Athletics at ANC

At ANC all students are welcome and encouraged to participate in athletics. Our no-cut policy promotes a healthy balance between competition and collaboration which challenges all students at their individual level.

Whether a student has played a sport since childhood or is trying it for the first time, there is a place for them on our teams. We welcome anyone who wants to work hard and be a part of a team. 

We promote a concept of teamwork which recognizes what is best in each athlete and actively build community spirit. Our athletic program values sportsmanship and develops physical, mental and spiritual fitness. We develop and apply moral virtues through athletic preparation and competition. 

Our program includes seven sports for each gender, most with a Varsity and JV level. Our facilities include five grass fields, one turf field, a field house with two gyms, tennis courts and an open-air ice rink.
