Hello Softball Families,

Congratulations to the girls for making it to the sectional finals! The game will be Saturday, May 27 at Holding Point in Horseheads at 2:00 pm. Since this is a sectional final game hosted by Section IV, digital tickets are required. Please use this link to purchase digital tickets ahead of the game. You will bring the tickets up on your phone when you arrive at the field. Please do not press "Use Tickets" until you are instructed to do so by a ticket taker. You will notice the link is for all softball sectional finals, it is not specific to the Southern Cayuga game. This is correct, there will only be one ticket which will give you access to any softball final game. Please share this link with any friends or family who may be interested in attending.

Go Chiefs,
Caitlin Wasielewski 

Hello Track Families,

Go Chiefs,

I am sending along information regarding the 2022 Cayuga County Holiday Tournament. We are excited to be back at CCC this year! All games will be played in their gymnasium. Tickets will be $5 per day. If you would like to attend multiple games in one day, you only need to purchase one ticket for the day. 
The times for Tuesday are set and available on Schedule Galaxy. The times for Wednesday are dependent upon a win or loss on Tuesday, as this determines whether we go to the championship or consolation game for each team.

Have a great day,

Also, a note to our soccer families... 

We are extremely proud of how well our boys did this season, and all the hard work and effort they put in. In order to recognize them for their amazing accomplishments, we are going to have a recognition ceremony prior to our varsity basketball game on Friday, December 9. We anticipate the ceremony will begin at approximately 6:45 pm in the high school gymnasium, though the time could be altered slightly by the length of the JV game prior to the ceremony. At this ceremony we will recognize the athletes and unveil a banner we will hang permanently in the gymnasium to honor their amazing run to states!

We hope to see all our soccer players and their families there. 

Thank you,
Caitlin Wasielewski

Hello Families,

I am contacting you because your child indicated interest in playing a winter sport this year. We are very excited to have your student take part in the athletics program at SCCS and cannot wait to see all they will accomplish this winter!

Winter sports will begin on the following dates:

Monday, October 24: Boys Modified Basketball and Girls 8th Grade Volleyball
Monday, October 31: Modified Fitness Club
Monday, November 14: JV/Varsity Sports
Tuesday, January 3: Girls Modified Basketball and Boys Modified Swim

Coaches will reach out shortly with practice times. Modified sports will practice after school, so modified parents will not need to arrange for their child to go home and come back at a later time. Modified students can stay at school until their practice begins. 

Students will need a current physical, defined as a physical given within one year in order to participate. Students will also need the following forms filled out. Please DO NOT fill out these forms yet for your child if they intend to participate in girls modified basketball or boys modified swim. We are too far outside of the allotted time window to complete the forms. I will send another email to families who have a student interested in those sports when the paperwork can be filled out. Paperwork can be filled out for all other winter sports.


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Caitlin Wasielewski
Hola familias,

Me comunico con usted porque su hijo indicó interés en practicar un deporte de invierno este año. ¡Estamos muy emocionados de que su estudiante participe en el programa de atletismo en SCCS y estamos ansiosos por ver todo lo que lograrán este invierno!
Los deportes de invierno comenzarán en las siguientes fechas:

Lunes 24 de octubre: Baloncesto modificado masculino y voleibol femenino de octavo grado
Lunes 31 de octubre: Gimnasio modificado
Lunes 14 de noviembre: JV/Varsity Sports
Martes 3 de enero: Baloncesto modificado femenino y natación modificada masculina

Los entrenadores se comunicarán en breve con los horarios de práctica. Los deportes modificados se practicarán después de la escuela, por lo que los padres modificados no necesitarán hacer arreglos para que su hijo se vaya a casa y regrese más tarde. Los estudiantes modificados pueden permanecer en la escuela hasta que comience su práctica.

Los estudiantes necesitarán un examen físico actual, definido como un examen físico dado dentro de un año para poder participar. Los estudiantes también necesitarán completar los siguientes formularios. NO llene estos formularios todavía para su hijo si tiene la intención de participar en baloncesto modificado para niñas o natación modificada para niños. Estamos demasiado lejos de la ventana de tiempo asignada para completar los formularios. Enviaré otro correo electrónico a las familias que tienen un estudiante interesado en esos deportes cuando se pueda completar el papeleo. El papeleo se puede completar para todos los demás deportes de invierno.

Hello Families,

Our students are currently working hard during the final push of the school year and are certainly finishing strong!
You are receiving this email because you have a student who indicated interest in playing a fall sport. There will be a pre-season meeting on Wednesday, August 10 at 6:00pm in the high school auditorium. At this meeting general information about the fall season will be shared. Sport coaches will also be there to share specific details about team expectations, practice schedules, and game schedules. 
  • Varsity fall sports will begin practicing on Monday, August 22.
  • Modified soccer and cross country will begin practicing on Wednesday, August 24, and modified swim will begin practicing on Monday, August 29.
Game schedules will be provided on our schedule manager, Schedule Galaxy. Please be aware schedules are being added now, but will likely change over the next couple months as they are finalized. 

Before your child can participate this fall, we will need a few items. The first is a current physical, which is defined as a physical completed within the past year. Many students' physicals will expire over the summer, so this is a great time to schedule one. If your student-athlete needs an updated physical, they can obtain one from their own doctor, or schedule one at Southern Cayuga high school on August 11 or August 16. If your child receives an updated physical, please either have your doctor fax it to the high school, or email it to our school nurse, Anne Reynolds at

We look forward to a strong year of athletics, and seeing our athletes competing next year!

In Partnership,
Caitlin Wasielewski
