Program Philosophy

    The Schenectady Football Program is a program that is built on tradition and success. Participating for the Schenectady Patriots is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, to the football program, to the student body, to the community, and to the student-athletes themselves. Each member of the Schenectady Football Program will learn about the ideals of competition, teamwork, and sportsmanship while achieving goals of success. Furthermore, each member will gain a development of self-confidence, self-discipline, organization, decision-making, and goal orientation.
     A Schenectady Patriot coach and player will always demonstrate great Pride, Dedication, and Discipline in everything they do. Schenectady Patriots will always train to excel not only on the football field, but also in the classroom and in the community. It is an honor to wear the football helmets of Schenectady.
