Athletic Contact Days

Hello Niles North Families, 


Last Friday, District 219 announced that we can conduct the IHSA “Contact Days” for our sports teams.  HERE is a link to the Contact Days schedule, which will take place over the next five weeks.   


To sign up, please register your athlete on our 8 to 18 website.  Directions for how to register can be found HERE.  


In addition to registering, each student athlete must have a valid sports physical (within the last 13 months) in order to participate.  Student athletes can bring the physical to the first day of practice or they can scan/email it to Peggy Howard (marhow@d219.org).  


Please note that participation in Contact Days is completely voluntary.  We will follow all Covid safety guidelines as outlined by the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois High School Association. Guidelines for Athletic Contact Days can be found HERE.


If you have any questions, please contact the Head Coach of each sport or the Athletic Directors (emails listed below).  We are excited to offer these Contact Days and look forward to seeing your student athletes soon!

Mission Statement


     Participation in interscholastic athletics provides students with opportunities to acquire important, lifelong skills for future success in life.  In addition, the athletic program is designed to positively contribute to the Niles Township community.  Through intentional teaching and positive reinforcement, we strive to teach our students the power of success through humility, and perseverance through challenges, obstacles, and defeat.  

     The primary objective of the athletic programs in the Niles Township High School District is to provide wholesome opportunities for students to compete and learn important life lessons, values, and favorable habits and attitudes in social settings.  To realize this goal, District 219 athletic programs recognize the value of participation and commitment to developing a competitive interscholastic athletic program, and emphasize the importance of balancing victory with defeat in order to develop and improve positive character traits among all participants.

     Every effort is made to support District 219 athletic programs with the best facilities, equipment, and most qualified staff available.  Coaches, directors, and sponsors must be positive role models with knowledge of their activity, ethical behavior, strong leadership, and interest in the holistic development of all student athletes.

     All student athletes are held to high expectations of academic achievement and success in the classroom.  Coaches and teachers work as partners to provide opportunities for the success of every student.  District 219 athletic programs seek to provide a positive image of athletics at Niles North and Niles West High Schools, strive for excellence that will produce winning teams within the bounds of good sportsmanship, and ensure growth and development that will increase the number of individual participants in interscholastic athletics.
