Congratulations to the student-athletes who were recognized by the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools and the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association for their outstanding athletic achievements this fall!
Athletics play an integral role in the NSA experience. Every interested student has an opportunity to become involved in the athletic program as a player, manager, statistician or athletic training student aide. While exploring their passions, students are able to develop important life skills, such as responsibility, leadership, perseverance and working with others toward a common goal. Our highly-qualified, compassionate coaches emphasize respect, teamwork, courage, integrity and determination on and off the field and courts. Discover how NSA athletics can help your student excel.
Being part of a team has taught me responsibility and accountability. Everyone else on the team is counting on you to fulfill your role. If one person isn’t doing their job, the whole team will suffer because of it. Sports have also taught me how to face and overcome adversity. A lot of times in sports, not everything is going your way, but you must continue to play and figure out how to succeed."Walker Wood ’20
