Message From the Athletic Director


We are all in the same situation as we experience a great deal of uncertainty due to COVID-19. STORM Athletics will follow guidelines set forth by the FHSAA as well as our own Medical Advisory Panel. I will make every effort to offer some type of program albeit in a modified form that all students can enjoy (safely).


As I enter my third year as the Athletic Director at Katz Yeshiva High School of South Florida, our plans to expand our Athletic offerings have been delayed due to Covid-19. We will revisit these offerings next school year.


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.


Our coaching is staff 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 currently offer 14 sports: Fall: Girls Volleyball, Boys and Girls Cross Country, Boys Flag Football, Boys and Girls Golf. Winter: Boys and Girls Soccer, Boys and Girls Varsity Basketball, and JV Boys Basketball. Spring: Boys and Girls Tennis, and Baseball. We are always open to adding sports if there is enough interest generated by the student body.


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.
