About Us

Our Zone is made up of members living and/or working in  Allegany, Genesee, Livingstone, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates 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.


If you have questions, we encourage you to review our webpage or reach out to Eric Kohl, Central Western Zone President.
