Dear parents/ guardians
My name is George Bullock and I am the athletic director at Brooklyn Community Arts and Media High School. On behalf on the Athletic Department at BCAM high school, I would like to sincerely welcome you to our professional learning community.
Here at BCAM high school we believe in not only preparing our students for 21th century academic success but we also believe that participation in sports provides a wealth of opportunities and experiences, which assist students in personal adjustments throughout their lives and their educational maturity. Athletics play an important part in our professional learning community. Young people learn a great deal from their participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part of each team in our athletic program. Furthermore, athletics play an important part in helping the individual student develop a healthy self-concept as well as a healthy body. Athletic competition adds to our school spirit and helps all students – spectators as well as participants – develop pride in their school. Participation in athletics is a privilege and together with academics is a part of the well-rounded education our school and community provides.
The athletic program at BCAM High School offers students the opportunity to compete in a wide variety of competitive inter-scholastic sports. Currently, the school offers 8 PSAL (Public School Athletic league) varsity sport teams of various competitive levels and the list continues to grow every year. Each team is coached by qualified and knowledgeable coaches (our very own BCAM Teachers) committed to providing outstanding programs and opportunities for BCAM High School student-athletes.
