NHCS - Athletics Department

Mission Statement

Interscholastic athletics is a co-curricular activity and is an integral part of the educational process for student athletes in New Hanover County Schools. Athletics provide not only an avenue for the development of athletic skills, but for the development of the total person.  

Athletics teaches life skills including responsibility, accountability, team building, fair play, and determination.

The New Hanover County School System emphasizes academic accountability and fair play. It promotes attitudes and practices that keep winning in perspective and discourages activities that would be considered unsportsmanlike.

IT IS THE BELIEF OF THE NEW HANOVER COUNTY SCHOOLS THAT ALL STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN COMPETITIVE ATHLETICS.
