NRHS Athletics

 

It is a privilege for students to become a member of a school team at NRHS.   Student athletics is designed to promote character and leadership development, physical and mental fitness, opportunities for participation and athletic excellence through instruction and competition.   

Qualities such as discipline, pride, dedication, punctuality and the ability to win and lose with grace transfer to students’ lives and enable them to be good citizens and effective leaders.

It is important that student athletes feel they are part of the total athletic program.  Student athletes are expected to participate and support student council fundraiser/events and support other teams by attending games and tournaments.

Student athletes are ambassadors for NRHS, their team and community.  It is expected that NRHS student athletes display a respect for players on opposing teams, officials, coaches, teammates, fans and the facilities they are using.
