K-12 Athletics

Welcome to Natomas Unified School District Athletics! We offer a variety of sports at our schools that support preparing student-athletes to graduate college and career ready, and to be productive, responsible, and engaged global citizens. We believe extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on students and play a key component in not only developing life skills but building self-esteem, establishing friendships, promoting self-discipline, and building character. Athletics are offered to students beginning in elementary school (4th-grade) and vary by school and season. All students must maintain a 2.0 or above, have a completed sports packet (with physical), and attend all practices/games after tryouts. We encourage you to explore this webpage and also the Parent University webpage to learn more about how to become a student-athlete, what it takes to play at the collegiate level, and athletic programs offered in Natomas Unified.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.” – Nelson Mandela

Message for Indoor and Outdoor Observers

As student-athletes return to playing indoor and outdoor sports, many families are asking, “Can we come watch?” We understand that families really want to see their kids play, and we want to accommodate this as safely as possible. Please click on the links below to read the updated CDPH guidelines for limited indoor and outdoor observers at competitions.

Importance Athletic Notice (February 2021)

On February 19, 2021, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) sent out a Memo with new, updated California Department of Public Health (CDPH) information in relation to high school Athletics. The new memo in addition to the new sport calendar are linked below.

Memo
Sport Calendar

As a reminder, each league will now be forming their own seasons.  Once the Capital Valley Conference (CVC) – Inderkum HS, the Greater Sacramento League (GSL) – Natomas HS – the Northern Pacific Athletic Conference (NPAC) – Leroy Greene have created their season of sport timelines and schedules, and they are approved, they will be posted on the website. 

Practices and competitions may begin as soon as allowed by the California Department of Public Health (colored tiers) and Sacramento County health authority guidelines, and in accordance with the leagues’ seasons of sport calendar, and with District approval. 

This is only a one year adjustment due to the pandemic and we will return to a normal, three season sports season (fall, winter, spring) the following year.

Athletic Directors/Coaching Staff will adjust their game schedules, practice schedules, and training regimens to best prepare the student-athletes for this new adaptation of the schedule. 

For Conditioning that is ongoing, please refer to our ‘Phased Return to Athletics’ plan for each site.

Visit your site’s athletic page for more information and updated game schedules – these will be adjusted once updates are approved and finalized by each league.

Each year the Natomas Unified School District requires that each student have a Student-Athlete Clearance Packet completed prior to being eligible to tryout or participate in a school-sponsored sports program. Part of the clearance packet is a physical form that needs to be signed by your child’s physician. The Student-Athlete Clearance Packet is only completed once per year and is due by the deadline of the first sport your child plays. Below you will find the required documents for the 2021-22 school year.
