High school athletics can play a key component in developing life skills. One of the district goals is to prepare students to be college and career ready, and there are some essential ways you can help support in that endeavor. If your student-athlete desires to move on and play at the collegiate level, we encourage you to explore the following resources. Families can find general information on NCAA qualifications, on what it takes to play at the next level, and understand that academics, social media content, character qualities, and much more go into being a ‘recruitable’ player. Yes, skill matters, but there is so much more! To learn more about athletics in Natomas Unified School District, please visit the Athletics web page.
