The goal of the Northampton athletic program is to provide a competitive arena where student-athletes can display their talents, enhance their physical wellness and skills, and gain greater technical and tactical understanding of and appreciation for their chosen sport. We expect all our student-athletes to display a competitive spirit, outstanding sportsmanship, and exemplary character throughout the year, on and off the field of play. The athletic program should be a positive component of the student-athlete’s educational experience.
Participation in the athletic program is considered a privilege and requires student-athletes to commit their time, energy and loyalty, as well as accept coaches’ decisions, training techniques, and expectations. Student-athletes should willingly assume all responsibilities and obligations that are inherent in and unique to the program. Student-athletes must understand and appreciate that they not only represent themselves during competition, but also their teammates, their school and the Northampton community.
