NACA Athletics

athletics page cover
NACA Athletics is an extension of the Students’ educational experience. By approaching individual/team sports from a community-building base, along with an indigenous personal wellness perspective, we believe our student-athletes will have the opportunity to learn to become successful in persevering through competitive challenges.
The priority of NACA Athletics is to support the In-School curriculum and collaborate with the Out of School Time Activities, to assist in providing students with as many opportunities as possible in personal/physical wellness and healthy competition initiatives. Winning is not the sole purpose, goal or objective when participating in NACA Athletics activities, although we strive to teach the importance of being competitive through hard work and commitment. Believing in and modeling this mentality often shows the successful results that come from those values.
NACA Athletics promotes and encourages; commitment, dedication, healthy work ethics, teamwork and good sportsmanship, as well as encouraging the Student-Athletes to unleash their inner Warrior. When these objectives are accomplished and the goals met, winning on and off the fields and courts comes naturallyGO EAGLES!
