At Dominican Academy, excellence extends beyond the classroom into the court, field and pool. Over 40% of our students participate in athletics as members of our varsity teams. We are a member of the Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) of the Archdiocese of New York.
The mission of the Dominican Academy Athletic Department is to create a dynamic environment that promotes competitiveness, spirituality, teamwork and self-discipline. We strive to provide a quality experience for all student-athletes in the Roman Catholic tradition and in keeping with our school’s mission, we see athletics as another way to “build community” and “make a meaningful contribution.” We are committed to building character, developing responsibility, and promoting integrity and honor, which will become lifelong traits. We believe student-athletes at Dominican Academy will benefit from the life lessons athletic competition offers and therefore are committed to providing this opportunity to our student body.

Any new or returning student who wishes to participate in D.A. Athletics must fulfill the following requirements:
Athletic Registration Form: Required for all new and returning student-athletes. This must be completed and submitted before try-outs. Students who have not completed this form by the registration deadline will be unable to participate in try-outs. Click here for the registration form.. This form requires the following documentation:
Annual Health Exam: All students who wish to participate in D.A athletics, including tryouts, need to have a health exam every 12 months. The annual health exam should be documented by the student’s healthcare provider and state that she is medically fit to participate in athletics without restrictions. Students who have not had a documented health exam within the last 12 months are not permitted to participate in school sports, including tryouts, until a new health exam has been completed. Click here for the Child & Adolescent Health Examination Form.
Interval Health History Form: Required for all student-athletes. This must be completed by a parent/guardian no sooner than 30 days prior to the first try-out. Failure to do so will result in the student being unable to participate in any athletic activities. If a student has already participated in a sport, but is trying out for another sport in a different season, the 30-day Interval Health History Form must be completed and submitted again for the new season.

Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination: All student-athletes must be fully vaccinated before the first tryout session and must submit proof of vaccination.
