ABOUT NATIONAL SPORTS COLLEGE
The primary purpose of National Sports College is to enhance and develop values that foster leadership, self-discipline, and teamwork while providing successful, quality, competitive experiences that mirror the academic excellence of the institution. As students in the classroom strive for academic excellence, so do they on the athletic field in preparation, commitment and outcome.
Co-curricular programs at are developed for the purpose of supporting and enhancing the institution's basic missions of education and development, and the policies, practices and procedures of the Department of Soccer, Physical Education, and Tennis are designed to be consonant with those missions. The activities sponsored by the Department are designed to enrich the lives of our students, provide the necessary training ground for life growth, enhance the image of the institution, and build upon the academic mission of the College.
Within its resources, the Department is expected to provide a broad range of recreational and competitive programs for all in the college community who wish to participate: varsity athletics, physical education classes, club sports, intramurals, and use of facilities for personal fitness. These activities are intended most directly to benefit those community members (students, faculty, staff, and alumni) who participate in our programs.
Everyone is encouraged to play to the best of their abilities; however, a win-at-all-cost attitude is inappropriate and strongly discouraged. The genuine value of Intramural Sports comes from the recreation and camaraderie experienced with the other participants and staff of the program.
