UPS Athletic Director to Return in Full Time Capacity
Uxbridge Public Schools Athletic Director to Return in Full-time Capacity
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Frank Tiano is pleased to announce that Mr. Christopher Carbone will continue as Athletic Director in a full-time capacity after joining the school district last fall. The Athletic Director is responsible for the programming for student-athletes at both Whitin Intermediate School and Uxbridge High School.
Mr. Carbone had just completed a year-long Executive Internship with the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) when he filled the vacant Athletic Director position last September. He stepped in and immediately took charge of our fall sports already in progress. Since then, Mr. Carbone has worked diligently to enhance organization of the department by working collaboratively with coaches and administrators to develop systems that ensure stability going forward.
“Chris got thrown into the fire,” said Dr. Tiano. “He was a first-time AD joining a district already into its first season. He immediately went to work building relationships with students and staff while assessing the department. With his training and desire to do well, I know he will help take our programs to new levels.”
Mr. Carbone, holds a Masters Degree in Education, with a concentration in Athletic Administration, from Endicott College and a Bachelor of Arts from UMass Amherst. He also holds several certifications including: Athletic Administrator; Registered Athletic Administrator; Interscholastic Coach; State Coaches Education; Heartsaver CPR/AED; and Fitness Trainer. He is also in the process of completing his credential work as a Certified Athletic Administrator, the highest credential available to athletic directors
In addition to his MIAA internship, Mr. Carbone brings additional practical experience, on and off the field, to UPS as well. He served as Assistant Athletic Director for Milton Academy for a year and has coached in high school and college for football, track and field, cross country, and strength and conditioning. Mr. Carbone shared, "I am extremely fortunate for the opportunity to continue to build and strengthen our athletic department and showcase what Uxbridge High School and Whitin Intermediate School Athletics truly has to offer.”
