About Us

Our Zone is made up of members living and/or working in Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Otsego, Schuyler, Tioga and Tompkins counties. We host monthly meetings from September through June and a local conference in the January. 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.

If you have questions, we encourage you to review our webpage or reach out to Pete Girolamo, Central South Zone President.
