Dear Parents and Student Athletes,
Welcome to the Mineola Public Schools Interscholastic Athletic program! This handbook has been prepared to be used as a reference by our student athletes and their parents/guardians in an effort to define responsibilities as they pertain to the rules and regulations, as well as the policies and procedures for participation in our interscholastic athletic program.
The Mineola Public Schools Interscholastic Athletic program is governed by the regulations of the New York State Commissioner of Education’s basic coed for extra class athletic activities. In addition, Mineola is a member of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA). Specific guidelines are established for Middle School students as a part of the NYSPHSAA Modified Interscholastic Sports Program.
We are proud of the effort and accomplishments of all of our athletes and coaches. Our department strives to enhance the student athlete physically, socially and mentally. We encourage our athletes to win without boasting, lose without excuses and never quit. We expect athletes to respect coaches, teammates, opponents and officials and understand that their actions represent all in the Mineola community. Through team concepts of family, sacrifice and discipline students will learn life lessons through sports and mature into better athletes and citizens.
Mr. Ralph Amitrano
District Supervisor of Athletics,

event for all the wrestlers.
