FALL 2021Any incoming 7th or 8th grader who is interested in attempting to qualify for a FALL JV or Varsity high school sport must passnot only an athletic physical (which will include a maturity examination), but also a Physical Fitness Performance Test.Parental Permission is required in order to test.The New York State Education Department voted to revise the S/C (Selection Classification) program. Out are the broad jump, 1.5 mile run, arm hang and 50 yd dash. The test will now include; sit-ups, 10-yard shuttle run, 1-mile run, pull-ups, and sit & reach flexibility assessment. To pass the Fitness Component students must attain 85th percentile (from national norms for their age) in 4 of 5 tests. The Tanner level has been revised as well. In short, previously the highest tanner level student-athletes needed to reach was a #4. SED has now created a tanner #5; to play at the varsity level a tanner level of #5 is now required in 17 boys sports and 17 girls sports. And a third change is that SED will NO LONGER consider any appeals.Tuesday, August 17th, 2021 @ 9amThursday, August 19th, 2021 @ 9amFriday, August 20th, 2021 @ 9amAll testing will be done at 9:00am at Crosby Field.
