About Galway Athletics

Galway Central School Athletic Department


The Galway Central School District’s Interscholastic Athletic Program offers students an opportunity for athletic competition in grades 7-12.

The Galway Golden Eagles’ athletic teams are members of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) competing as a class C school in Section 2. Our league affiliation is with the Western Athletic Conference (WAC).

We believe athletics should be a broadening experience in striving for physical and mental excellence. Everyone, from coaching staff to student-athletes, involved in our athletic programs possess a unique opportunity to teach positive life skills and values. Student-athletes will develop characteristics including dedication, perseverance, self-discipline, responsibility, integrity, pride, and loyalty. The final outcome of participating in Galway Athletics will be to become a better citizen prepared for not only success in school, but also in life.


Our goals are:

  1. To develop and maintain the highest level of sportsmanship.

  2. To develop proper attitudes toward winning and losing, success and failure.

  3. To encourage and develop respect for fellow athletes whether they are teammates, members of other Galway teams, or members of opposing teams.

  4. To assure that the amount of time required for athletic participation does not interfere with academic success.

  5. To develop proper attitudes toward individual health habits, appearance on and off the field, and citizenship in and out of school.

  6. To encourage competition not only for the tangible rewards but also for the development of positive attitudes that make athletic competition valuable and worthwhile.

  7. To orient all athletic staff members to abide by the rules, regulations, and officials’ decisions that govern each sport.

  8. To maintain the highest standard of ethics, recognize each participant as an individual who will conduct him/herself in a manner befitting his/her responsibilities, and develop the kind of rapport with the broader school community that will improve the total educational program.

Go Golden Eagles!!!!
