NPS Athletics Dept

Welcome to Norwich Public Schools Athletics Department where we offer a wide variety of sports to students in grades 6-8.

Our goal is to always keep as many students as possible active on a team. However, sometimes cuts are inevitable. In an attempt to minimize cuts and allow more student participation, over the last three years, we have offered Junior Varsity (JV) programs.

Currently, NPS Athletics is a part of a middle school league made up various school in Southeastern Connecticut.
