Athletic Director's Welcome

Welcome to NHS Athletics

On behalf of the athletic department we would like to welcome you to Northville High School. The athletic program at Northville High School is an extension of the classroom and considers athletics to be an integral part of the Northville learning community. Since research indicates a student involved in co-curricular activities achieves higher academically and has a greater chance for success in adulthood, we stress academics and athletics must co-exist and believe you cannot have one without the other.
Many of the character traits required to be a successful student-athlete are exactly those that will promote a successful life after high school, and thus we firmly believe student-athletes, staff, parents, and community members should adhere to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, honesty, and responsibility.
It is our goal to provide an opportunity for participation in a wide variety of student-selected activities. We believe participation in athletics is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the student-athletes family, the school, the team, the Northville community and the students themselves. Our commitment to excellence in athletics implies that the Northville athletic department will provide exemplary leadership, appropriate facilities and support services to allow its student-athletes to compete at the highest level of interscholastic competition and to reach their educational and athletic progress objectives.
The success of the Northville athletic department depends on a shared responsibility of students, staff, parents, and the Northville community. We look forward to working with all of you during this academic school year, as we strive for excellence, together.
