The Advanced Placement process was developed by the NYS Education Department to assist schools with determining a student-athletes readiness to compete at a higher level of interscholastic athletic competition. The intent of this program is to permit the truly accelerated student-athlete the opportunity to participate safely at the appropriate level of competition based upon readiness rather than age and grade.
This program is designed to assess a student-athlete's physical maturation, physical fitness and skill so the student-athlete may be placed at the appropriate level of competition. This should result in increased opportunity, a fairer competitive environment, reduced injury and greater personal satisfaction. The Varsity Coach in each sport, in consultation with the Athletic Director, recommends individuals for this process. The requirements and procedures can be found in the attached documents.
