All students who attend Northwest Catholic have the opportunity to challenge themselves outside of the classroom on one of our sports teams. As far back as 1964, the school’s founding principal, the Rev. Bradford Colton, acknowledged the role that athletics played in the development of young adults. At that time, Northwest Catholic offered five Varsity level sports teams to its student-athletes and has built on that number ever since. Today, Northwest Catholic offers its students the opportunity to participate on any one of the 44 (including Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity levels) athletic programs offered at the school.
The coaches at Northwest Catholic dedicate themselves to our programs and the student-athletes that participate in them. Their passion for the game and expertise in their sports earn them much recognition within their conferences as well as within both the state of Connecticut and in national coaches associations. In addition to teaching the X’s and O’s of their sports, all our coaches prepare their student-athletes for life outside of Northwest Catholic by teaching them teamwork, dedication, values and character.
Though the seasons have passed and the athletes’ faces have changed, Northwest Catholic still prides itself on a rich tradition of achievement and sportsmanship. We pride ourselves on maintaining the highest level of sportsmanship, win or lose and have been recognized countless times by several coaches associations as well as the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference as one of the best schools in the state for sportsmanship!. Our students are a great group of dedicated young adults who love to be challenged in everything that they do.
