High School Athletics
Nido's High School Athletics Programs are competitive both locally and in the South American Activities Conference (SAAC), and we regularly host tournaments and competitions at our athletic facilities, including our world-class Aquatics Center. Nido offers a wide variety of seasonal sports at both the junior varsity and varsity levels, and our coaching staff excels at developing in our students both athletic talent and a healthy and positive attitude toward athletic competition and performance. Wellness is an important component of Nido's athletics program, and we discuss nutrition, rest, and recovery with students to complement the exercise component of their physical training.
Although Nido athletes are very talented and competitive, they are taught to value sportsmanship, perseverance, teamwork, and spirit above the scoreboard. Parents of athletes also commit to supporting this approach, and we are as proud to receive a letter praising our students' behavior and character on a tournament trip as we are when they win the tournament.
This past weekend Nido de Aguilas hosted a memorable and wonderful Cheerleading and Dance Camp with more than 25 teams from 12 local schools participating in our gymnasium and Fine Arts Building to learn the latest skills and dance moves.
On Saturday, April 8th the Aquatics Center hosted four big events. Our student athletes from ES, MS, and HS demonstrated their great skills, passion and team spirit.
Parents are invited to spend a morning exploring the hills of Nido with Outdoor Education Coordinator Zack Beaty. Get inspired about one of the main tenants that makes a Nido education special—the commitment to hands-on, experiential learning and the Outdoor Education program. Take in the beauty of Nido's surrounding land while learning about the exciting future of the Outdoor Education program and building community with other parents.
The Nido Community is invited to participate in the Aquatics Center's Recreational Swimming OPEN HOUSE WEEK from Monday, March 6th to Saturday, March 11th. During this week all Nido community members will be permitted to participate in any and all pool activities at NO COST!
Information on the 2nd season of Middle School athletics is now available for students interested in soccer, track & field, volleyball, cheer & dance, swimming, and water polo.
