Office of the Director of Athletics, Physical Education & Health

Dear Babylon Families,

Welcome to the Babylon athletic program. We are fortunate to have dedicated coaches leading our student-athletes as well as a network of support from our administration, staff, parents, and community. Our program is governed by the rules, regulations, and procedures prescribed by the New York State Public High School Athletics Association, Section XI, and the Babylon School District.

The overall goal of the program is to further the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of students through participation in athletics. Athletic success is most often measured by wins and losses; our goal is to find success in competition, in the classroom, and in the community.

Success is defined by a variety of desired outcomes:

  • Goal setting and a commitment to a common goal
  • Develop a work ethic and dedication to daily improvement
  • Respect for others in practice, competition, and in the community
  • Build lifelong friends and meaningful relationships
  • Celebrate success and learn from failure and adversity
  • Gain communication and leadership skills, learn to be part of a team
  • Appreciate the importance of good sportsmanship

I remind you of the need for all, (coaches, participants, and spectators), to promote and observe positive sportsmanship in competition and in the stands. Let the coaches coach, let the officials officiate, and let the players play.

Please contact me with any athletics-related questions and/or concerns.

Michael De Joseph
District Director of Health, PE & Athletics
