Information About Varsity and JV Football and Boys and Girls Volleyball

Dear High School Families,

On Tuesday evening, Feb. 23, the Board of Education approved moving forward with junior varsity and varsity boys and girls volleyball and football with all of the safety guidelines established by Schenectady County Public Health Services in place. This is the season that is known as “Fall 2” this year, with practices in Niskayuna beginning on March 7. Any students in grade 9th-12th grade interested in participating in any of these sports should sign-up online through the Athletic Department’s Family ID Platform.

Information about accessing FamilyID and creating an account can be found at

Coaches will reach out to those who express interest through FamilyID with more information.

As we move forward, the health and safety of all participants is our top priority. You can find an overview of our Athletic Safety Protocols here. The document contains links to sport-specific information as well.

District leaders remain committed to exploring additional in-person opportunities in co-curricular activities, including performing arts. We will keep you informed about this.
