The DGM sports program is under the direction of our Athletic Director, Ronda Jameel. This is Ms. Ronda’s 6th year at DGM and she is also the Physical Education Program Lead for Primary through MYHS. Currently the DGM coaches are Ronda Jameel, Stephanie Jones, and Justin Walters.  Our athletic team and coaches will be growing as we expand our program.

DGM will be offering a variety of sports throughout the 2017-18 school year.  Sports play an important role in an athlete’s life. Athletes will learn the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, perseverance, respect for authority, rules, and teammates, and how to win with class and lose with dignity.

Athletes will begin to view competitions on and off the field or court as opportunities to learn from their successes and failures. They will try hard to pursue excellence, not perfection. Learning to have a positive outlook on an experience, win or lose, is an important skill that students can apply to many areas of life.

DGM sports practices take place after school and most games and events are held on the weekends. While we may play some of the sports in our Physical Education classes, our sports program and teams are separate.

DGM works with the YMCA, NYS, i9 Sports, and various sports programs around the valley.
