A MESSAGE FROM THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR,
CHRIS DROSOPOULOS

The Briarcliff Manor School District recognizes and supports the importance of a quality Interscholastic Athletic Program.  It is our mission to foster the quest for excellence by creating an educational experience that is competitive within an atmosphere of sportsmanship.  Our programs will develop individual and team potential by promoting high standards of competence, character and citizenship.  Lessons learned through athletic participation in organized sports programs are the keen elements of the education process.  To reach the high standards of excellence, it is essential to work together toward one common goal and that is to ensure that student/athletes and their families continue to experience the quality and enjoyment that our interscholastic program has to offer.  At Briarcliff, our student/athletes have been quite successful.  The League, Sectional, Regional & State Championships earned are only part of the success that our district has to offer.  They have garnered Con Ed Scholarships, numerous athletic awards as well as New York State Scholar Athlete teams, all of which have been recognized by the state.  I consider it an honor and a privilege to be able to work with such amazing coaches, student/athletes and their families here at Briarcliff.
