Athletics

Welcome to HFCSD Athletics Home of the TIGERS!

Fitness and wellness are high priorities for Hudson Falls Central School District. Consequently, district facilities include a fitness center in the High School, an all-weather track complex open to the public 24 hours per day, as well as a swimming pool, tennis courts, and numerous gymnasiums and playing fields.

Participation in school sports teaches students some of life’s most valuable lessons. We are proud to foster traits such as giving your personal best for the team and showing sportsmanship in the face of both victory and defeat.  Opportunities within our interscholastic athletics allow students to exhibit character traits such as responsibility, leadership, respect, loyalty, health and wellness and good citizenship.

Hudson Falls Central School District’s athletic program offers extensive opportunities for male and female student athletes – nearly 20 sports across all three seasons. Our program is governed by the rules and regulations of the NYS Dept. of Education, NYS Public High School Athletic Association and the Foothills Council.

Our athletes are expected to respect their opponents, maintain self control and always respect the decision of game officials.  The athletic code of conduct stresses that participation is a privilege, not a right. Our Athletic Training and Behavior Rules outlines student eligibility for participation in grades 7-12.
