Message From the Athletic Director

As we enter the 2021-22 school year, we do so with optimism for a full return to STORM SPORTS.


As a “lifer” in the world of athletics as an athlete, coach and administrator; I fully understand the role that athletics plays in the culture of the school and the development of our students.  I will assist in enhancing our students experience at KYHS through the vehicle of Storm Athletics.


I enter my fourth year as the Athletic Director at Katz Yeshiva High School of South Florida, and we have executed our plan to enhance our Athletic offerings. Our coaching staff has expanded and is dedicated, knowledgeable, and embraces the mission and values of the school.  They understand the academic workload required by the students of both the Judaic and General Studies curriculum and will work with them to accommodate their academic and athletic needs.


We now offer 20 sports: Fall: Girls Volleyball, Boys and Girls Cross Country, Boys Flag Football, Boys and Girls Golf. Winter: Boys and Girls Soccer (both Varsity and JV levels), Boys and Girls Basketball (both Varsity and JV levels). Spring: Boys and Girls Tennis, Boys and Girls Track (running events only), Boys Baseball and Volleyball for Boys (Club Level) this year.


The life lessons learned through athletics are ones that our students will never forget.  I am committed to empowering all our student-athletes via their particular athletic arena and I am looking forward to another great school year.
