    NEW MILFORD ATHLETICS
     

    While academics plays the most vital role in helping to shape a student's future, athletics plays an important part as well. Life lessons of sacrifice, perseverance, responsibility, teamwork, and commitment are reinforced through athletics. We hope that our athletes will strive to be the best they can be daily both in the classroom and in athletics.   Even a higher education school such as Princeton University promotes athletics and its "cocurricular experience."  (Refer to Princeton University Athletics)

    At New Milford we expect our athletes to represent the school with respect and dignity as well demonstrate character and sportsmanship on and off the field.   Appropriate expectations are always expressed by our teams and coaches.  Be the best that you can be as a person and a student athlete.  Always "Play Like a Knight and Educate through Athletics."
     
     
     
    Due to the current conditions summer camps as well as summer High School practices have been suspended until further notice  Paperwork for the fall is available on the Forms tab including the permission packet which must be submitted electronically.  More information about medical paperwork will follow soon.  Please email
