Croton-Harmon Athletics

  • Our Philosophy
    Athletics, a microcosm of life, continuously challenges our limitations and plays a tremendous role in our overall development. Our philosophy utilizes the teachings of our district and department’s core values to produce successful outcomes for each individual and team by contributing to the development of well-rounded individuals. This is made possible through the fostering of positive experiences and relationships, while challenging our student-athletes to maximize their capabilities, on and off the field. It is our mission to establish an environment that facilitates a safe, equitable and educational interscholastic experience to those who demonstrate both a passion for learning and a willingness to be a productive member of the team, school and community. 

    Our Purpose 
    Through our collective experiences and love for our respective sports, we look to educate, mentor and positively impact the character of our student-athletes by translating athletic experiences into life lessons.

Upcoming Events

  • The Croton-Harmon Athletics Department looks to further develop a positive, educational and engaging athletic experience for its student-athletes, coaches and parents. This January we will begin a series of workshops for all three of these stakeholders, each facilitated by the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). The Positive Coaching Alliance mission is to transform the youth sports culture into a Development Zone® where all youth and high school athletes have a positive, character-building experience that results in Better Athletes, Better People.

    The first workshop, BECOMING A TRIPLE-IMPACT COMPETITOR®will engage our student-athletes in a training that impacts sport on three levels;

    1. By improving oneself drawing on the principle of Mastery of Sport, where emphasis lies on effort, learning, and bouncing back from mistakes;

    2. By improving teammates’ ties to Filling Emotional Tanks with the right mix of truthful, specific praise and constructive criticism;

    3. By improving the game as a whole and advancing sportsmanship values by Honoring the Game.

    This student-athlete workshop will take place this Wednesday, January 9th from 3:10 until 4:40pm. We ask for your support in ensuring that your son or daughter participates in this workshop and gains valuable insight on how to become a Triple Impact Competitor. A companion workshop on January 16th will work with coaches on Developing The Triple-Impact Competitor®.

    The third and final workshop for parents is called Second-Goal Parent. This workshop acknowledges winning as the first goal in sports. But in youth and high school sports there is a second, more important goal: teaching life lessons through sports. In this workshop, parents of athletes learn why and how to focus on that second goal. This workshop supports the essence of this philosophy and provides several tips and tools parents can use to help their children get the most from their youth and high school sports experience. Please join us on January 30th from 7:00 – 8:15pm in the Croton-Harmon HS Auditorium for this thought-provoking and beneficial conversation.
