The Newark Catholic Athletic Organization (NCAA) is a group of dedicated and hard working parents, teachers, alumni, and community supporters who help Newark Catholic achieve the unique position of having a self-supported athletic program, not funded by tuition. These members are proud of the student athletes and are dedicated to helping Newark Catholic continue its tradition of excellence in athletics, helping to round out the student experience at NC.
NCAA Policy for Families of Athletes
Again this school year the Newark Catholic Athletic Department will institute a policy, recommended by your Newark Catholic Athletic Association (NCAA), which requires the family of every athlete participating in a sport to purchase 2 tickets, a total of $100, for an NCAA sponsored event during the 2016-2017 school year. For families with a student or students in a sport each season, that equals 6 tickets. The dates for these events are shown above.
Ticket money will be due at the initial parent meeting for each sport. Checks should be made out to the NCAA with the athlete’s name, sport and ticket request in the memo line. Checks will be collected by the NCAA team liaison for each sport.
This is a policy that was entered into with a lot of discussion among the Newark Catholic Administration, the Athletic Department, the NCAA and other interested parties. For those who attend NCAA events, this will not be an extra expense. Parents can also sell their tickets to others to reduce their out of pocket expense, but we hope you will be able to attend and even win some money. Your NCAA can also help parents sell their tickets. You will not only be supporting your athlete(s), but also future Newark Catholic athletes. A large part of what makes Newark Catholic such a special place is our sense of “family”. NCAA events are a great way to socialize and get to know other parents, coaches, alumni and community leaders.
