Northampton Area High School Athletic Department
Northampton Area School District is committed to creating an avenue for each student to participate in athletics by offering a quality athletic program. We strive to teach the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, hard work, discipline as well as individual achievement. Success is not measured by the win-loss record but by the growth and development of each individual student within the community. Northampton Area High School & Middle School athletic teams compete against other public and private schools as members of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference. The "Konkrete Kids" are geographically located in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association's District XI.
