Athletics

This year we have three varsity fall teams (girls volleyball, boys soccer, and co-ed cross country).  As always, to participate in sports at NGFS, each participant will need to know a few important facts. 

  • Each athlete interested in participating must have an up-to-date sports physical on file with the athletic department. Please use this form.
  • Parents and athletes need to complete this concussion form.
  • Each of the previous two forms need to be completed every 12 months for your student to be eligible to participate in sports.
