The goal of the athletic department is to conduct a comprehensive program which is consistent with the philosophy of the East Haddam School System.  As a part of the total education process, our athletic program makes a significant contribution to the personal growth and development of the participants.  We strive to increase the student’s knowledge as well as to contribute to their maturity, teach ethical and moral values, and motivate them in the pursuit of excellence so we can produce individuals who realize their self-worth and reach their full potential.

Part of our continued pursuit to improve our athletic programs in East Haddam is a reflection process based upon feedback from both parents and students. Please find links below that will direct you to a student survey and/or a parent survey. The data collected from these surveys will remain anonymous. The information will help administrators and the athletic director to lead our programs in making beneficial adjustments in order to achieve further success.  Please take a few moments to complete the surveys.
