The 2017 football season begins on August 16, 2017. Online registration is open and required in advance of the first day of practice. Our football program currently offers two levels of play; varsity and c-team. This is a no-cut sport, although coaches may restrict play/access based on safety concerns.
Our "fall camp" schedule has been finalized and can be found here. Any changes to this calendar will be addressed via the team e-mail list or through the Remind group, and directions to joining each can be found in the attachment.
Games schedules will be posted online through NPSLathletics.org. Practice schedules will be released to the team when available.
