About Us

Our Zone is made up of members living and/or working in Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga and Oswego counties. We host monthly meetings from September through May and a local conference in the spring. We invite you to join us and become a part of a diverse and robust organization that continually works to enhance our members knowledge and skills, ensuring their students have the highest quality health and physical education programs possible.
