Biography

Duane 'Duey' Weimer comes from Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Central Schools in Oneida County, where he has served as athletic director for the past three years and a teacher leader for physical education, health and family consumer science.

Before that, he spent three years as a teacher in one of the district’s elementary schools and 10 years in the middle school.

Outside of the classroom, Weimer has 20 years of coaching experience. At VVS, he has coached football, girls’ volleyball, boys’ track and field, and girls’ lacrosse. Weimer also coaches community soccer, tee-ball and basketball.

He is no stranger to taking over for well-liked people who have had a long tenure.

“In my prior administrative role at Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Central School District, I had replaced a longstanding, effective and highly respected leader much like Mr. Whitcomb, so I understand the challenges that I may face while assuming responsibility directing an extremely successful health, physical education and athletics program,” Weimer said. “I pledge to wholeheartedly work with the VCS stakeholders to ‘carry on’ and advance the Victor Blue Devils’ traditions and standard of quality and performance.”

Weimer has served as administrative representative for Section III Class B Football; the Tri-Valley League executive director’s secretary; co-representative for the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Transgender Council for Section III; a physical education presenter for the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance state and zone conferences; and the assistance coordinator for the “Coaches and Officials versus Cancer Basketball” event with the Utica Basketball Officials’ Board.

He was part of an extensive facilities improvement capital project at VVS, where he led the design team on the district’s outdoor athletic complex.

As VVS director of athletics and a coach, Weimer hosted numerous league and section championships. He is the recipient of the VVS’s first NYSPHSAA “Stay in the Game” Award honoring him for being a positive force on and off the field, actively assisting with a variety of local and district fundraising events as a tournament director.

Other achievements include being named the Central New York Middle School Physical Education Teacher of the Year in 2009-10; being a New York State Middle School Association conference presenter, 2014; NYSAHPERD presenter, 2009-14; and securing funding for innovative athletics such as low ropes, snow shoeing and mountain biking.

Most recently, he received a distinguished service award from his local basketball officials’ board and was named the Central New York Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Director of the Year Award recipient.

Prior to joining VVS, Weimer graduated with top honors from State University College at Cortland, where he earned a bachelor of science degree in education (physical education). He also played football at Cortland and earned a master’s degree in education. In addition, he has a an advanced certificate in school building leader/school district leader from SUNY Stony Brook University.
