Physical Education/Athletic Department
It is the mission of the Physical Education Program at Northport High School to demonstrate a commitment to the comprehensive education and development of each student as an individual and as a member of the school community. Specifically, physical education activities, while embracing the New York State Learning Standards, offer students an opportunity to: a)understand the benefits of engaging in regular physical activity now and for a lifetime; b)improve cardiovascular and respiratory health through vigorous activities; c) demonstrate an understanding of how to participate in a "Safe and Healthy Environment"; d) develop sound "character" traits through participation in physical activities; e) promote and help improve self-esteem; f) help promote socially acceptable behavior, cooperation and teamwork through activities; g) develop life-long skills that students can carry into their adult years.

ATTENTION ALL STUDENT ATHLETES
As of January 24th, Governor Cuomo lifted the current pause on High-Risk Sports for New York State. The sports that tentatively can begin on Monday, February 1, 2021, are Boys and Girls Basketball, Competition Cheerleading, and Wrestling. This is contingent on authorization from the local department of health.
In order to be prepared for the opening day, all interested student-athletes must register on our online registration platform, Family ID. The window is now open and will close Wednesday, January 27, 2021. All must be registered by that date so our Nursing staff can process all of the information.
Please note that at this time, Section XI will not be moving forward with middle school early winter or late winter sports. Should we receive additional guidance from Section XI, we will provide an update.
