Important Changes to WCSD Athletic Program for 2024-2025 School Year

Fellow Wolverines,

We have some exciting news to share about our athletic offerings.  Weedsport will be moving JV and Varsity volleyball to the fall season.  I wanted to explain the rationale behind this difficult decision so that you are aware of the district’s reasoning.  

  • The New York Public High School Athletic Association recognizes volleyball as a fall sport.  Winter volleyball is not played outside of Section 3. 
  • There are only 3 class C schools remaining in the winter season which would force us to play larger schools and travel longer distances.
  • This move allows us to play more “like-sized” schools.  
  • During the winter season, our students in other sports will be able to end practices earlier due to gym availability (less 7:30-9:30 PM practices).
  • Modified volleyball will still be in the winter season, allowing opportunities for our younger student-athletes to try multiple sports.

We understand this change will impact some more than others but feel it was necessary to make everyone aware.  We hope this decision will allow as many students the opportunity to be involved in athletics as possible.  Be on the lookout for a Parent Square in July for more information on fall athletics.  Thank you and GO WOLVERINES!
