WELCOME BACK FROM ATHLETICS

Welcome to Nido Athletics!

At Nido, Athletics plays an important role in our community and especially in our student athletes' lives. We offer structured, organized sports and ongoing physical activities. Whether it is in a court, field or at the pool, we will always focus the program on our students, on what is best for them and in the best quality possible; creating an environment that creates excellence with the best positive experience for all.

A successful athletic program includes dedicated coaches, active support from the student body, outstanding leadership from school administrators, and most importantly, a great sense of pride fostered by the entire community.

We will continue to encourage our student athletes to compete with passion and to do it with class and dignity, always balancing their sports with their academic demands. Playing hard, playing fair, and dedicating themselves to be the best they can possibly be, but most importantly, having fun!

We have so much to look forward to in this new 2018-19 school year.

Lorena Rodríguez, our Aquatics Director, will be out this semester on maternity leave as her son Lucas was born in June 25th. While she is enjoying a wonderful time with her newborn baby, Felipe Salinas will be taking over her position. Please feel free to email him at fsalinas@nido.cl or stop by to talk to him in case you need to know anything regarding the aquatics activities and sports.

I encourage all the parents to learn more about our programs and the Nido Athletics Booster Club and to become part of the Nido family as a parent volunteer, supporter and fan. Donna O'Shannessy (nido.npa.bc@gmail.com) is the Nido Athletics Booster Club Chairperson and would love to hear from you.

The community's support is very important and we will need your help in the national and international events that we will host at Nido. For the first time officially, we will hold Junior Varsity SAAC tournaments and it is Nido's turn to organize the Junior Varsity SAAC Soccer tournament in mid October. It promises to be an exciting event.

In late November, we will again host the SAAC Swimming tournament. Nido has dominated in this competition and I am sure this year, we will continue to compete a very high level.

On behalf of our coaches, staff, and booster club, we welcome you once again to Nido de Aguilas and thank you in advance for your support. Through our combined efforts, we will continue to generate the continued resources necessary for consistent success within our programs.

I look forward to getting to know you all this semester. I feel honored to be part of this fabulous school and promise to work hard on your child's behalf to promote and strengthen the values of our programs.

With the Nido Eagles Spirit!
