Go Beyond Winning & Losing

Go Beyond Winning & Losing

The Athletics program at Northwest enables students to tap into their skills and exercise resiliency in the face of competition.  Our student athletes embrace the responsibility of representing both the school and their teammates through teamwork, sportsmanship, and a healthy competitive spirit.  

The Northwest School embraces competition and strives for excellence. And all our teams are led by experienced coaches who excel in developing players to their full potential.

As a member of local conferences and statewide associations Northwest has consistently fielded teams that advanced to league and state playoffs and in some sports have won championships.

Middle School Athletics

Middle School Athletics at Northwest provide an opportunity for students with varying levels of experience and ability, to engage in, learn from, and have fun in competitive team sports. For more experienced and competitive athletes, we offer teams dedicated to advancing the skills that will prepare them to join Varsity teams at the Upper School level in the future. For newer or less experienced athletes we offer teams that are more focused on skill building and developing an enjoyment of team sports.

As part of our PE program, we also teach importance of fair play, how to be a great teammate, and the importance of being able to show mental strength in the face of adversity.
