The Department of Athletics at the Massapequa School District provides opportunities for our student-athletes to receive a quality experience both in the classroom and in interscholastic competition. Athletics enhances the intellectual, social, and personal development of our student-athletes, helping them to grow through their experience at the Massapequa School District and to prepare for meaningful careers and lives. Toward this purpose, the Department of Athletics promotes academic achievement, good sportsmanship, ethical conduct, and equitable opportunity for students and staff. The guiding principle of the school district is to focus on academics first; therefore we view our successes based not on wins and losses, but as linked to the educational mission of the school district and the welfare of our student-athletes.
