NPHS offers the most diverse selection of sports programs of any school in the region. Our sports compete in NSAA Class A or B, depending on the sport. NSAA sanctioned athletics and activities in Nebraska are based on the enrollment from NPHS. These programs will be put into classifications according to their sport or activity. In whole, the community of North Platte is very supportive of our programs, and our athletic programs strive to make our school and community proud.

The activity program of North Platte High School is a vital part of the educational system and is a great tradition. Our tradition has been to participate in such a way that honor comes to our students, our school and our community. Such a tradition is worthy of the best efforts of all concerned. Participating in school athletics/activities is considered an extension of, but separate from, the regular school program. While the regular curricular program is a right afforded to each student, participation in the extracurricular program is a privilege and as such carries with it certain expectations beyond those found in normal classroom situation.
PURPOSE OF ACTIVITIES
The purpose of extracurricular activities is to help students grow and mature into respected members of society. As a participant, you are and will continue to be an important part of life in America, and these ideals you aspire to, will become a part of your value system and will remain with you throughout your life. These ideals will be transmitted to those who watch you perform and will be reflected in a constructive way in the lives of others.
Any student is welcome and encouraged to try out for any of the interscholastic teams and/or join any club or activity available to them. Many of the interscholastic teams have a requirement to meet the guidelines established by the Nebraska State Activities Association and North Platte High School. Students must agree to follow the guidelines established in this booklet. The guidelines established herein for the interscholastic programs of NPHS were developed by the cooperative efforts of the sponsors, the administration, and the board of education. They are indicative of what we hope to accomplish in our activity program.
