WELLNESS AT NNPS
Athletics at NNPS
The Athletic Program at Newport News Public Schools provides an opportunity for those students endowed with the physical and mental ability to compete at a level higher than that offered in the normal instructional program. This program will allow the talented athletes to develop their skills and knowledge to a higher degree of competency on the practice field and offer them the laboratory of the playing field to measure their accomplishments in competition with their peers.
In addition to the development of these physical skills, the athletic program will offer the athlete the opportunity to become a more useful and loyal member of society by developing a desire to achieve excellence but with the willingness to make personal sacrifices for the benefit of the team. Close contact with teammates and opponents will develop a sense of loyalty and dedication as well as a respect for the dignity of others.
Realignment puts schools in different conferences
The Virginia High School League has given a new shape to high-school athletics in the state, which could result eventually in different rivalries for NNPS schools. But, for now, most of the change is structural.
The NNPS Athletic Handbook is a resource for athletes and parents and includes letters from the superintendent and athletic director, sample forms, VHSL and NCAA eligibility requirements, athletic insurance information, official signals and more. Please call your child's school with any questions.
