Welcome to the Upper Dauphin Area School District athletics website.  As an alumnus of Upper Dauphin Area, I am proud to serve as the Athletic Director for the UDASD. Our Athletic Department staff try hard to provide a high quality experience for our student-athletes.  We have a rich history of athletics here at Upper Dauphin Area dating back to 1965.  This history includes multiple league and District III team championships as well as individual medalists at the District and PIAA levels.  We take a lot of pride in our program and in the student-athletes who have graduated and moved on to college athletics and success in their respective professions.

Should you have any questions about our athletic program, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Brent E. Bell
