Winter Sports Resumption (Jan. 2021)

All,

 

On Monday, January 18th, Governor Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) lifted the Tier 3 Mitigations in Region 10, which had paused our Winter Sports.  As a result, we will resume all low-risk Winter Sports beginning on Thursday, January 21st  (Girls Badminton, Girls & Boys Bowling, Girls Gymnastics, Boys Swim & Dive, Cheer, and Dance)

 

 

District 219 Athletic Departments will continue to follow IDPH and IHSA Guidelines as our Winter Sports resume.  It is imperative that all student-athletes communicate any Covid-19 symptoms to their coaches before attending any practices.  Student-athletes must also be registered on the 8 to 18 website and have a current physical (conducted in the last 13 months) in order to participate in Winter Sports.

 

 

As a reminder, here are the Athletic COVID Safety Protocols for our Winter Sports.

 

 

Within the next two weeks, the IHSA will provide start and end dates for all sports that have yet to participate, as well as important guidelines for “contact days” (similar to this Fall).  As we finalize our revised competition schedules for Winter Sports, we will begin to explore options for contact days for our student-athletes beginning in February.  We will communicate information to student-athletes and families as it becomes available.  

 

As a reminder, please make sure you are registered for your specific sport HERE.  You can also find a list of all Head Coaches and their contact information HERE.

 

If you have any questions, please contact the Head Coach of each sport or the Athletic Directors (emails listed below).

 IF YOU PLAY, YOU WIN

Niles North Vikings Athletic programs compete in the Central Suburban League. The Central Suburban League is one of the most prestigious and competitive interscholastic high school athletic leagues in the state of Illinois. The Niles North Vikings are proud to compete in the SOUTH Division of the CSL. Niles North offers twenty-four (24) interscholastic athletic programs that compete during the school year. The competition schedules are organized according to the three seasons - FALL, WINTER and SPRING. Information contained within this website will clarify which sports compete during which season. 

Current physical forms and athletic permit forms must be on file before any Niles North student will be allowed to try out for a sport. This is an Illinois High School Association rule - therefore, no exceptions will be made. Per Niles Township High School District 219 Board of Education policy, student-athletes must maintain WEEKLY academic eligibility to participate in sports at Niles North High School.

We hope this website provides answers to all your sports questions. We look forward to talking and meeting with each of you whether in our offices or on a playing field. We ask that you be respectful of school policies and the health and safety of all and leave your tobacco products and your pets at home. Thank you and... Go Vikings!
