Athletic Director's Welcome

Commitment makes the difference!

Welcome to the Northfield Mount Hermon athletics website. Student-athletes at NMH are committed to excellence in everything they do. Our athletics program serves as a critical component of our purposeful education for the “head, heart, and hand.” NMH athletic programs have a long tradition of winning, and that makes us stand out. However, it is the character and drive of our athletes that truly sets us apart.

The Athletics and Physical Education Program at NMH is an integral part of the overall educational experience. We offer each student, regardless of ability, the opportunity to experience growth, accomplishment, and success at his or her own skill level. All NMH students participate in at least one team athletic activity each year — typically as a member of one of more than 60 teams competing in 20 sports across three seasons. In addition to interscholastic teams, NMH has a one-of-a-kind Outdoor Program offering alternatives to traditional sports and PE activities.

In most sports, we offer varsity and junior varsity teams. When student interest and numbers are high enough, we offer a third team. Sports that lend themselves easily to a third team may include soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and rowing. We encourage students to go out for a team of their choice, and if that choice doesn’t work out, students are asked to try something new to expand beyond their comfort zones and find new passions.

Being a member of a team is an opportunity to learn and develop skills, and build enduring relationships. Students will learn life lessons such as how to work within a team, selflessness, perseverance, relentlessness, and how to win and lose with grace, humility, and sportsmanship.

NMH student-athletes are challenged and supported by experienced faculty-coaches who promote and deepen their understanding of the sport and foster, through personal example and mentorship, a deep commitment to teammates, school, and community.

Regardless of your athletic background, interests, or goals, we have the right opportunity for you to hone your skills for college athletics, try something new, and push yourself to develop lifetime fitness activities. The NMH athletic program will exceed your expectations and challenge you to achieve more every day!

Take a look at our website. You may find your favorite sport or perhaps discover a new perfect fit.
