IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR POTENTIAL NHS ATHLETES
BEFORE A STUDENT IS PERMITTED TO DRAW EQUIPMENT OR PRACTICE (in any manner including pre-season and/or summer conditioning) he/she must have a health screening, insurance coverage and parental consent documentation. The health form date must be "current"---that is, not older than 365 days---and, upon expiration during any part of the participation, must be renewed before the student can continue to take part.
Both of the following forms must be completed IN FULL and on file in the activities office prior to any type of participation in a sport.
ACTIVITY/ATHLETIC CODE OF CONDUCT CHANGE
Students who are members of an athletic team, performance group or involved in a competitive extracurricular activity need to be aware of this IMPORTANT CHANGE in the Activity/Athletic Code of Conduct:
Effective immediately Rule 34 of the Activity/Athletic Code of Conduct has changed. It now states that if you are in violation of the code in or out of school 365 days of the year (including summer vacation and school breaks) you will receive the consequences of the code violation at the beginning of your next team and/or group participation. Prior to this change the Activity/Athletic Code of Conduct was in effect during the school year only.
Any questions should be directed to the CCPS student relations office at 239-377-0509.
ATTENTION HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR ATHLETES
Now is the time for college-bound student-athletes in the junior class to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center if they plan on participating in college athletics. Early registration promotes positive planning and involvement, bypasses the last-minute rush and helps college-bound student-athletes avoid issues that may delay their academic and amateur certifications. The registration process is easy and can be done by:
As a reminder as a college-bound student-athlete you need to apply to the college or university they are interested in attending. Some student-athletes think that because they are being recruited or because they have registered with the Eligibility Center, they do not need to apply for admission. Be advised that athletics eligibility and admission to a college or university are two separate processes and that both need to be completed.
OWN A PIECE OF GOLDEN EAGLE HISTORY
The “original” Naples High School gymnasium opened its doors (along with the rest of the new high school) in the fall of 1960. Forty nine years later, in the summer of 2009, a new state-of-the art gymnasium replaced the original one, and the “old” gym was demolished and now is gone forever. Although that “old” gym is gone, many of the memories that were made there (basketball, volleyball, wrestling, high school dances and even graduations…) will last a lifetime.
The Eagles’ All-Sports Booster Club is now offering everyone a limited time opportunity to recapture a tangible piece of those memories… in the form of an engraved wooden plank from the original Naples High School gymnasium floor. Each 12” X 2” plank of wood is engraved like the picture below:
If you would like to purchase one or more of these pieces of Naples High School history, you can do so one of two ways. They will be available for sale at all home varsity football games this fall, and they will be on sale while supplies last, in the Naples High School athletic office, located in Building One at NHS.
The cost is $20.00 each. Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit ALL sports at Naples High School. If you have questions or if you would like to place your order via e-mail, please contact Trish Hendry (athletic department assistant) at HendryPa@collier.k12.fl.us.
