Building self-esteem and self-confidence is an ongoing process, used in both games and practices. Through this process Newton North coaches challenge and develop players, both technically and emotionally, in a positive manner, using both praise and constructive criticism. Coaches are encouraged to make praise personal, criticism impersonal.
As members of the Newton North athletic program, students and coaches are expected to demonstrate proper respect for each other, other teams and coaches, teammates, officials, spectators and equipment. Student athletes and coaches are expected to exhibit the highest level of conduct, both on and off the playing field, as they are, at all times, representatives of their team, school and community.
