to finally arrive at this point with our athletes this year. Recently, Delaware Academy completed its Fall-2 sports season, and a great season it was. The weather was cooperative, smiles were abundant, and life on our athletic fields began to move towards a feeling of normalcy. Below is a list of highlights from our Fall sports season:

• Modified and Varsity football combined for 10 wins and 0 losses, undefeated.
• 
Girls Varsity and Modified Soccer 13-2, Girls Varsity was undefeated 9-0.
Cross Country won 2 MAC titles and 2 Sectional Titles (their 4th in a row)
Boys Varsity Soccer and Modified Soccer combined for a 9-1 record.  Boys modified finished undefeated.
Varsity, JV and Modified Volleyball combined for a 12-8 overall record.

The District has also transitioned to the start of its spring sports season comprised of Golf,

Tennis, Baseball, Softball, and Track and Field. These sports are listed on NYSPHSAA’s guidance document as low and moderate-risk activities. As such, there will be no need for athletes to complete the high-risk waiver forms sent out in prior sports seasons, however it will be required that health history forms are complete and on file with respective coaches.

At this point we do not have the capability to livestream all spring sports, an exception being home Track and Field meets which will be livestreamed on the NFHS network. Based on guidance from New York State DOH, the District must limit attendance of outdoor gatherings, including sports, to a maximum of 200 spectators. Spectators attending sports activities will NOT be required to preregister, but ALL spectators are required to check in upon arrival, to provide info for contact tracing. 

We appreciate your continued support of our coaches and athletes at Delaware Academy. Please remember as you arrive to support these young men and women we are continuing with our policies as they relate to social distancing by family and mask wearing whenever on school grounds. I hope to see many of you soon we begin our first spring sports season since March 2019. 

Finally, just an upcoming event to be aware of. I will be emailing all students in grades 6-11 within the next week to sign up for fall sports which begins August 23.  This effort ensures that the DASH office can identify students in need of a sports physical prior to next year. These sign-ups also will drive decisions on what levels of sports we will be able to offer. Having accurate signups will be important for our summer work. Please encourage your son or daughter to get involved with athletics. It’s truly a great experience at DA!

 

GO BULLDOGS,

Jeff Ferrara

 Mission Statement

To create an environment focused on pride, unity and character; where student-athletes demonstrate a strong social conscience.  The Delaware Academy Athletic Department considers athletics an integral part of education.  It is our goal to give our student athletes the tools and skills to achieve this mission. Being a part of a team not only promotes a healthy lifestyle but provides multiple opportunities for skill enhancement, competition, collaboration, and cooperation. We also believe that physical fitness, discipline and success can help promote academic success, and we expect that our athletes take pride in their performance in the classroom as well as on the field. While we strive to build competitive, winning teams, our primary mission is to promote the values of education, school spirit and fair play.
