NEWS & UPDATES:
An important message to athletes from the WIAA:
All athletic seasons have been postponed. The middle school athletic directors have put together a plan for sports to resume January 4, 2021. This plan will be communicated upon its approval from our Mead School District leadership. (9/12/2020)
Registration for the 2020-21 school year is open. Please check out the "Athletic Online Registration" under the Activities tab on the Northwood homepage.
Practices at Northwood run from 2:45-5:00pm on Monday-Friday for the first 2 weeks of a season. The following weeks will depend on the game schedule and coaches will send home schedules for each individual team. Activity buses are available on Monday-Thursday to get students home after practice. If you are picking your athlete up after practice, please plan on being at Northwood by 5:10. Morning practices often occur during volleyball and softball. Those practices run from 6:15-7:25am.
Game schedules will be sent out by coaches and can also be found on the Northwood Athletic Calendar on our website.

District Athletic Philosophy
The philosophy of the Mead School District is founded and based upon the principles identified in the district’s foundational student learning goals. Included in this mission is the belief that human wellness and aesthetic experiences are integral parts of the educational experience. To serve that mission, the primary function of the interscholastic and intramural programs is to provide participatory opportunities for as many students as possible. These programs seek to enhance the psychological, emotional, social, and physical development of each student.
The Mead School District believes that participation in athletic programs can enhance the development of the values of cooperation, honesty, sportsmanship, responsibility, respect, perseverance, and commitment. Students will be encouraged to develop their athletic skills and compete to the best of their abilities. The Mead School District is obligated to provide a supportive environment in which students can pursue athletic experiences that maximize their potential. While individual achievements are valued and encouraged, team achievements are of primary importance. Athletics, in addition, can make significant contributions to the educational experience of all Mead students, faculty, staff, and district patrons through the cultivation and enhancement of community.
