Welcome Parent and Prospective Student Athletes

As Director of Athletics, I would like to welcome you to the Coginchaug Regional High School Athletics page.  I look forward to getting to know you and your student athlete as they progress through CRHS.

Successful athletic programs can only be accomplished by a cooperative effort between student athletes, the school, and its community.  As a department, the coaches and staff pride themselves in creating a positive experience for every student athlete at CRHS.  Being a part of a team grows positive relationships with peers and adults while fostering a feeling of camaraderie.  We strive to create an environment that promotes sportsmanship, equity, and fairness for all our student athletes and coaches.

It is my belief that athletic teams can achieve individual accomplishments, however successful athletic programs entail so much more.  Success begins with a team approach.  This begins with a dedicated coaching staff and mentors, a supportive athletic administration providing supportive leadership and opportunities of growth, and a supportive school community providing a sense of school provide.  Most importantly, a successful athletic program is built in student athletes feeling a connection to their athletic department and understanding how all these parts fit together to create ultimate CHAMPIONS.  We will take pride and excitement as we look to establish this in the communities of Durham and Middlefield. 

I look forward to working with the students athletes and families that make up the successful community of Coginchaug Regional High School.  I look forward to meeting all of you at various events around school and the community.  Please feel free to come up and say, "Hello"!
