As we look across our nation during this time of both pandemic and social unrest, the Athletic Directors of Northshore stand together fighting for Equity and Racial Justice. We all may not be starting this journey from the same place, but we stand together to make Northshore a safe and supportive environment for all students and families. During this challenging time, we promise to work together in this fight to diminish institutional barriers and promote racial and educational justice. We commit to making this a better place for every person employed by or served by our schools in the Northshore School District.

North Creek Athletic Department

North Creek Athletics promotes excellence in athletics without compromising distinction in academics or integrity in its commitment to rules or conduct. Student-athletes are encouraged by the coaching and administrative staff to maintain a balance between athletics, academics, and the social aspects of high school.

Athletic participation gives an added dimension to the student's overall high school experience and provides an opportunity for social, moral, emotional and cultural growth and development.

The athletic programs strive to develop traits that, once acquired, will carry over and benefit student-athletes in their personal and professional endeavors. NCHS coaching and administrative staff work to instill in student-athletes an appreciation for hard work, perseverance, sportsmanship, winning and losing with dignity, teamwork and pride in accomplishment.
